    I worked at Arrow Electronics

    Pros

    Loved working here and miss the coworkers who became such close friends. Intern program really gave me a jump in my career

    Cons

    I really don’t have any cons. Maybe review your intern to full time comp strategy. Interns are suppose to be the “future of Arrow”

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big, well known company within Colorado and across the globe. Work life balance was great and made working there much easier - depending upon the group you work with and who your manager is. Good colleagues and was able to travel in specific role. Looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    Big company... your job is expendable and can be at the mercy of others mistakes. Those "others' being people you won't work with and can make HUGE mistakes that lead to layoffs, management change, organization change, and cost cutting.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics

    Pros

    Vacation and sick time benefits

    Cons

    No stability, too many layoffs

    Advice to Management

    Wake up!! Your customers all hate you..instead of laying off people you need to employ more..the people you work to death cannot keep up with the work load. In order to keep cstomers happy you need to be able to respond to them quickly, ship on time and quote faster..this is not the case and you all know it. Oracle was a HUGE mistake, what was supposed to make everyone's work easier has made it A LOT harder. No one can...

    "Some perks - but no raises - constant layoffs"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Compensation and Benefits
    Former Employee - Inside Sales 

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    People, casual dress, lunches, products are good... cubicles at least have some walls, nice work environment... can learn about industry and get some experience (not a place to stay long term).

    Cons

    Constant layoffs and lack of pay increases - since I left, all my managers were laid off or quit, co-workers laid off or left to get more pay. Upper mgmt too disconnected and training is just okay.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very few. There are many good people to work with, and compensation was above average.

    Cons

    People are treated as a number (headcount or $, you pick). Core values implemented years ago are not being followed by upper management. There is a severe lack of integrity. The Employee Performance Review is a joke. Your immediate manager rates you, but then the ratings are changed by others who have had no interaction with you throughout the year, just to keep within the acceptable range that was handed down from...

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of the sand! Value your employees, they are your most important assets. Re-instate some core values and enforce them from the top on down. Integrity needs to be restored. Get rid of the bully management mentality and start treating all of your people with the respect that they deserve.

    Great location, good pay, good hours

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities even if your qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees more support out side hiring isn't the answer when you have well qualified employees already working for you.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Vanguard 401(k), unlimited vacation, parking garage.

    Cons

    The culture at Arrow Digital is about as toxic as it gets. If you're into whispering and gossiping, this is the place for you! Onsite benefits like workout facilities are pretty useless for some teams because other teammates are noticing if you're not at your desk and reporting the "unexcused absence" up the chain. This is encouraged by management. Arrow Digital Management is spinning its wheels, providing no strategic...
