Pros

The sales experience you aquire with the largest IT distributor.
The people you work with.
Work/life balance.
The vendor perks (from the vendor manufacturers, not Ingram Micro)

Cons

Unfortunately they keep taking easy way out every time IT industry gets into a slump by either laying off, eliminating some departments, outsourcing (which will eventually be the death of them) or restructuring the pay structure (which always seems to hit the pockets of the Sales people hardest).

Most of the good sales talent is long gone and what talent is left, most is waisted by transactional type work due to the company's sales department restructure blunder.

No incentive left to SELL due to lack of commissions and unreachable bonus structure. Though they still overpay management (which seems to be top heavy). It's outragious when you see the difference between what management makes and what sales makes. So unbalanced when you realize who really brings in their business.

Health benefits get worse every year. Cost of your co-pay, etc. By the time they take the health insurance out of your measly check (especially if you have Family plan), you wonder if it's worth it!

Constant worry of when your job will be outsourced which destroyed the moral.

Advice to Management

Go back to the ways that brought the company to being Number ONE.
Take care of the talent you have left and do not take it for granted.

You need to stop hiring inexperienced "CHEAP" labor. You should know you'll get what you pay for ! You keep reminding your customers of that, maybe you should take heed also.

Listen to what your employees are saying or complaining about and REALLY do something about improving the problem instead of just making a note of it.

    Pros

    Ingram Micro offers great employees, and an atmosphere with many career advancement opportunities. Benefits like free lunches on training days and vendor sponsored concerts, sporting events and other event tickets is a huge plus!

    Cons

    East vs West coast battle for power and sustainability, jobs can move from coast to coast based on management shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Management jobs do open up ocassionally, however with the soft job market in Buffalo long term job holding is observed.
