    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    1. High average tenure of associates, promotes from within (at the mid/senior level)
    2. Collegial atmosphere
    3. Being the largest in any vertical commands respect
    4. Takes some risk, allows fresh ideas (to some extent), not completely risk averse

    Cons

    1. Incompetent IS (IT) organization
    2. Extremely low margin business, cost control is a must
    3. Red tape, unnecessarily processes

    Advice to Management

    Fix the IS organization. World's largest IT distributor deserves a better IT orgranization. Invest in high margin adjacencies, make the organization more metric-driven. Focus on a better value proposition (after all IM is not just box pushers) that utlimately deserves higher margin.


  2. "My career has progressed well and my hard work continues to be acknowledged with promotion."

    Pros

    Opportunity to be exposed to business practices all over the world and learn. Although it is a high revenue company it operates as a mid-size public co so some of the approval layers have been removed. People are very financially capable and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    There are more approval layers/requirements than in smaller companies or non-publically traded companies so if you are coming from that perspective it could be frustrating to go through the approval process.
