    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Tarrytown, NY

    I worked at Westcon Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company supported training, but there was insufficient time to always attend available courses.

    Cons

    There is very limited work/life balance. Everyone is expected to work outside normal business hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more direct contact between senior management and employees. Senior management spends too much time traveling, rather than managing resources.

    Westcon is a decent compay. Good benefits, room for growth, consistent training. You can have longevity there.

    To many chiefs, raises are far and few in between. Need to value employees more.

    Give more consideration to your employees overall, especially those in the day to day operations. Give more and better raises Not just to account managers and VPs.

    Lack of materials and resources to accomplish unrealistic goals set forth by management.
    A wide disconnect between upper management and the workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solicit more feedback from the rank and file.
    Stress accountability and ownership at all levels.
    Provide top notch training and resources for ALL levels.
    Better Compensation in line with current market.
