    Fairly easy to understand. If you are efficient you can get your job done in a couple hours.

    Pros

    Fast paced, Bonuses, Air conditioned, Good starting pay, Flexible schedules

    Cons

    Management, Productivity tracking is inaccurate, Hard work is punished and laziness is rewarded, Favoritism,

    Advice to Management

    Don't punish your hard workers by putting them in Pick Running while plenty of lazy employees stand around talking who would be perfect for the Pick Running position. Take suggestions or maybe even the time to listen to the employees, you might learn something from people who actually do the grunt work. Maybe put people in positions that want to be in them instead of putting people who hate it and are looking for another job as a result while keeping people out of that position they want.

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work from home, nice building, gym, next to light rail.

    Cons

    Management cares more about jumping through the regular insane flaming hoops partners demand than their employees. Wfh is an offered perk in some departments, but get ready to put in blood sweat and tears to earn it with any consistency. Hostile peer behavior is tolerated as long as the work gets done. Arrow is only concerned about their image as long as it can impact partners and customers. Internal image be damned. Those who have been employed at Arrow 10 years + are granted higher level positions regardless of Pertinent knowledge to the role or management skills. If you’ve endured the Arrow ways or played the corporate games long enough, they’ll promote.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to all your teams and staff, not just what you hear via middle management. Satisfaction surveys could go a long way...

    Pros

    Location, company is competitive in the industry, on-site cafeteria and gym. All employees have nice cubes. Pay is good, benefits are average

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about their employees , the work environment and culture is bad. Lacks teamwork, co-workers can be difficult to trust and many are unfriendly.. Poor systems and there are no documented processes to fall back on. Employees are treated like a number and easily replaceable. They preach employee appreciation, but its only lip service.

    Advice to Management

    Improve management, encourage teamwork and better communications. Show more loyalty to your employees. Improve the systems, and reports. Promote a better work environment. Nothing worse than hearing about lay offs in the rumor mill. Improve communications, people enjoy being part of a good team,.

    Pros

    Arrow Electronics has a lot of budding potential

    Cons

    The management does not put a focus on people. This has driven the culture in a negative direction and is crushing the innovation and creativity of the team members.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and trust the strength of the team. Lead your team by being visionary and inspiring leaders, not command and control/micromanaging.
