    I worked at Arrow Electronics (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great training program. They teach you a lot about navigating the sales cycle, and provide a significant amount of technical electronics training. Very useful for the software / tech industry in general

    Cons

    Very low base pay for entry level positions. Decent commission structure but low margins hurt this. As a distributor you are constantly battling between the customer and the supplier to get your cut.
    Need to build your own account base from the ground up. Don't expect a lot of help here

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

    Pros

    AIS is part of the larger Arrow Group
    Large Line Card

    Cons

    AIS charter is to offer true ingenuity and solutions but they are stuck with a distributor mentality relying on TIER1 suppliers to steer the ship. Backwards sales trends are resulting in loss of key talent through layoffs and resignation.

    Advice to Management

    Arrow has spent a lot of money for acquisition of companies. If it is not too late, release this group from the boredom of a Tier1 distribution dictate and allow innovation and creativity to flourish.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None really, the work is extremely boring and the pay is very weak. Despite hitting all my "numbers" and asking for raises multiple times over the course of my 3 year tenure with Arrow I never recieved a penny more in pay. My ending salary was exactly the same my starting salary.

    Cons

    Everything about working here sucks. Steer clear! Definitely don't apply for any buying or quoting positions.

    Advice to Management

    Resign and pay your employees what they're worth.

    Solid place to work, good people working hard to adapt to changing markets
    Excellent Corporate Brand in the market

    Cons

    Geographically dispersed and no real social culture.
