    I have been working at SYNNEX full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The environment is very relaxed. Everyone is very nice, and busy.
    Ice machine. Love the ice machine.

    Cons

    They are cheap. Low pay, no utensils, no food, not even tampons in the women's bathroom. I have never seen a company not offer at least these items.
    Stuck in the 80's type of environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. Offer better pay, that is at least equal to what other companies pay. Add a cafeteria, or at least have utensils.

    Pros

    Discount on computer items and good breaks

    Cons

    Will not be truthful in telling you what to expect and how poor the salaries are. Hours too long for the pay.

    Pros

    Lots of support from other dept. to help you sell. Management is always available to help close deals and provide ongoing support. The management is easy to work with and very understanding. They are adding more products constantly. Great support from Vendors as well. The benefits are great and they do a lot of little things to keep you happy.

    Cons

    Due to size some dept are slow to respond for help, but it happens with larger companies.

    I worked at SYNNEX full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The training and team building was very helpful, as well as my project managers were accessible for any questions or concerns. There are many opportunities to grow and move across the company. There are lots of travel opportunities and events to grow relationships with resellers.

    Cons

    Depending on who's team you are on it may or may not be easy to move up, or to other opportunities within the company. Some team supervisors prefer to keep their team members where they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, the company is great. Just be sure everyone is being fair when it comes to moving up and across in the company.

    Pros

    None. Everything sucks... most of the Pros is going to work and see your friends and work to pay bills.

    Cons

    Swingshift was pushed up on us to start, no choice was given.. other than quit if you didn't want to work it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to get their act together. . Management sucks. Company has almost 4 years of running things the same way. They will not grow and their customers will start noticing on their products integration and performance.

    Fortune 250 company stuck in the old times with old ways and old processes with some associates trying to claw forward.

    I have been working at SYNNEX full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable, no micromanagement, fast-paced, success-driven

    Cons

    Lack of structure, lack of career path, little support, most associates concerned with CYA than actually impacting business. There is a group who does want to improve things but to say its an uphill battle is an understatement. Managers who receive little management training yet can impact their direct reports' futures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your associates. Don't hold hands and then wonder why the NA group is apathetic or stir-crazy. Keep commitments or don't make the promises in the first place. Trust. Trust those who have a proven track record of being SYNNEX-loyal and care as much about the bottom line as as executive team.

    Pros

    Depending on your manager you might have a fantastic experience; company is extremely stable; stock is through the roof; people are extremely loyal for the IT industry; fun sales environment; nice amount of young people

    Cons

    Promote from within meaning management has been there forever and most don't even have college degrees; very against working from home compared to other companies making it difficult to live anywhere there's not an office; most everyone is in a cubicle which can be difficult to adjust to

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reevaluate your management style and try to emulate IT companies that are popular today
