    Need hold people accountable for not doing what they are supposed to do, treat people fairly, fight for your employees in stead of having the "I give up" attitude...it's frustrating who are actually there to work and do well .

    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
