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

    Pros

    Average pay, but lots of hours.

    Cons

    Too much favoritism, cronyism, and corruption... You're either part of the gang (or a family member) or not. If not, expect to be singled out, blamed, exploited, and treated unfairly while others take credit for your hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try looking at results instead of rumors...How many good managers do you have to loose before you realize there's a few bad mangers that have been there way too long and will do anything, good or bad, to keep the eyes off of them....

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

    Pros

    I respect management. This is HUGE in my eyes. I'd rather get paid less and work for someone I respect then get paid well and work for an ignorant dictator. The environment is very productive yet relaxed. I receive encouragement from all sides and am inspired by leadership. Excellent benefit selection; probably the best I've seen.

    Cons

    The pay is less than other places, but I'd rather be happy. The company site leaves a little to be desired, but that is changing soon, so it really doesn't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positive role-modeling. It's better to be respected than feared.

    I have been working at Ingram Micro as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    They have a nice facility in Harrisburg. They have employee appreciation days.(you get 2 hot dogs). People are nice to work with.

    Cons

    They will work you 60 hours a week. For two or three weeks straight. They come up to you 15 minutes before the end of your shift and make you stay two to four hours overtime. They say"no more than sixty hours in six days' but they don't always follow it. Lot's of non English speaking people, so at times it is difficult to get everyone on the" same page" . I have not heard a positive comment come from any employee about the company. They need to put in a revolving door with as many people they go through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apple cannot be your only client. You are working your people to many hours. You need to hire more people that will work not just eat up the time clock.

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

    Pros

    Decent work life balance, great place to learn the IT industry. Good facilities, lots of opportunity to move around.

    Cons

    Focus on raising margins through pricing. Constant margin pressure and cost controls creates employee uncertainty. Mid management is weak and have too many direct reports to get coaching Director/VP level is like a club that you have to be a buddy with someone to get ahead..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a leader and look for ways to raise pricing. recent culture changes favor younger employees, look for ways to not have this shift alienate veteran core employees.
