Customer Service Rep / International Account Mgr (Current Employee), Mississauga, ON – October 16, 2014
Pros: good benefits, good hours, good salary
Cons: not adapting to new times and technology despite its 5 years out motto
I've been happy to work for Arrow for the last 6 years except for the fact that my last 4 years have provided me with a very satisfactory job in a very unsatisfactory location and environment, with small to no room for growth and an HR/corporate lack of flexibility in terms of using today's technology to perform my tasks remotely rather than in an office environment. This last point has lead me to resign as I requested to be able to keep doing my job from a different city to where I will be relocating and the request was denied, even though my tasks require no interaction with suppliers, customers, teammates or management and all communication is done via e-mail, IM or web with very little phone interaction. For a company that claims to be 5 years out, it is actually 30 years behind in some of its politics and policies.
