    I have been working at SYNNEX full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are great, there is a "can do" culture with a team attitude and atmosphere. You can have a very good work/life balance.

    Cons

    They tend to value outside talent more than they value current employees with tons of potential. Expectations tend to be closer to unrealistic than realistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more value on the employees you've grown rather than the ones brought in from the outside.

    Pros

    The fellow employees are doing the best they can (those that stay hired) in a 20% lower hourly wage bracket than other comparable jobs in the Bay Area in that field.

    Cons

    So many negative areas, hard to list them all. The most disheartening, is that management shows through their actions that they DO NOT CARE about any form of process improvement!
    The LEAN warehouse principles are as foreign as the core ownership (Chinese) of this company. Super excessive employee turnover, most new hires (5% of those that first apply), leave within the first week. It seems that people in management, supervisor position and up, have NEVER actually held their position before, have little to no experience. Shocking..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs an overhaul, go to training classes, re-think hiring process, incentive for faithful workers, COMMUNCATE, as well as be approachable, welcome, utilize new ideas, CREATE a STANDARD OPERATING PRACTISE for the MANY different processes. Learn '5 S"... and use it!!

    I worked at SYNNEX full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, Industry is fun and company is on cutting edge
    Fortune 300 so profit sharing

    Cons

    Management does not care about their employees. Many many people in same position for years. I was there 8 years and none of my co workers were getting promoted or empowered to grow. Only current managers get promoted (director to VP, VP to SVP etc), Not a lot of growth and company won't help you if your position is eliminated. Take this company as a way to learn something new and get out. Don't spend too much time there, you will become complacent and will have stale skill sets because they do not give you many opportunities to learn something new

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    care about your employees. They are the guys in the front line
