    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Decent benefits and no pressure environment compared to that of my previous manufacturing background. Pay is also competitive along with yearly average merit increase of 3%. Personally I had nothing but positive experience throughout my stay although I would like to expose few observations of arrow that the company could do better in Cons/management advise portion.

    Cons

    Poor healthcare benefits with deduction upto $200 per pay check for family. Management culture run by perception and not by actual deliverables of employee on their roles and responsibilities. For a fortune 150 company, its a shame that they do have a development program attracting young talents plus any leadership development programs for developing future leaders of organisation within the org. Perhaps one reason would be is that at one point, arrow decided not to invest on education of employees after recession. 2009 Long term employees of Arrow who have spent 20/30/40 years haven't seen another fortune 110 company nor ever worked for a fortune 110 company and average of 3.0 rating in glass door usually comes from them because of their stability and in other words ignorance.

    Pros

    This is a good company to work at. The company provides good benefits about par with all large companies.

    Cons

    They grow by acquiring smaller companies which can lead to a lot of challenges incorporating the smaller company into the parent. Communication across the company can be fragmented.

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is decent, and I’ve gotten some good exposure, but that’s due to me being on a small team.

    Cons

    During the Coronavirus, we’ve seen tech companies all over giving their employees the ability to work remote until after the first of the year. These companies are changing the way they do things to protect the health and well-being of their staff. Arrow, from the very beginning, has cared more about the best interest of Arrow and nothing more. They attempted to force employees back into the office before the local stay at home was even lifted. This is rumored to have been shut down by the state. Ever since this crisis started, it’s been obvious what Arrow’s leadership actually cares about and it isn’t their staff.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, just wish Arrow would appreciate the hard work they all do to line the executive pockets.

    Cons

    After many years in my current position, I’ve discovered my current salary is about the same as most entry level positions for similar jobs in the area. Probably my fault for sticking around so long. I take pride in my work, and feel loyalty to a company after expending so much time and energy doing the best job I can to maintain quality reporting and numbers. They nixed any merit increases this year, blaming it on the COVID crisis. But hey, at least we still have a job, right? It’s pathetic.
