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

    Pros

    Large company, but with a start-up feeling in most departments. Strong leadership at most upper levels. Very ethical company that does a lot for the community. Strong company values hold true throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Margin compression has trained most managers to offer less than market salaries. A lot of old antiquated systems, needs modernization.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the core like Amazon! With that, our culture would surpass them!

    Pros

    Working in your department feels like a family. I've been in two units and have had that same experience. I'm close to my team members and have that small company feel but I get the benefits of a huge workplace. They start you off at 15 days of PTO, there's several options for health insurance, (I pay $10 a week for a good family plan with $2600 deductible), super low cost vision and dental (only a few dollars or in some cases even cents), 401k with matching, and more. And all benefits are effective from day one (although you have to wait three months before using pto). That's a huge plus if you have a family.

    Some managers are better than others, but they vet management candidates very thoroughly so it's rare to hear of a bad manager. If you don't like your manager, just live with it until you can post into another position. Ingram is such a huge company you'll have a lot of opportunity.

    Cons

    I took a severe pay cut to move to Ingram. The benefits help make up for that, but I can't pay my student loans with dental insurance. Pay is low across the board (15/hr for a candidate who can write VBA programs when other local companies offer data entry positions at the same rate is frustrating) and if you accept a pay cut to enter the company, it will haunt you for your entire career there. When you apply for a higher grade position they add a certain percentage to your current pay and expect you to be happy. Always negotiate your entry pay and promotion pay (raises can't really be negotiated).

    There's also a lack of mobility. You're locked in to each new position for at least a year. In that time you're not eligible to apply for a different position. I've seen some truly great candidates be passed over for much needed promotions and someone else who isn't as qualified/experienced be selected. Some managers may also use write ups to lock you in for 6 months. Even if you trust your manager, don't discuss your plans to move to another team until you've been instructed to by your recruiter. Managers get nervous when they have a lot of people leaving, so they're under pressure to keep you in place.

    Pros

    Fair pay, on site cafeteria, plenty of opportunity to grow, decent benefits

    Have the higher ups connect with everyone, get a better understanding of the market before setting goals
