    Pros

    Ability to move up or move into different roles is good overall so you can find where your best role

    Cons

    Not the same company it was and is falling away from the reasons it used to be "the best company to work for"

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, especially that have have been there for over 10 years. Stop treating everyone a through their role and experience are replaceable

    Lots of exposure to/networking with the best channel vendors and resellers. Tons of different types of jobs.

    Low gross margin means slightly under-paying compared to good channel partners and vendors doing similar jobs.

    Pros

    Financially stable company, friendly co-workers, ample parking, decent pay and benefits. Like any big company, your satisfaction will largely depend on how you get along with your team and manager. Some managers here are very special and supportive. Some aren't.

    Cons

    Low margins=frequent cost-cutting=3 substantial RIFs in 3 years. Executive level that talks one big family but is rarely visible and lacks credibility. Company is striving to carve a new identity in the world of distribution and make more profits from services but for now is winging it.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the claptrap about it's the people and amp up the pay and benefits.

    Pros

    Work life balance, coworkers, time off

    Cons

    No room for advancement, almost yearly layoffs, very low morale, too many layers of management

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing, reward the hard workers and get rid of dead weight, promote from within, show some respect to the people who are making the company richer other than the yearly lunch.

    Pros

    Most associates are dedicated to the business and pleasant to work with. Decent work / life balance and compensation is fair for position.

    Cons

    Training for new associates is almost non-existent and you must be willing to lean on your teammates to learn the business - especially if you are coming from another industry.

    Advice to Management

    Create a positive working atmosphere for your team and manage them appropriately. Don't assume all single contributor associates can and will work effectively and independently. The new collaborative office in Irvine should create a more positive working atmosphere for all.

    Pros

    Decent benefits - 401k, Health Great office atmosphere - Co-workers are great. Manager are a mixed bag but generally competent Tons of promotions, lunches, etc. Opportunity for advancement - Easy to quickly move up to bigger positions

    Cons

    Poor compensation - considerably lower than comparable positions Often arbitrary rules/policies Low PTO - Sick days come out of vacation time

    Advice to Management

    Throwing parties for employees is a good way to keep morale up, but an even better method would be to pay the employees a better wage.
