    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.

    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.

    I worked at Ingram Micro full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ingram Micro has very talented people that work there. Although they have a lot of entry level marketing and functional type roles, their management is second to none. Very smart people. They bring in young talent and groom them up. They tend to select similar type of personnel in the hiring process. Those that are loyal and looking to collaborate while working hard.

    Cons

    A con to many might be the pay but the stability is what they offer to their employees. Distribution is a high volume low margin business. Ingram Micro offers great experience and long term employment. You would see people that work there 10 years plus and enjoy being there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ingram Micro is a fortune 100 company. They are structure similar to other fortune 100 companies. Their compensation, training, perks, etc,... are in line with most others. They actually offer great benefits for a company with tight margins. Their stock is going up.
