    Pros

    Supporting teams and coworkers, positive environment. Global company so international travel is an option. CEO is forward looking.

    Cons

    Low margin industry so they are always cutting cost, sometimes that is processes and sometimes it is people.

    Pros

    Most associates are dedicated to the business and pleasant to work with. Decent work / life balance and compensation is fair for position.

    Cons

    Training for new associates is almost non-existent and you must be willing to lean on your teammates to learn the business - especially if you are coming from another industry.

    Advice to Management

    Create a positive working atmosphere for your team and manage them appropriately. Don't assume all single contributor associates can and will work effectively and independently. The new collaborative office in Irvine should create a more positive working atmosphere for all.

    Pros

    Work life balance, coworkers, time off

    Cons

    No room for advancement, almost yearly layoffs, very low morale, too many layers of management

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing, reward the hard workers and get rid of dead weight, promote from within, show some respect to the people who are making the company richer other than the yearly lunch.

    Decent benefits - 401k, Health
    Great office atmosphere - Co-workers are great. Manager are a mixed bag but generally competent
    Tons of promotions, lunches, etc.
    Opportunity for advancement - Easy to quickly move up to bigger positions

    Advice to Management

    Throwing parties for employees is a good way to keep morale up, but an even better method would be to pay the employees a better wage.

    Pros

    Difficult to get fired, company outings and special events are fun but I would rather see that money be spent on talent

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive, most managers are inept and do not know how to lead

    Advice to Management

    Advance talented people quicker, or you'll continue to lose them to other companies.

    Pros

    You get the experience of working with a industry leading company, share and collaborate with top professionals and gain the knowledge to advance your career.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for advancement. It's really about who you know not what you know. Ingram's Williamsville office lack diversity, not only in management but in general.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is higher within. There are a lot of talented people who are not given the opportunity or chance to advance.
