    Pros

    This is tough to come up with. The pay is good as are the benefits, although the benefits contract each year. Denver is a nice place to live.

    Cons

    The only plan management has to react to market share loss and declining profitability is cut, cut, cut. Lower level management treats employees well, but the CEO is a ranter and raver and that style is rubbing off on the rest of senior management. There is no leadership or long term plan.

    Advice to Management

    Other than to get a new CEO, I'm not sure what management can do. The longer term outlook for Arrow is not bright. However Arrow could ride the decline down much more effectively by picking a business model - i.e., low cost provider or best customer service - and sticking to it. Helter Skelter is't the answer.
