Current Employee - Field Applications Engineer in George Town (Malaysia)

I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good company (One of leading distributors in the world as well as ASEAN region)
Good bosses (Always have your back when you need them, fight for your incentives)
Good colleagues (Friendly and helpful)
Above average pay (Not the highest in the industry but relatively high compare to smaller distributors)

Cons

Horrible workload (Working hour: 9am - 6pm but you are expected to work at home at night as well as during weekends, preparing reports, clearing emails and solving customers problem)
For technical team - Not product focus (expect you to sell and promote almost every brands)
Cannot grow technically (only have general product knowledge)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For technical team, you need to train them specifically on brands / products that you want to grow and promote. A technical person will have limited time and resources to learn every single brand Arrow carries. Provide the right technical training to your technical team, invest in them and in near future, you will have the right team to grow your demand creation business.
