I worked at Ingram Micro

Pros

The sales experience you aquire with the largest IT distributor.
The people you work with.
Work/life balance.
The vendor perks (from the vendor manufacturers, not Ingram Micro)

Cons

Unfortunately they keep taking easy way out every time IT industry gets into a slump by either laying off, eliminating some departments, outsourcing (which will eventually be the death of them) or restructuring the pay structure (which always seems to hit the pockets of the Sales people hardest).

Most of the good sales talent is long gone and what talent is left, most is waisted by transactional type work due to the company's sales department restructure blunder.

No incentive left to SELL due to lack of commissions and unreachable bonus structure. Though they still overpay management (which seems to be top heavy). It's outragious when you see the difference between what management makes and what sales makes. So unbalanced when you realize who really brings in their business.

Health benefits get worse every year. Cost of your co-pay, etc. By the time they take the health insurance out of your measly check (especially if you have Family plan), you wonder if it's worth it!

Constant worry of when your job will be outsourced which destroyed the moral.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to the ways that brought the company to being Number ONE.
Take care of the talent you have left and do not take it for granted.

You need to stop hiring inexperienced "CHEAP" labor. You should know you'll get what you pay for ! You keep reminding your customers of that, maybe you should take heed also.

Listen to what your employees are saying or complaining about and REALLY do something about improving the problem instead of just making a note of it.

    I worked at Ingram Micro

    Pros

    Pay was good, benefits were better than average. They do stay up on the latest technologies, but do not offer the opportunity for exposure to them.

    Cons

    Management should listen to employee's ideas and thoughts, needs MUCH more communication between employees and management. Management is not supportive of employees at all.

    Senior Management has no clue on what they are doing, plays favorites with employees. They do not listen to employees suggestions, will protect each other's back no matter what the situation.

    No initial training provided, then they penalize the employees for not knowing the system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that actually know what they are doing and have had actual experience in managing professional employees. Managers should be aware of human resources procedures and not just make things up.

    Pros

    The pay is good. Overall company is stable financially. Large 3PL clients with large volume.

    Cons

    Long hours, weekends and holidays all without notice are the bad. They say its their "culture", its not staffing appropriately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase number of management staff to improve oversight and reduce burnout.
