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

Pros

Good compensation, independent work environment, challenging and satisfying work. Excellent mamnagement, and the company cares about people, recognizing that people do make a difference. This leads to competitive advantage, which adds to growth and success.

Cons

The macro environment in this industry is changing, causing the company to have to change with it. It is a very competitive, tough environment now, where excellence callot be rewarded as well as before. Not the company's fault, it is just that the industry is changing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is doing a great job managing change and balancing success, profit and staff. I would not know how to do it better.

    Pros

    The people are wonderful, decent pay, decent benefits but not worth the hell you will go thru.

    Cons

    Management is abusive. Moral in past five years has gone from great to unbearable. Everyone wants out but all long term employees are so unhappy that they are waiting for their packages. Rumours are they are closing this branch on the electronics side. Computer side is great family Atomsphere because they are run by good management. It really is a shame that the management has done this to a wonderful branch/company...not the same as the old Steve Kaufman days when it truly was a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From the top down, need to change. Worst management team I have ever encountered in my life....corrupt. Listen to the people....they are telling you the truth. Take action before it is too late. You already are a joke in the industry thanks to the last 5 years of corrupt management.

    Since the company moved the corporate office to Denver there's a lot of senior people being laid off and replaced by less experiences people that they are paying less
