    Good place to learn your chops - probably not the place for a long term career

    Senior Manager + (Former Employee) Santa Ana, CA

    ProsGreat environment for younger folks to learn different positions, corporate processes and culture (both good and bad). Don't work in IT or operations - total burn out. Great opportunity to learn and be exposed to market leading vendors. Most good folks leave to join manufacturer partners.

    ConsUnfortunately longer term success and career path has more to do with political relationships and/or being a "yes" person than it does with anything else. There are lots of good people there but if you're not in the club, you're out. Lots of talk about "culture" and "the people" but unfortunately it's just that - talk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe stock price is higher than it's been in years thanks to layoffs and acquisitions. Keep it up. However, I hope for all the good people there that you don't break the organization by ignoring the core issues. Best wishes.

    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

    By far the worst company I've ever worked for...and I've had more than a dozen employers throughout my career.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Santa Ana, CA

    ProsGood cafeteria - sad, but that's the only positive experience here

    Cons12 hour plus days and still can't complete the work - no demand management exists. Management is unconcerned about employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Buffalo, NY

    ProsWork hard and you will be rewarded

    ConsSome team members get away with not doing their share of the work, but that happens at every job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work and reward your employees!

    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.

    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

    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
