"Don't believe what you read on this site. Most finance employees make less than 37K a year, with an average of 30 years experience in their jobs, we can't afford to live in the state of Colorado anymore, most finance employees don't qualify to rent a 1 bdrm apt. But, our mgmt brags about being the largest publicly traded company, builds multi-million race cars for paraplegic driver and our CEO salary is amongst the highest in the industry. Hmmm."

"Support, training, and professional development are non-existent at Arrow. Managers do not effectively communicate expectations to employees and change policies and procedures frequently. Lack of cohesive vision contributes to a chaotic and ineffective work climate. Office politics are VICIOUS and RAMPANT. You will be spied on and your phone/computer use will be monitored daily."

"Great place to work with flexible hours. Pressure can mount but for someone that welcomes pressure and overcoming obstacles, this will be a welcomed challenge. Oversight is performance based and there are no assumptions that long days and hours put in = better performance. The employees are entrusted with their own success."

"I worked at Arrow for 2 1/2 years. They have a decent benefits package, allow you to work independently, and are pretty flexible with your schedule. However, there are not many opportunities to move up in the company."

"The company has identified the need to move into other higher margin businesses in order to sustain growth and profitability and has done a good job identifying opportunities for organic growth and given people the latitude and tools to be successful. They also balance and complement this growth with M&A activity."

"I worked for Arrow ECS for 3 years and found it to be a sweat shop. There was always tremendous pressure from upper management to accomplish things that just cannot be done. Very hard working company with low pay with little reward and appreciation. Great benefits and direct managers generally have a lot of experience, are very talented, personable, and easy to get along with."

"I have worked for Arrow Electronics for 5 years and it was a good company with good benefits when I joined however top management is not connected with the problems and lack of professionalism of the middle managers; which put high stress on the sales people without providing the resources. Many people is not motivated, due to unattainable sales budgets."
