Pros

I have worked at Arrow for a little over 2 years and have nothing but great things to say about this company. Great work environment, talented people producing great signs and structures. You will be expected to perform to a high level of craftsmanship/pride in your work at a fast pace, If this is your skill set then you will fit right in.

Cons

Tight deadlines is about it.

Advice to Management

Let people do there jobs.

    Pros

    Arrow is a well known signage company and has a good reputation in the industry. Most of the employees are a real pleasure to work with and have a lot to teach people who are just starting out in the signage industry. The work produced by the people who design, engineer, build and install the custom signage is stellar. It's great to see evidence of all their efforts prominently displayed around the Bay area.

    Cons

    Executives only care about dollar signs and will only acknowledge and give pay increases to select people who they see as bringing in revenue. They ignore the efforts of the support staff (and grossly under pay them), even though most of them work brutal hours and weekends to keep on top of the work load. There's a monumental amount of paperwork to be handled because they haven't upgraded any systems past what seems like the late 1980's.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge ALL of your employees. Take a closer look at the work that everyone does, not just the sales people and the people who's pay is included in the contract amounts. Actually upgrade the company systems, don't just talk about it. Realize that yelling and screaming at people doesn't produce loyalty...it just makes people afraid to approach you.

  2. Stressful

    Pros

    Arrow has a large presence in the signage industry, and within the Bay Area. They can handle any large scale and custom signage project. You can grow within the company, if you put in the time. If you need a job and fit their mold, they will pay you money.

    Cons

    There is a complete lack of vision at Arrow. Their tunnel vision shoves them down one road of operation, large scale custom sign projects. They haven't kept up with any technology advances, thus the lack of an ERP system and amount of paperwork generated within the company to complete a simple task is mind-numbing. The sad part is I don't see it ever changing, as long as the current ownership is in place. There is complete lack of trust at Arrow between upper management/ownership and their employees, which kind of ties into previous comments on the company. Everybody is afraid to make decisions because only a few people are able to even carry out decisions. Everything within the company is dictated by ownership....everything.

    Advice to Management

    See above....its pretty clear what needs to happen to keep good employees.
