    I worked at SYNNEX

    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

    Pros

    Close team environment even if you work remotely.
    Compensation is fair and stability is much greater than other organizations within the channel. Tenure of folks within Synnex is typically 4x-5x the length to other organizations.

    Cons

    Very difficult to be promoted from inside sales to field sales position, although it is possible.

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere and networking possibilities are endless. Great people to work with across all functions of the business units. Established departments for critical small tasks. Accessible reporting and very functional internal system that is modernized for a billion $ company.

    Cons

    The compensation packages require you to low-ball your forecasts if you wish to be paid to any reasonable level. Unforgiving metrics and company standards are a daily struggle. Poor analysis by Senior Management on growth potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upside shouldn't be a bad thing, however Management's view is based on Y/Y. Just because something occurred in a previous year, doesn't mean it should be expected to be anniversaried.

    I worked at SYNNEX full-time (less than a 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

    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.
