Pros

There are problems at Arrow, but things are not as bad as some of the posters indicate. While it is unlikely that Arrow will regain its once dominate position in the market, if you keep your head down and work hard, you will probably survive. Pay and benefits are probably as good or better than most in the Colorado market.

Cons

I have to admit it isn't a growing, prospering company; and that can make working conditions difficult at times.

Advice to Management

Make sure you retain your skilled, experienced employees so you'll be able to take advantage of the market upturn - if it ever comes!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I'm having a hard time thinking of any. If you want to stay in Denver, and most of us do, it's a job. Benefits and pay a relatively good - if you don't get laid off. I doubt if I'll be here in 2-3 years.

    Cons

    Unstable, deteriorating market position. Cutting cost seems to be the only strategy management can come up with.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a new strategy or sell out to Avnet.

    Pros

    Having a job in this bad economy.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    They need to take back all the positions that were outsourced to India.
    Instead of laying off the workers, they need to get rid of the multiple layers of middle management.
