    Pros

    Five year ago, I joint the company with my wife..at that time, management of company is good and helpful.. supervisor are good...

    Cons

    Day by day company's management standard going down.. earlier hard worker and punctual employee get promotion.. who has good productivity, perfect attendance get promotion... and now, they change standard.. lazy people get good promotion. Minority people get trouble... supervisor favor their country's people... and that's while employee not stay in company... talk their language...

    Advice to Management

    Be good for hard worker.. follow rules as per books.. give promotion to harder... punctual employee...

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    The company has hired good people with a lot of knowledge.

    Cons

    Management and leadership don't get it. A lot of "puffed up" egos, especially in ECS. Will drop you like a hot potato even if you are a high quality employee with good ratings and no write ups.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more coaching and support to your employees.

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

    Pros

    The company provides a gym, with daily yoga and workout classes that are free. The company allows flexible hours during the summer.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for collaboration, innovation, or even suggestions from employees. They are simply expected to do what they are told. This was not a good fit for me, because I wanted to help them improve their processes (specifically, improve my own efficiency) but was faced with violent and aggressive disapproval for any changes I wanted to make in my own daily process.

    Advice to Management

    Trusting your employees will empower them and create a stronger culture, while making your teams more efficient and effective. You preach that innovation and advancement are your cornerstones, but won't allow employees to make minute changes to their own processes that would create more efficiencies in their role.

    Pros

    With a lack of training you can sometimes learn a lot through trial and error.

    Big corporation where the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Not great pay for the work that was being done.

    Pros

    Lot of smart people in the branch offices. Lot of smart engineering support for the sales reps

    Cons

    Top Heavy with VPs and Directors that have lost touch with the customer base, spend all their time reporting up (on other people's work) and are in their own little worlds (no consistency across territories in reporting or expectations). Old boy type of company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people in the field. Get rid of 50% of your VPs and Directors Trust the folks on the front lines.

    Pros

    Their schedule for 1st shift employees

    Cons

    Lousy management
    Lack of communication
    This place still runs like it's the 60s, management and senior employees have extreme bias and condescending attitudes and outlook, HR is a joke, it consist of one employee that handles an entire department, incidents aren't handled in a professional manner, extremely underpaid and don't even dare to voice it to management because you'll be called out and labeled as having no work ethic because of your upbringing or having some type of mental illness, extremely bias and offensive remark when 70 percent of your staff are of color and you're white, there's no compromising when it comes to the needs/ wants of employees to feel comfortable or confident working for them, it's 'you're going to do this because I said so' majority of employees are temp to hire but many don't stay long, during my final week my supervisor asked me why I was leaving and I didn't even care to explain myself to him, I was a direct hire and only after two weeks of being there knew this place is a complete dead end, but I was desperate, I needed some source of income in which I have yet to receive my last two paychecks from this place, word of advice to any looking for a place of employment in means to be able to take care of themselves or their families, look elsewhere
