    Pros

    They just raised their minimum wage to 14 dollars an hour.

    Cons

    For most people the production numbers are not easily met, and if you do met the numbers you will most likely get too many errors. Either way you will find yourself on a write up.

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    There are a few smart folks scattered about the company.

    Cons

    Directors and VPs suffer from acute short-termism. Most business decisions are made with an eye towards the next earnings report rather than as part of a larger long-term strategy.

    The key to getting promoted is to suck up to directors and VPs. Hard work and ingenuity comes a far second to office politics as a way to get ahead. This results in mediocre and subpar employees at the manager and director level.

    Advice to Management

    Think long term.
