    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I can't speak for other departments but my manager instills teamwork and takes the role of a mentor more than anything. Compensation is fair and their medical, dental, and vision benefits are great. Personal growth is totally up to the employee to ensure that he/she is always asking for more projects.

    Cons

    Not much room to grow in title, however, salary increases every year.

    I worked at Ingram Micro as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They are a very professional organization that has a strong knowledge base of professionals to associate with. I would recommend people to work here if given the opportunity.

    Cons

    I really didn't have any cons to come up with. They want to hire the best talent in the marketplace so I believe that is a good feather in their hat. Great company for sure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to recommend at this point. Their company values were/are professionally aligned and their comp was market rate as well.

    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I respect management. This is HUGE in my eyes. I'd rather get paid less and work for someone I respect then get paid well and work for an ignorant dictator. The environment is very productive yet relaxed. I receive encouragement from all sides and am inspired by leadership. Excellent benefit selection; probably the best I've seen.

    Cons

    The pay is less than other places, but I'd rather be happy. The company site leaves a little to be desired, but that is changing soon, so it really doesn't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positive role-modeling. It's better to be respected than feared.

    Pros

    Dynamic environment fulfilled with challenges and accomplishments. It's a great company to be part of.

    Cons

    Low margins lead to constant focus and priority on cost reduction which lead to some negative surprises with last minute "course corrections".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IS Top management must be stable and focused on long term achievements to avoid constant CIO switches and consequent reorganizations in the middle of important milestones achievements.

    Pros

    Great people, office culture, environment of mutual respect, compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Frequent changes at upper management and executive levels breaks confidence in the state of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Such frequent management changes are not a good thing - try some stability, listen to your employees when new management comes in!

    I have been working at Ingram Micro

    Pros

    I can't say for all the other department but in my department, everyone's very genuine and respectful. Working is enjoyable and interacting with colleagues is very comfortable. Benefits are good and policies are pretty lenient.

    Cons

    Depending on the department, you may not get too many "leads" on projects by your managers since there aren't too many you work with. So if the few managers you work right under are busy, it's vital you have a queue of work to do so you aren't twiddling your thumbs all day. Also, work and projects may be hard to finish without direct help from your superiors but this just means you have to be actively seeking for help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company's been getting bigger and bigger, with respect to the stock price and the market capitalization. I'm sure the management has a lot to do with it, but it's important to note again it's all the staffs, seniors, managers, and directors that contribute to the growth, not only the C-suite levels.

    Some team members get away with not doing their share of the work, but that happens at every job.

    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Teams work very well with one another. Understand the overall goal is to hit a quota and bring the business through Ingram. Ability to further your career is available and managers are understanding when leaving a division.

    Cons

    Very strict with the written rules. 3 years of Ingram experience is essentially the same to 1 year of outside experience. Are not willing to pay you for a position unless you met their exact criteria, even if a vendor is telling them they will pull the offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand number of dials are not the only way to determine if quota is being hit or business is being driven.
