    Pros

    Good people/culture, challenging internships with decent pay. Would recommend to a friend. People seemed to have a good work/life balance and senior staff is very accessible.

    Cons

    Was disappointed with opportunities within the company available post internship. They like hiring high performing interns which is a plus however I felt the money wasn't competitive enough especially at a big company like Synnex.

    Pros

    Perhaps I may find this another challenging and interesting job whereby I may use my technical knowledge and supervision experience besides offering a better salary than my present one.

    Cons

    I think I need to prove my diligence and my willingness to learn further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I just hope that the management always would be fair and reasonable in dealing with the employees.

    Pros

    The people are great, there is a "can do" culture with a team attitude and atmosphere. You can have a very good work/life balance.

    Cons

    They tend to value outside talent more than they value current employees with tons of potential. Expectations tend to be closer to unrealistic than realistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more value on the employees you've grown rather than the ones brought in from the outside.

    Pros

    Synnex has good people, good benefits and good financial strength. The work is challenging and the earning potential is good for inside sales, business development managers, and product managers.

    Cons

    There are many long term employees that have the potential and qualifications to move to managerial, director and associate executive positions...but because executive management brings in talent from the competition and outside sources, those employee's potential is not realized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Create a database of employees, their qualifications, skills and talents. You sell software on your line card that will make this possible.

    Pros

    Great place to learn two tier distribution and become familiar with IT Vendors. Employee's are paid above industry standard. Positive work atmosphere when compared to other distributors. Accessibility of senior management allows everyone to feel connected with the direction of the company and how decisions are being made. I would suggest SYNNEX to anyone wanting to start a long term distribution career or to make connections with a diverse group of vendors. Because SYNNEX is positioned as a Business Process Services company and not a traditional broadline distributor there is the ability to think outside the box and change directions quickly.

    Cons

    Career employee's who punch the 9-5 clock and don't offer much additional effort although you find these people at most companies. There are a few people in management positions who would have been weeded out in other companies due to their attitudes and lack of people skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue course around BPS and innovation.
