    I worked at Arrow Electronics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A great company to work for. Had tons of fun interning there in summer of 2016. Management was always helpful and there are lots of opportunities to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Could be better compensation, but it is competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in young professionals. It creates a culture that people respect and appreciate! Great job.

    Pros

    they provide evening snacks at 7 pm

    Cons

    Managers /leads takes himself credit of good work , for any issues or problem they will put blame on team .
    they never follows time - but remind team member to be present in office for 9 hours.
    they make long term planning and plotting to promote their favourite member and discourage and demotivate other non favourite team member.
    They will not say any word even if their favorite member commits blunder , but will escalate to whole world if any minor mistake is done by non favourite member.
    they do lots of partiality in every thing.
    they never appreciate even if excellent work done by non favorite member , they like feet touching ppl

    Advice to Management

    to closely monitor manager and keep track of them , due to this behavior of managers , all good resource will move out of company.

    Pros

    Great vacation time, close to DTC and nice gym on-site.

    Cons

    Executive Management doesn't know what work the staff does daily. They live in the clouds and believe that barking orders and threatening to fire people will motivate them. People want out. They pay most staff on at 70% / 30% pay plan so that they don't have to pay the full compensation. They create unobtainable budgets so reaching the incentive plan is beyond difficult. However, the executives are paid well and on time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the power struggle. Do your job and stop with the smear campaigns. There are also so many new outside hire VPs that it will be challenging for Arrow to succeed because it's stepping on it's own toes.
