    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.

    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.
