No opinion of CEO

Pros

Intelligent people, good management. Decent pay. Promotion is possible

Cons

Company likes to buy other companies, than let a bunch of people go......they do it over and over

Some cronyism in the way people get promoted, your boss has to really like you, and sometimes the best do not get the promotions.

Advice to Management

You are creating your own morale problems

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, great Denver location, lower levels within Arrow are friendly and cordial. Can't really thing of any other good things.

    Cons

    Upper management is arrogant, undisciplined, and brutal, and it flows freely downhill. No sign of a cogent strategy to address a broken business plan. Employees take the brunt of disappointing quarterly results in the form of layoffs. Other than that - its great!

    Advice to Management

    At this point I really don't know. Perhaps seek a merger with one of Arrow's more nimble competitors. Don't assume that continual layoffs are a strategy.

    "Decent location and place to work if you are already in Colorado, but I wouldn't relocate to work here."

    Pros

    Location is right off the highway, employees are very friendly (but isn't everyone in Colorado??), currently improving technology, lots of new employees - so you won't feel alone.

    Cons

    Pay is fairly low unless you come in at Directors level or above. Benefits are just okay. Management will fire/layoff employees easily - most people are new and now I know why. NO DIVERSITY in upper management, nor does the company care. No bells & whistles (well depends on which building they stick you in) no gym, no cafeteria, no on-campus events/guest speakers. Managers track everything; vacation, sick time, holidays..you name it - not flexible at all.

    Advice to Management

    More onsite training/lectures for employees (no more web-based training). Establish diversity initiatives. Pay people what they are worth. Implement flexible work schedules.
