I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Arrow employees are the company's biggest asset Average Salaries for the marketplace and economic situation Flexibility to work from home when necessary

Cons

Technology needs a major upgrade to be competitive in the Global Marketplace Heavy on the executive level light on the ground floor level Month end/quarter end extended hours without additional compensation Workload unbalanced

Advice to Management

Get to know your employees in all the locations and buildings, cities and countries. The executive suites tend to be isolated from the workers and there is little to no face to face interactions with higher level directors and above. Invite guest speakers from other companies to speak about successes and failures in their organizations. Eliminate costs by restructuring employee reviews by talking with the employees to convey messages instead of spending a lot of money on additional time consuming online reading materials. Revisit the salary structures annually and compensate on performance instead of on a "meeting expectations" flat average line rating system. Promote from within. There is a huge talent pool hungry for advancement with the experience and skills that will support the planned growth. You have some very incredible and amazing people. The growing Denver business marketplace has recognized this and is daily taking the talent away from the company by providing them with advanced opportunities they are not getting at Arrow.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Great management - those in charge know their jobs inside and out. Always given the tools necessary to complete the job. Great opportunity for growth at the corporate level for those with initiative. Great values and forward thinking is apparent.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities limited at local branches, restructuring is disruptive (hopefully this is only temporary)

    Advice to Management

    When making large changes to internal structure, be sure to implement enough time for new recruits to get trained and up to speed.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strategy to expand beyond normal distribution.

    Cons

    Bell curved employee annual reviews...which are used to give performance raises. Work from home flexibility non existent at this location, very much a corporate office mentality. Integration of purchased companies lacking. UNITY project (one global system) now 3 years and millions of dollars past due.

    Advice to Management

    Millions spent on branding and commercials that are seen ... Where? Employee town halls? The ROI appears small. No transparency...do as I say not as I do atmosphere. IE no trips, expenses, but exceptions are made daily. Stop putting out mandates and immediately providing work arounds. It's either yes or no. Sabbaticals and ESOP ended for 'normal' employees. No explanation if ESOP ended for the chairman and CEO and balance of the board of directors. Retain good talent and pay market value. Rate managers on their churn, including HR managers.
