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

Pros

Cutting edge experiences in most fields, with unusual freedom to innovate or research and adopt best practices.

Cons

You must be devoted to the company and travel schedules can be grueling. As a single person "with no ties / home responsibilities" I was given what I felt to be an unfair proportion of the work involving travel vs colleagues who had spouses / family. I believe that living single is often more difficult because you don't have someone to take help out with life responsibilities!

Advice to Management

Think it through! Just because I don't have kids doesn't mean that I shouldn't have a life outside of work!

    We're sorry to hear that you feel expendable at Arrow, which is never something we want any of our employees to feel. Without exact knowledge into your specific situation, it would be hard to know... More

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Great management - those in charge know their jobs inside and out. Always given the tools necessary to complete the job. Great opportunity for growth at the corporate level for those with initiative. Great values and forward thinking is apparent.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities limited at local branches, restructuring is disruptive (hopefully this is only temporary)

    Advice to Management

    When making large changes to internal structure, be sure to implement enough time for new recruits to get trained and up to speed.
