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

    Strategy to expand beyond normal distribution.

    Cons

    Bell curved employee annual reviews...which are used to give performance raises.
    Work from home flexibility non existent at this location, very much a corporate office mentality.
    Integration of purchased companies lacking.
    UNITY project (one global system) now 3 years and millions of dollars past due.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Millions spent on branding and commercials that are seen ... Where? Employee town halls? The ROI appears small.
    No transparency...do as I say not as I do atmosphere. IE no trips, expenses, but exceptions are made daily. Stop putting out mandates and immediately providing work arounds. It's either yes or no.
    Sabbaticals and ESOP ended for 'normal' employees. No explanation if ESOP ended for the chairman and CEO and balance of the board of directors.
    Retain good talent and pay market value. Rate managers on their churn, including HR managers.
