I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than an year)

Pros

You will get paid on time every month.

Cons

Salaries are really low.
No growth opportunities.
It did not felt like you were working for an international company, it was managed as a mexican company. Meaning you would not get the same training, benefits and transmision of company's values as the people in United States.
No bonuses.
My manager would give me a revision performance withouth talking to me first.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reestructure the entire Mexico division.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Co workers are awesome - great talent pool!!

    Cons

    Sharks with very questionable morals with respect to what is "the right thing to do". It's all about the $ and not the people. There have literally been people who worked themselves to death trying to handle the workload with very little in return. This is a cash-cow and there is not a significant overall interest in the employees (despite the fascade generated through training - it isn't put to work) In general, this company wants you to live-to-work NOT work-to-live and in most cases, the compensation is unfufilling at best and terrible in most cases, gased upon the huge workload.

    They keep piling on the work until you say "whoa'; caution - saying "whoa" automatically means you are no longer an asset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reasonable expectations.
