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

    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

    I worked at SYNNEX as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good people/culture, challenging internships with decent pay. Would recommend to a friend. People seemed to have a good work/life balance and senior staff is very accessible.

    Cons

    Was disappointed with opportunities within the company available post internship. They like hiring high performing interns which is a plus however I felt the money wasn't competitive enough especially at a big company like Synnex.

    Pros

    Perhaps I may find this another challenging and interesting job whereby I may use my technical knowledge and supervision experience besides offering a better salary than my present one.

    Cons

    I think I need to prove my diligence and my willingness to learn further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I just hope that the management always would be fair and reasonable in dealing with the employees.

    I have been working at SYNNEX

    Pros

    Paycheck til u get fired without any notice

    Cons

    Most people only there for a job because can't get one elsewhere, so no promotions unless you happen to be friends (suck up to) your manager, which also means:
    CRAPPY PAY
    Lousy benefits and low or no company morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue running this like it is your own little kingdom and watch all good employees leave

    Former Employee - Human Resources in Fremont, CA

    I worked at SYNNEX full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The HR team was great to work with and the people were friendly.

    Cons

    Pay was stingy and there is no company culture. While I was employed there was only one company picnic in the parking lot of the corporate office with make-shift games made by the admin staff. It was pretty sad. Unless you're in sales there are no perks. Sales employees got to go to sporting and concert events in luxury boxes at SAP center and often had catered lunches provided by partners and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a company culture where employees are valued and appreciated.
