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

    Pros

    The environment is very relaxed. Everyone is very nice, and busy.
    Ice machine. Love the ice machine.

    Cons

    They are cheap. Low pay, no utensils, no food, not even tampons in the women's bathroom. I have never seen a company not offer at least these items.
    Stuck in the 80's type of environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. Offer better pay, that is at least equal to what other companies pay. Add a cafeteria, or at least have utensils.

  3.  

    Fortune 250 company stuck in the old times with old ways and old processes with some associates trying to claw forward.

    I have been working at SYNNEX full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable, no micromanagement, fast-paced, success-driven

    Cons

    Lack of structure, lack of career path, little support, most associates concerned with CYA than actually impacting business. There is a group who does want to improve things but to say its an uphill battle is an understatement. Managers who receive little management training yet can impact their direct reports' futures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your associates. Don't hold hands and then wonder why the NA group is apathetic or stir-crazy. Keep commitments or don't make the promises in the first place. Trust. Trust those who have a proven track record of being SYNNEX-loyal and care as much about the bottom line as as executive team.

    Pros

    Depending on your manager you might have a fantastic experience; company is extremely stable; stock is through the roof; people are extremely loyal for the IT industry; fun sales environment; nice amount of young people

    Cons

    Promote from within meaning management has been there forever and most don't even have college degrees; very against working from home compared to other companies making it difficult to live anywhere there's not an office; most everyone is in a cubicle which can be difficult to adjust to

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reevaluate your management style and try to emulate IT companies that are popular today
