Pros

It is a great place to work for, management is very supportive and there is a lot opportunity for growth. I had a great experience working here.

Cons

It is a dynamic company and during my time there there were many layoffs.

Advice to Management

Evaluation to the employees performance is done once a year. A feedback should be given along the year to see if there is areas for improvement.

    Pros

    Great team, open work environment. Dynamic work environment.

    Cons

    Top down driven company. All direction comes from Denver. Internally focused in the extreme. Lofty sales goals seem to be unattainable even in best of market conditions.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldn't take it anyway.

  2. Good company, good colleagues, good pay but horrible workload and no work/life balance

    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 Management

    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.
