Pros

Arrow is a well known signage company and has a good reputation in the industry. Most of the employees are a real pleasure to work with and have a lot to teach people who are just starting out in the signage industry. The work produced by the people who design, engineer, build and install the custom signage is stellar. It's great to see evidence of all their efforts prominently displayed around the Bay area.

Cons

Executives only care about dollar signs and will only acknowledge and give pay increases to select people who they see as bringing in revenue. They ignore the efforts of the support staff (and grossly under pay them), even though most of them work brutal hours and weekends to keep on top of the work load. There's a monumental amount of paperwork to be handled because they haven't upgraded any systems past what seems like the late 1980's.

Advice to Management

Acknowledge ALL of your employees. Take a closer look at the work that everyone does, not just the sales people and the people who's pay is included in the contract amounts. Actually upgrade the company systems, don't just talk about it. Realize that yelling and screaming at people doesn't produce loyalty...it just makes people afraid to approach you.

    Fellow employees wonderful to work with and take time to teach. They all work above and beyond.

    Superiors expect more and more and show no appreciation. they don't care about you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your long time employees and value them. Instead of pounding them down all the time, you need to show some appreciation.

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. This is my first job out of college and I’ve been given many opportunities to learn and grow within the company. In order to be successful at Arrow Sign, it’s essential to come to work with a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and the ability to learn in a fast paced environment. Administration encourages exploration. They would rather see someone grow and be happy in different areas within the company than leave all together. Hard work will take you a long way here.

    Cons

    Located in a rough area in Oakland. A fair amount of paperwork and lengthy job processes, but there’s always a good method to the madness.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to come to work with positive attitudes. Treat each individual with respect, regardless of position. Never forget to acknowledge the employees that show up and work hard to represent the company.
