    Good company, great opportunities

    Warehouse Associate (Former Employee)
    Mira Loma, CA

    ProsIf you work hard you can move up in the company.

    ConsLike in many companies its competitive which can cause cliques to form and to bump heads.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your long tender associate they are the ones that helped build this company to become what it is today, instead of looking at new associate to take there positions for cheaper salaries.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place to learn but advancement is limited

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat teamwork among staff to complete goals.

    ConsThe compensation and benefits for the upper management increases while nothing is done to help the rest of the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's great that management has been able to increase the stock price but at what cost is it worth it to destroy company moral.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    In my experience Ingram is a great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people at Ingram are amazing. Everyone works long hours. They are the leading global distributor for IT products.

    ConsPolitics are ever increasing at Ingram and makes it difficult at times to get your job done. Employees really are not empowered and decisions are often delegated to VP, EVP and President.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your associates. Remove as much of the politics as possible.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Change is the norm

    Senior IS Manager (Current Employee)
    Santa Ana, CA

    ProsIt is Never boring, there is lots to do, and it can be exciting

    ConsDon't promote from within
    Staff reductions and firings are common
    Organization changes far too much to be successful
    No work life balance
    No Employee stock program

    Advice to Senior ManagementMgmt doesn't share the success with everyone (just directors and higher).
    If you are young and need to build a resume, jump in! If you are already successful and have years of experience and knowledge, I would recommend you look elsewhere (but 3 years ago, it was just the opposite).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Top IT Distributor

    Director (Current Employee)
    Santa Ana, CA

    ProsSome flexibility with life and work balance. Work from home privileges. Great way to build relationships with vendors (manufacturers).

    ConsNever escalate serious concerns to HR. Very political and competitive atmosphere. Management states they want you to participate in making changes and improvements but don't really want to hear your ideas and frown upon attempts to make a difference. Senior management, creative and directors have little room for growth. Tailors to students fresh out of college to keep salaries at minimum.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
