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

    Pros

    Competitive Compensation & Benefit Programs, Excellent in Core Distribution Operations, in Transition following Acquisition by Chinese Conglomerate and Strategies to build technologies businesses.

    Cons

    Size and bureaucracy make dealing with mid-sized clients very challenging. Global focus is not well executed. Delivering services for clients that need well integrated multi-country coverage hits obstacles due to country managers running their own shows.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the bureaucracy. Get refocused on customers. Take advantage of the relief from US Public Company quarterly earnings focus to build long term sustainable distribution relationships throughout China as the "best" inroad for Western firms seeking access to China and the "best" inroad for Chinese firms needing an English access to succeed in the EU and American markets.

    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They're headquartered in sunny Southern California and have an office in Irvine that is 30 minutes from the beach.

    Cons

    Everything. The coffee is awful, the dress code is really professional (think finance), everything is silo'd like any other huge corporation. They have good people but you can easily sit next to someone and have no idea what they do. Others will nap in their cubes and nobody cares. Really cold and stagnant environment with a lot of older folks. Not a great place to work at all.

    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 a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay for the area, weekends off.

    Cons

    After an 8 hour day, you really don't feel like you did anything that mattered. Vendors are constantly snaking your deals. The job doesn't require a substantial amount of intellect.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your sales staff and genuinely try to fix whatever complaints that they may have.

    Need to understand our realistic day to day operations and that we can't be sales focused all the time when we have to handle support issues etc

    Plenty of interesting projects, dynamic teams, great communication, and positive work environment and culture.

    Cons

    Differences between business units. Countries operate independently. Lacks perks of smaller organizations (like free food, games, sponsored work parties etc)

    Advice to Management

    Keep creating value and listen to your employees. Invest more in people than acquisitions.

    Pros

    Health Benefits and vacation time

    Cons

    Allow gossip, drama, and favoritism. There's no training program and they run really LEAN.

    Advice to Management

    Didn't they fire all of the managers?
