Pros

The employees at Arrow Electronics are a pleasure to work with.

Cons

The IT orginization needs to be re-thought.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The way the IT org is structured is not conducive to allowing employees to perform to their full potential. The separation of duties is too great that it is impossible to feel 'a part of'. Instead there is a feeling of 'I did my part' and that is that. This is unfortunate as most employees are knowledgeable and willing enough to where many hats, if allowed.

    Pros

    Offer a lot of opportunities for hiring within. When plant closed, were offered generous severance packages, or chance to relocate out of state and a moving assistance.

    Cons

    Was hired on from being a temp, and the process was very time consuming and seemed like paperwork wasn't processed as efficiently as possible.

    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!
