    Beware - Also known as Concentrix - ALL BAD

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPaycheck til u get fired without any notice

    ConsMost 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 Senior ManagementContinue running this like it is your own little kingdom and watch all good employees leave

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    colleagues are nice there. and the training there is useful for a freshman.

    AR Specialist (Former Employee)
    Chengdu, Sichuan (China)

    Prosthe circumstance is really like a foreign company style. Communication is very much valubale in it.

    Consmaybe you will not have much chances to get promoted, as they do have enough officer or manager there.

    Advice to Senior Managementmaybe more about "how is my career path here in the company", as we first got into the company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company, solid internships available

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood 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.

    ConsWas 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Would Not Recommend

    Human Resources (Former Employee)
    Fremont, CA

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

    ConsPay 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 Senior ManagementCreate a company culture where employees are valued and appreciated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosstable company and employee has very good job security. overall the benefit is okay

    Lesson Learned - Poor Pay - Poor Leadership - Poor Mgt - Cheap - Poor Morale

    ALL Jobs (Former Employee)
    Fremont, CA

    ProsHard working employees (too hard)

    ConsHR protects the top leadership and not the employees
    Senior HR will allow Mgt. to Over work employees, mistreat employees, demean people and talk to you and look at you like you are crazy and dismiss you before having a conversation.
    Unorganized
    Leadership NEEDS soft skills
    Low morale environment
    New ideas are not allowed
    If your not kissing up you will not be rewarded
    Processes for promotion/profit sharing not adhered to and only given to senior mgt "Friends circle"
    Holidays are not respected
    Not only are employees squeezed to perform as 3-4 people but there are no true perks other than vacation time off.
    No appreciation or value shown for hard work
    No training
    No support by mgt
    High turnover

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you reviewed the other SYNNEX and Concentrix reviews you would see the same problem persists!
    Re-evaluate your leaders, give them soft skills, share the wealth by investing in true talent, don't dismiss those who are energetic, hungry and willing to improve your processes and make a positive difference. Give raises and performance reviews to all. Don't discriminate and mistreat these educated and hard working people.
    NOTE: Sales may bring in revenue but they are not the only employees who drive value and should not be the only ones rewarded... Get it together, these two companies are a mess internally! Eventually the companies will fail because of the mis. management. The culture needs a HUGE makeover or needs one period.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting because it is my first time to experience in a manufacturing company.

    Estimator (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsPerhaps 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementI just hope that the management always would be fair and reasonable in dealing with the employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
