    Pros

    3 weeks vacation within the first year. At times middle management tries to make things better but corporate management doesn't seem to care about their employees that are making the money for the company.

    Cons

    Required to work on some holidays. Can be dirty work. Hard to get the proper tools needed to do the job. Low wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees that work on the production floor. Without them you wouldn't have a company.

    Former Employee - Material Planner in Englewood, CO (US)

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There were good departments to be in-but I wasn't in one. Arrow offered great time off-3 weeks to start-plus decent sick and personal time.

    Cons

    Low Pay, Bad Management. They eliminate positions, and expect the people who were left to pick up the workload. So much stress--I was miserable in this job for two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent-I know that there are great places to be in Arrow, just not where I was. Try to be realistic on people and how much they can handle. Offer career mentors and growth-encourage hiring from within!

    Pros

    Pay is in line with industry average however not sure how long this will last . new redesigned offices are a fry cry from the old mice infested digs . parking has improved. Free coffee !

    Cons

    Long hours . Zero work life balance . Sales driven culture . if you are not in Sales you are not worth anything . Severe emphasis on Cost Cutting . Little to no respect for the minions who make this company tick. Rampant Favoritism and no emphasis on training and improving employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your teams to deliver. micromanaging is not effective management . Think about your employees who actually make this company great . Work life balance is a necessity not a privilege . Check to see if your teams are struggling . managing out is not as effective as improving the resources you have .

    Pros

    Nice plan for "Five years out" . lots of opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    Poor pay , long hours, no work/home balance, revolving door mgmt , poor recognition in Finance, lack of knowledgeable leadership due to mgmt moving on to better paying positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a bit more on our cost of living...the pay isnt enough for the demographics. , create a better work/home balance, take notice of internal referrals for open job requisitions - we wouldn't refer someone we couldn't depend on.
