EmployeeWorked in IT at Arrow Electronics in New York City, NY at the time of review.

What I like

Flexible with remote working at least my group

What I dislike

Quality work not important, least cost. Very few resources with knowledge remain and diversity is just a buzzword. Don't feel there is a solid strategy, and layoffs are always on employees mind. To much weekend support due to app instability

Suggestions for improvement

IT lacking diversity, there is a high percent of non US sponsorship required staff now that replace more company knowledgeable resources.

Flew my entire team to Atlanta to participate in the holiday party.

Outsourced helpdesk in India. There is a language barrier that makes it difficult to get technical support.

The only improvement I would suggest is bringing Internal Helpdesk in the US.

Former EmployeeWorked at Arrow Electronics in Gahanna, OH.

What I like

I enjoyed the work I did with the company and enjoyed how quickly I received a few raises, The monthly partys we had for employees helped keep the moral up as well

What I dislike

When a problem arises and gets communicated, It seems as tho there is a small effort to correct issues if it is a personal matter.

Suggestions for improvement

There is a real problem with horse play that I would definitely address.

Company Culture

Improvement can be made at professionalism

Internal Communication

good at communicating what needs to be done but personal recognition seems lacking

Work-Life Balance

too much overtime became a real issue before I left

Gender Equality

did not notice very many women in high positions

Handicapped Accessibility

was unaware of any special accommodations

Career Development

there are advancement opportunities but if you become good at your current position, they are less likely to offer advancement

It can be challenging when you first start, but with a bit of time is pretty simple work

Former EmployeeWorked at Arrow Electronics in Boise, ID.

What I like

My team worked together very well and consistently produced a great product. I enjoyed the challenges that arose and learning about so many different aspects of what it takes to successfully run a website.

What I dislike

I think that the company grew too fast into new sectors. They didn't understand what they were getting themselves into and then refused to hire more help as we grew exponentially. It was very frustrating to feel so unheard and unappreciated.

Suggestions for improvement

Like so many other places, I think one of the things that needs work is the tonedeaf higher ups who refuse to listen to the constructive feedback and suggestions made by managers who work in the smaller offices.
