    Pros

    Fun environment

    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

    Pros

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

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

    I worked at Ingram Micro full-time

    Pros

    The people, and a pretty loose culture

    Lots of inside politics, and inability to work from home

    Let people work from home once in a while, yeesh..

    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time

    Pros

    Time off and laid back atmosphere make this a dream job. The associates are nice and work hard. The management group, sups and lower managers, are close.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between upper management and lower management needs work. Some days there are several different ideas of what is going on and some times you will not know if something has changed.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate changes and intentions. Let operations run the operation instead of allowing support departments dictate operations.

    I worked at Ingram Micro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None. Too much corporate BS. Promised pay raises and nothing happened. I did like my direct supervisor. I hope he found a better job after I left.

    Cons

    Too many to mention. Purchased the company I worked for and turned a great sales office with great people in to a call center. Got rid of our Technicians and replaced them with a call center from India.

    Advice to Management

    Anything I say would fall to deaf ears.
