    I worked at Arrow Electronics (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you're good, you can run your own desk without being bugged too much by Management.
    Compensation is good if you happen to be coming off a bad year.

    Cons

    If you're coming off a good year, your budgeted to not make as much the next.
    If you make too much money, you're expedable.
    Best to just make budget, and not to exceed plan or you have a target on your back as the company can save good money by letting you go. All it takes is one strategic, low Employee Review, and you're toast regardless of your contribution to revenue and the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, your best sales people today are your best hope for a successful tomorrow.. Don't lay 'em off just because they had a good year and you need to save some $$.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Good port in a storm during a tough economic time, if you don't mind working very late and very hard while being treated badly.

    Cons

    This company doesn't know what a process is. The technology is outdated (ironic for a tech company) and everything is a haphazard, hodgepodged mess. Lots of turnover, but also lots of people who've only been in this industry and have a very skewed idea about the way most corporations work. Backwards and stuck in the 50s. Literally no career ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees like crap. Don't lay them off the minute the numbers are down. Don't give yourselves big exec raises when you don't give them to employees. Have an actual culture.
