    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at a number of companies and culture is the most important to me. I want to work with a group that is pushing each other, collaborating, having fun, taking chances and empowering its employees. Thankfully I found Ingram's Business Intelligence department (well, they found me). It is a start-up like environment where projects move fast, work evolves daily, collaboration is a requirement and fun is ingrained in the culture.

    Cons

    Would prefer that vacation and sick leave were in their own buckets, but minimal gripe.

    I worked at Ingram Micro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros for working at Ingram Micro. Only way you'll do well is if you're part of the sorority-esque clique.

    Cons

    Where to start?
    1. Management (at every level) is completely unqualified to fill a management role. Either they have no education, no formal training, or have no idea about the business. Worst case scenario, they are all of the above.
    2. No respect for employees. If you don't fit in with the right clique, your life will be miserable. And fitting in has absolutely nothing to do with the job you do and your qualifications.
    3. You will be told to fake contracts just to bring in the revenue. If you say no, you're not a team player. Advice - don't ever fake contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Management is beyond the point of no return. My advice to prospective and current employees, get out while you still can. Ingram Micro will never change its ways.
