Great Opportunities - but no work life balance

I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Cutting edge experiences in most fields, with unusual freedom to innovate or research and adopt best practices.

Cons

You must be devoted to the company and travel schedules can be grueling. As a single person "with no ties / home responsibilities" I was given what I felt to be an unfair proportion of the work involving travel vs colleagues who had spouses / family. I believe that living single is often more difficult because you don't have someone to take help out with life responsibilities!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think it through! Just because I don't have kids doesn't mean that I shouldn't have a life outside of work!

    Pros

    For the most part management is clear about the direction of the company. The company is doing well nationally and internationally so it is fairly stable. Work life can be a bit hectic and demanding especially around the end of each quarter. Most jobs are in the area of parts order fulfillment or electronic parts sales. Work is consistent and the pay rates are mostly competitive.

    Cons

    Over the last couple of years the benefit packages have been getting a lot more costly. In addition the employee stock purchase program keeps getting suspended. Finally the sabbatical program has been cut permanently. The company has had to tighten the belt and that has been reflected in the move of the corporate HQ as well as cramming more people into smaller cube spaces.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to rehumanized the work environment.
