    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company with what appears to be many opportunities; however it's not as it seems. The dept makes all the difference in the world.

    Cons

    It's a matter of who you know vs what you know. Management is not honest nor forthcoming with important information.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother, it's too entrenched to change now.

    Pros

    Decent benefits

    Pay was nice

    Friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Work numbers and expectations for warehouse employees are unrealistic

    Never given important information on various tasks or updates to procedures in a timely which lead making avoidable mistakes

    Punished for things that weren't our fault

    And floor management never took our complaints of workload issues seriously and played favorites when it came to enforcing rules and punishments.

    High turnover you'd be lucky to see the same person working next to you for more than a day

    Inconsistent work patterns never knew what I'd be doing every day which made hard to develop an efficient work system

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and willing to work with employees instead giving unreasonable workloads an then punishing staff for being unable to meet those goals.

    "Contract worker"

    Pros

    Nice people although they didn't take time to get to know you in order to form any sort of relationship. No team building.

    Cons

    Absolutely no supervision by manager over staff. One employee did whatever she felt like even though it duplicated or changed other's work (including mine at one point.) Other co-workers said they couldn't do anything about this phenomenon as manager would not manage. I had absolutely nothing to do. There was zero planning on what my duties would be. Training consisted of reviewing videos and pdfs that were not applicable to the business unit I was in and were more of an overview rather than an actual demonstration of how to navigate system. I do not recommend accepting a job as a contractor at Arrow. I left a job I enjoyed because Arrow was willing to pay more and was supposedly contract to hire.

    Advice to Management

    I advise management to ensure that lower level managers are hiring based on need versus a desire to grow their staff. I advise management to create surveys, if they aren't any, so employees can evaluate their managers performance.
