Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They paid well at the time, but then so did everybody in the 90s.

Cons

They hire and fire at will. They massively expanded in Englewood, then panicked because they discovered Westerners have opinions (unlike Melville robots) and then conduct massive layoffs. They cancel Christmas bonuses because they don't want people to get used to it.

Advice to Management

Grow a pair. Don't fire people for having opinions. Don't assume that all Westerners are lazy bums because they disapprove of your management decisions. Don't freak out when laying off people and have security eyeball people as they get their things.

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is very employee focused with great benefits and plans. The career opportunity is endless

    Cons

    The company is very large so there is more competition for advancement as well as rules about roles/responsibilities. More personal flexibility would be well received

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive salary until they lay you off.

    Cons

    Too many acquistions in too short a time have caused major problems. Their solution to short term economic slow down is to do massive lay offs of very experienced sales and admin staff. They are now consolidating acquistoins into the BORG.

    Advice to Management

    Stop destroying peoples lives with your short term operating income fixes to keep your executive comp levels high.
