    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its a job. Not an adventure................

    Cons

    Medical and dental insurance is way too expensive for families. Company makes record profits but doesnt reward employees for the job done. Warehouse and programming operators pay is not a liveable wage. Company keeps buying competitors but claims broke - no raises. When there are raises theyre not worth the paperwork and time to do..........Costs more to administer. Performance reviews must meet a bell curve. Therefore employees are not measured and ranked/rewarded on their actual individual performance.HR and uper management makes sup's and mgr's lower scores every EPR. Reno HR has even lowered scores after supervisors submit with discussion after the fact which is pointless since theyre already turned into corp.Company doesnt care about its people.,,,,,,,will be released 1 day over FMLA even if DR still has you not ready to return. Your length of employment doesnt matter...........youre out! Too much over paid P4 management not enough Sups., Leads, and operators. Management needs to be production oriented and not engineering.

    Advice to Management

    Too much over paid P4 management not enough Sups., Leads, and operators. Management needs to be production oriented and not engineers. Programming needs to charge for expedites and not accept the high number of expedites. Sales expedites because they can. This wreaks havoc with FIFO of order. Make capital investment in fully optioned equipment (not half assed) and adapters so youre not manually running orders. Automation is cost effective. Manual is an operational expense/loss. Youve eliminated some of the engineer P4 management. You still have a manager that is an engineer that needs to go. He is a school instructor and hires his students. Engineering background is an unneccesary expense. You need production /manufacturing management experience. Not to be overpaying for engineering backgrounds. Too much of a click in the warehouse management which inhibits the ability to transfer and career opportunities. Programming operators should be paid more than a warehouse picker. Its a different skill set.

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

    Pros

    Good experiences, great network, they like to buy companies

    Cons

    Low salaries, overburdened in processes, as soon as they buy a company they let go of most of the people that business comes with no matter who you are or what you bring to the table

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees before you care about how much is going into your pocket
