    I worked at Ingram Micro full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hours are pretty good. People are pretty nice. Growth largely depends on which group you are with. Would say slow upward opps once you get to Director level.

    Cons

    Folks mostly stay within their own departments. Senior manage seem out of touch with most the associates. Not very accessible. Lots of outside hires.

    Former Employee - Vendor Licensing Spec in Buffalo, NY

    I worked at Ingram Micro full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to advance within the same position. Had great training programs (level 1, Level 2,....). Good office environment. Opportunity for extra bonuses when working with the company's outside vendors.

    Cons

    It was tough to advance to another position or department as certain departments were very segregated (i.e it was difficult to move from sales to a more technical role).

    Pros

    Great people. Big company. Good place to get some experience and so many directions to develop your career in within the company.

    Cons

    Not very agile in adopting change. Not as much marketing as I thought I would be doing (more administrative stuff/accounting/event planning/sales).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and consider how their suggested improvements could be implemented.

    Current Employee - Accountant I in Santa Ana, CA

    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I can't speak for other departments but my manager instills teamwork and takes the role of a mentor more than anything. Compensation is fair and their medical, dental, and vision benefits are great. Personal growth is totally up to the employee to ensure that he/she is always asking for more projects.

    Cons

    Not much room to grow in title, however, salary increases every year.

    Poor Compensation - Poor Team Spirit - Horrible Management

    Current Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Santa Ana, CA
    Current Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Santa Ana, CA

    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A lot of my team never even showed up to work, and would just randomly email you that they decided to work remote for the day. You pretty much make your own schedule. No one is micromanaging you

    Cons

    No potential job growth because they love to put people in a box - strict rules about how you have to be in your same position for over a year before you can change roles. So many people are leaving the company constantly that they don't want to promote anyone because the turn-over rate is already so high. Poor management - most people in management are only in that position because of "how long" they have worked there, not because of their skill set. My manager spent long hours surfing the web, looking at gossip columns online, or just plain gossiping in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much like a sorority where girls are gossiping and trying to stab each other in the back.

    I worked at Ingram Micro as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They are a very professional organization that has a strong knowledge base of professionals to associate with. I would recommend people to work here if given the opportunity.

    Cons

    I really didn't have any cons to come up with. They want to hire the best talent in the marketplace so I believe that is a good feather in their hat. Great company for sure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to recommend at this point. Their company values were/are professionally aligned and their comp was market rate as well.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great.

    Many supervisors/managers do not have any prior management experience and tend to micro-manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having dedicated sick days would be a vast improvement

    I worked at Ingram Micro full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Culture is changing for the better. Seems to be catering to millenials, short term as a first corp job ok. Lots of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Entrenched bureaucracy makes change complicated. Definitely a Yes to everything culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a broom out many directors and Sr. Managers are holding you back. You are expected to say yes to everything there is no room to bring up issues that may impact the project. Compensation is rigid and usually below market rate.
