    Growth within comany, allowed to move to different interdepartmental areas
    Room for relocation with US or global offices

    Cons

    No work/life balance
    Too much work, too little time, not enough resources
    Salary not competitive for a big company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand what is not working among operations. Listen to managers under the director level. Take care of the employees. I have experienced working at Arrow pre the current CFO and work/life balance and employee benefits were wonderful.

    Arrow Electronics gives various opportunities of practice enhancing or sharpening one's knowledge. It also offers over times increasing salaries or tips.

    Too many sources of instruction causing not only workers to be stressful, and frustrated., but also work itself to boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All advices I can give to the Arrow Electronics management can be summarized by just finding a good administration or organization susceptible to help employees perform their respective tasks without stress and frustration

    Pros

    Long term employee, good salary, great benefits. Cutting edge of up and coming business technologies (internet marketing, IoT, television commercials.) Sound business strategies, fair to employees.

    Cons

    Part of a large culture, lots of inexperienced new people makes it difficult to get things completed at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing

    Pros

    Good health insurance and a cafeteria if you work in "building 1".

    Cons

    Mgmt is bottom of the rung. Many have no education and have mastered office politics in a bad way to get where they are at. No advancement opportunities overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some real management classes. You are no longer in high school. When you say you're going to do xxx, actually do it and follow through.

    Pros

    I worked with CDW and NetApp and it was a great experience. the culture and the team was a combination of work hard and play hard. I was given the freedom to work on an outside project the help both Arrow and NetApp manage the channel better.

    Cons

    Team changes which i guess was nature of channel with people cycling in and out of various manufactures and/partners.
