    I worked at SYNNEX full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The training and team building was very helpful, as well as my project managers were accessible for any questions or concerns. There are many opportunities to grow and move across the company. There are lots of travel opportunities and events to grow relationships with resellers.

    Cons

    Depending on who's team you are on it may or may not be easy to move up, or to other opportunities within the company. Some team supervisors prefer to keep their team members where they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, the company is great. Just be sure everyone is being fair when it comes to moving up and across in the company.

    I worked at SYNNEX as an intern (less than an year)

    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.

    I have been working at SYNNEX full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
