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

    Pros

    Arrow is a Global Company distributing value added electronics across the world. They are based in Englewood Colorado. They had started from humble beginnings and fought through hard times and are now the largest company of its kind.
    18 years ago I was privileged enough to be apart of this growth and am proud to be apart of it. Great teams and co-workers made it what it is today.

    Cons

    Although in my department I still get to work with great people but the company as a whole is no longer the close knit company that I felt early in my career but that comes with the times and with growth. It is now Big Corporate and the closeness or the personal touch has gone. I am sorry to see that go.

    Advice to Management

    Stay personal to your people. They are not only assets but humans too. Don't let Big Corporate diminish that.

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Laid back for the most part and good management support structure. Great communication with employees about company directive and personal performance.

    Cons

    Demand is much higher than supply currently in the electronic components industry, leading to some stress with accounts. Very competitive market as well.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to handle the increasing amount of accounts Arrow is acquiring. Move to a bigger building as well.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, Flexible Hours, Onsite Gym is very nice

    Cons

    Layoffs at least twice a year, which led to employees being overworked and doing multiple roles. They won't give you more than a 2-3% raise no matter how good your performance is or how much you do.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the value in your employees, when morale dropped there was no attempt at keeping people or being transparent about why layoffs were happening. This led to many more employees leaving for new opportunities.
