    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good Compensation at the time you join (after that hike depends on your terms with your Manager)
    - Learning curve is OK, not very good, not very bad, depends on you, how much you can make out of it.
    - Onsite opportunities are very less and that too depends on the terms with your Manager

    Cons

    -Lot of politics, people who don't know anything are surviving due to terms with manager and getting good hikes with all other perks.
    -New employees can only make their way out if you sit in your Manager's good books not on the talent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kindly try not be this much biased, give fair chance to everyone, consider the effort of the employees while giving the hikes etc.

    Pros

    Work environment is good. Ideas are respected and considered. Salry compared to other companies is satisfactory. People are competent in their positions.

    Cons

    Management is new. Salary Hike should be given as there is a big difference in the salaries of the employees working in same profile in other locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training should be provided. And a proper framework (design) should be implemented for the growth of IT employees
