    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Arrow is an enormous company with amazing opportunities at their Corporate office in Denver (Englewood). As a Product Manager, you get to experience a little bit of everything (sales, operations, customer service, inventory). The position is a very good launching point for something else internally if you choose to do so. You technically only need to be at your position a year before you apply for anything else, but I suggest you give it more time - 2 or 3 years - and become an expert in the industry/technology before moving up.

    Cons

    Very fast paced and demanding (although I'm the type that appreciates that aspect). Sometimes it can become monotonous, but honestly, name a job that isn't from time to time. The "training" is more of a baptism by fire, but your teammates understand this and are SO very helpful - and willing to help :-)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Experience is definitely something to consider, but personalities and skill sets are too. Sometimes I think management rushes the hiring process to fill a gap, when it would be better to wait for a better team fit.

    Negotiation Details
    Hired through temp agency -- not much negotiation. I started at $17 hr -- but I do know thought that mother employee (who took forever to train and was one dimensional) was hired in at $3 more an hour than I was --- that was upsetting.
