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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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.
