    Constant Change Hard to move up past level of Account Executive. Must become Sales Manager before Director and take a pay cut from Account Executive level. Little access to High level executives in California. Feels like two separate companies in Buffalo and CA. Low margin business means low pay

    Advice to Management

    greater integration between Buffalo and CA offices

    Pros

    The biggest pro of working at IM is their size which created opportunity for upward movement in a former time period.

    Cons

    They have undergone 3 Reduction in Force programs in less than 2 years which has eliminated a lot of jobs. The associates who are still employed are doing the work of more than one person. It is referred to as Optimization

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the associates who are fortunate enough to still have their jobs....ask them how difficult it has been for them as positions have been eliminated.

    I worked at Ingram Micro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fortune 100 company w/ opportunities to transfer to other locations.

    Cons

    Touchstone Wireless management philosophy still in effect at the Fort Worth location. Upper management is too busy with trying to tell everyone else how to do their jobs and not focusing on doing their own job to the best of their ability, thus the operations suffer from poor support.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do some soul searching on the true value of Touchstone legacy leadership. Until these positions are replaced with new blood that know what is means to be a true world class company, that facility will never realize their true potential. The leadership in that facility is the exact reason they lost their largest customer to their competitor.
