    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time

    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.

    Great people, friendly environment. The headquarters were very open and there are multiple locations in the area so you get opportunities to work with all departments

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

    Pros

    - Work friendly environment
    - Collaborative work culture
    - Easy access to everyone

    Cons

    There no cons , which i could observe in the firm. It is an enormous firm with a small organization kind of feel. And that is what I liked about Arrow very much.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the initiative of the efforts the organization takes to invest in new talent

    Great time off benefits and great management. Nice and clean environment. Company strides to be the best and always willing to improve.

    Cons

    Nothing really bad to say about the company. Insurance isn't that well anymore since Obama care took effect. Insurance premiums are a lot higher. That's everywhere though.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Top level partnerships with industry leading manufacturers - makes for great leveraging and pricing. Lots of opportunities to win.

    Cons

    Lots of business development. Team is green. Separation in team. Management plays favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Train your sales team rather than giving them a generic sales book and expecting them to close.

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    There really isnt anything positive about the company. They just did a pay increase and they bumped me up to just .5 cents above what new people will be making coming in the door. If you ask employees how they feel about the company they will tell you that they feel stuck and they have no morale.

    Cons

    Downsides are you give them 5 years and after they do a pay increase they bump you just a couple of cents over new hire in rates. Not fair to us veterans. Please look else where for a job stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Change your attitude treat us like we matter. We are tired of being treated like slaves.

    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
