I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There is a lot of opportunity to take on projects that allow you to learn new things. Always something happening and changing. Company is in a state of evolution and very innovative with the roll out of the new brand. The company is growing very rapidly and has managed to come out on top in spite of challenging financial and economical climates.

Cons

Conservative company with conservative values around dress, and culture. If you want to grow in the company you have to pursue it and get it, it won't be handed to you. Along with the growth come the challenges of adapting to new ways of having to do business both internally and externally.

Advice to Management

Appreciate employees, feeling values is priceless. No matter how busy things are, every manager should take the time to let their employees know they care and appreciate their efforts.
