    Would Not Recommend

    Human Resources (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsThe HR team was great to work with and the people were friendly.

    ConsPay was stingy and there is no company culture. While I was employed there was only one company picnic in the parking lot of the corporate office with make-shift games made by the admin staff. It was pretty sad. Unless you're in sales there are no perks. Sales employees got to go to sporting and concert events in luxury boxes at SAP center and often had catered lunches provided by partners and customers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a company culture where employees are valued and appreciated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Quality Control

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Lesson Learned - Poor Pay - Poor Leadership - Poor Mgt - Cheap - Poor Morale

    ALL Jobs (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsHard working employees (too hard)

    ConsHR protects the top leadership and not the employees
    Senior HR will allow Mgt. to Over work employees, mistreat employees, demean people and talk to you and look at you like you are crazy and dismiss you before having a conversation.
    Unorganized
    Leadership NEEDS soft skills
    Low morale environment
    New ideas are not allowed
    If your not kissing up you will not be rewarded
    Processes for promotion/profit sharing not adhered to and only given to senior mgt "Friends circle"
    Holidays are not respected
    Not only are employees squeezed to perform as 3-4 people but there are no true perks other than vacation time off.
    No appreciation or value shown for hard work
    No training
    No support by mgt
    High turnover

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you reviewed the other SYNNEX and Concentrix reviews you would see the same problem persists!
    Re-evaluate your leaders, give them soft skills, share the wealth by investing in true talent, don't dismiss those who are energetic, hungry and willing to improve your processes and make a positive difference. Give raises and performance reviews to all. Don't discriminate and mistreat these educated and hard working people.
    NOTE: Sales may bring in revenue but they are not the only employees who drive value and should not be the only ones rewarded... Get it together, these two companies are a mess internally! Eventually the companies will fail because of the mis. management. The culture needs a HUGE makeover or needs one period.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Most disorganized, poorly trained, non communicating company I have EVER worked for in over 30 years in the field!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsThe fellow employees are doing the best they can (those that stay hired) in a 20% lower hourly wage bracket than other comparable jobs in the Bay Area in that field.

    ConsSo many negative areas, hard to list them all. The most disheartening, is that management shows through their actions that they DO NOT CARE about any form of process improvement!
    The LEAN warehouse principles are as foreign as the core ownership (Chinese) of this company. Super excessive employee turnover, most new hires (5% of those that first apply), leave within the first week. It seems that people in management, supervisor position and up, have NEVER actually held their position before, have little to no experience. Shocking..

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs an overhaul, go to training classes, re-think hiring process, incentive for faithful workers, COMMUNCATE, as well as be approachable, welcome, utilize new ideas, CREATE a STANDARD OPERATING PRACTISE for the MANY different processes. Learn '5 S"... and use it!!

    Twice the work for half the pay, other than that, a great fun company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Greenville, SC

    ProsSolid strong company to work for in terms of company health/longevity. Many free lunches, snacks, and after-work events.

    ConsDon't expect any help from anyone. If you can't handle twice the work for half the pay, "there's the door!". Benefits used to be great, but recently went downhill.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay loyal hard-working employees what they should be getting (i.e. market average). Hire more support for overstressed non-sales/marketing teams.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    extremely low pay with high turnover

    Product Manager (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    Prosyou could work there your entire career and make decent money after years. In sales lots of trips/prizes (you get taxed on)

    Conslow pay, long hours, no work/life balance. Long time before career opps open up

    Worst place to work for

    Buyer (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsWork life Balance
    Training
    Fortune 500 company

    ConsUnderpaid
    Micromanage everythging that is done
    chit chatting freely to coworkers are not allowed except during lunch and break

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to trust your employees. Stop micro managing them. Let them chit chat and build relationships with their peers

    Get some experience here and get out.

    Program Manager (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsGood job security. You can work here for the rest of your life as long as you complete your low productivity tasks. Benefits package here is above average when compared to other companies.

    ConsMinimal room for advancement and growth. Working environment is very dissatisfying with lack of motivation from peers. Management provides next to no performance evaluations and does not help employees in their advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time listening to the employees instead of taking time off. Management is constantly out on "business trips" with minimal reviews with employees. Personal reviews allow for improvement and growth.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
