I worked at Ingram Book Group

Pros

People are great, really nice; the atmosphere is not super-high-pressure; it's a very stable company, even though they've had layoffs in the past; lots of long-time employees (20 years or more)

Cons

Politics can be deadly, depending on which department you work in; benefits are so-so; salary increases and promotions are so-so and can depend on politics more than skills; very Nashville-centric culture, they don't acknowledge much that's outside the Nashville office

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the old guard.

    I have been working at Ingram Book Group

    Pros

    Probally the benifets, Some people in the warehouse to have worked with.

    Cons

    That there are people waiting on you to fail to take your job, Only realize what you have done in the last month not the years you have put in, Getting nothing but excellent reviews and above excellent reviews
    only to walk you out the door when you have medical issues. Managment having HR in there back pocket, Steeping up in your job to take responsibility on your own while company looking for supervisors
    for your department several times only for them not to reconize what you have done.Duing a supervisors job on your own for years and the managment not to reconize that you have been running the department. Back to the reviews of getting a excellent review only to be walked out the door 2 months later with a reason that has no bearing on my job prformance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize when someone is trying to take your job, And remember what a employee has done for years not the last 6 months due to health promblems.

    Pros

    They really believe from promoting from within... Almost to a fault though

    Cons

    Since they tend to recycle the same individuals throughout the company, the message gets stale. It is an extremely large private own company that has its own little quirks, and doesn't operate how you feel a company of its size would. The feeling is that management positions are handed out to the best kiss ass and not the most qualified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand that you feel like you are qualified to be in your position, but ask yourself if you had to apply for another management position at another company...How would you view your chances? Most management at Ingram doesn't even have college education and it reflects in their management decisions. Their management style is antequated and uninformed.
