      ** DO NOT BELIVE THE POSITIVE REVIEWS **

      Pros

      Great employees who are treated like trash

      Cons

      Too bad the company doesn’t give a rats behind about the employees. No raises, crappy benefits, and all they seem to be concerned with at this point is having bodies in an office. Really quite pathetic that they spew “ Five Years Out” when they are at least decade behind the eight ball. Do not believe the positive reviews as they are probably fake accounts made by HR or whoever to skew Mike Longs approval rating. It’s a joke.

      Good Learning Experience Beware of Layoffs and Changing Goals

      Pros

      Salary, Work-Life balance, subsidized cafeteria, nice big gyms both buildings. Very nice and friendly coworkers. Not too high pressure. Good place to go to learn the distributor model and get overall experience on many different products.

      Cons

      There have been many layoffs during the 10 years I have been with the company. Leadership is a revolving door and as a result goals are constantly changing even mid-year. If your compensation is partly dependent upon achieving goals keep that in mind, suggest budgeting based on the fixed part of your pay to avoid problems. Lots of office politics. If your job can be off-shored it probably will be.

      Pros

      Job security and strong management

      If you’re in the upper management you’re golden. Otherwise it’s hard to crack in

      Arrow, where you're just a number and a cost center.

      Pros

      Relaxed work environment, it's just distribution, BUT.... BUT..... everyone is skating by until the division take a tank because it's not really a sales organization because the sales team doesn't really "SELL" anything... it's more of a program and customer service team, yet quotas and sales goals are assigned and leveraged plans are used as money grab by desperate leadership trying to save their bottom line performance. It's quite the circus their lately... titanic at best, slowly sinking... writing is on the walls. Avoid joining now, because you wouldn't buy a stock as it's crashing, would you?

      Cons

      Terrible leadership, no upward mobility, they claim people are their best assets but that's not true. Pompous and stagnant/stale leadership. All VPs and above have been there for 20+ years, no fresh perspectives, like a bunch of people in a room with their own farts, can't smell how bad it's become. Sales team is on a major decline and there are desperate money grabs through compensation cuts and adjustments. Don't join ECS if you want a healthy career.

      Pros

      Great co-workers. Pleasant people. Nice offices with cafeteria, gym, and benefits like an affordable bus pass and matching 401k.

      Cons

      Arrow is a very big, publicly traded company that can make sweeping decisions. The CEO has the goal to grow quarter over quarter - which means layoffs, or “Cost Saving Initiatives” are pretty regular. It can also mean the end of a quarter might be a mad dash with new goals to hit.

      Pros

      Very innovative and industry leading. Very smart people working here. Opportunity to move up in career.

      Cons

      Lack of overall company culture. Its very siloed. Moving up in the company can be who you know, but its nothing far from most large companies.

      Pros

      Good benefits, not irregularities with getting paid on time, the potential for growth if willing to move.

      Cons

      Can get lost in the crowd (large company), there can be a lot of red tape at times.
