    I worked at SYNNEX (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company tries to do activities that bring employees together Company does a good bit of charity work in the community

    Cons

    Micro managed to death, no one trusts anyone from the top down For my specific department it was apparent race played a role in upward movement. I saw two different African American friends of mine applied for positions they were highly qualified for be passed over for folks with no experience No pay raises despite exceeding goals 100+%

    Advice to Management

    Never fire your top sales person. I was accounting for 60% of the revenue of my department and was let go for interviewing with an outside company on my paid time off in an industry that did not compete whatsoever with my current employer. Insane.

    Pros

    Benefits and daily employee incentives by the company, not mgmt.

    Cons

    SYNNEX is full of office bullies. If you are not a "brown noser" than this is not a place you will be happy working. I had a lady whom made it her daily mission to make my time there difficult. I did everything in my power to be accepted by her, even spent $40 on a b'day gift for her. (If you are hated by someone you don't buy expensive birthday gifts, but I wanted so much for her to treat me the way she did the other girl). There was a chart of responsibilities handed out by upper level mgmt. I had to beg for my work on a daily basis. It was so bad I kept record (emails) of every time I asked for my work from her. She would give my work to another employee she liked better. It got so bad that I was doing another dept work because she wouldn't hand the material I was responsible for over to me. One day I approached her in a professional manner about the issue, and she turned childish. She ran to management, who was aware of the situation and said several times they would handle it, and whined. This lady disappeared from her desk for over an hour. Our superior came out and went looking for her. Couple of hours later I was told that whatever he had previously said regarding fixing the obvious favoritism situation was now going to be handled by everyone sharing the work. Might I add that I never did the other employees work, she only was given mine. Also, the responsibilities was handed down by headquarters in Freemont, CA, and should not have been changed. Needless to say, if you aren't "in" with the brown nosing.... Chances are they will fire you for missing a couple of days! Days that were covered by sick time, even had sick days left over and vacation time they had to pay me for....explain that one! The woman who didn't like me, had me pushed out the door 2 weeks after I confronted the situation. Might I add that it was the Legal dept., the same position they are hiring for now. Be careful. The benefits are nice, but the office bullying isn't worth it!! Oh yeah, the said reason I was let go was because I was late, another thing...the boss and I had agreed I could come in at 9 instead of 8:30 because I NEVER used an hour for lunch. So, I was instructed to take a mandatory 30min lunch break, and I could work from 9 to 5:30... Go figure. Guess anything is possible in a "right to hire/right to fire" state.

    Advice to Management

    Quit letting your "favorites" do the managing you are getting paid to do.

    Pros

    Strong stable company. Low turnover. Through the ups and downs, Synnex continues to perform strong. I have confidence that they will continue to remains strong player in the IT space.

    Not much room to grow. There are lots of opportunities within the company, but most seem lateral.

    Advice to Management

    None. Continue to recognize your strong employees and promote internally.

    Some room for advancement and many different options for career paths. Company offers positions in customer service, marketing, sales, business development and product management.

    Executive team has their favorites and tend to promote those individuals before others that have produced better results and have been with the company a longer period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your tenured employees.

    I worked at SYNNEX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent package. Insurance, retirement, tuition reimbursement, etc. were wonderful. Very clean work environment. The pay and benefits are the biggest pro to the company.

    Cons

    Aggressive sales style. Even on vacation days was contacted multiple times per day by management. The company believes that you should eat, sleep and breathe for the job and the job will consume you for 5 days per week. The company uses employee turn-over and training expenses as a means to remain a profitable business and cut the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Setting the employees up to succeed instead of fail would be a wonderful change. Also, understanding that the employees have a life outside of the company would increase worker satisfaction.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, and a starting salary for sales reps in the $35k range

    Cons

    Little room for advancement and hostile management. Very much a good old boys club once you get to manager/director level.

    Advice to Management

    Its doubtful that management can or will make changes to improve corporate culture at this point.
