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

    Pros

    Manageable stress level. Never had a direct manager who wasn't great, though I'm sure not everyone would say that. Clear expectations. Fair but not particularly great pay. Good training (wasn't always the case) but L&D is much better than it used to be. Development opportunities are plentiful, you just have to pursue them. Vendor partners, at least those I've worked with, are great. Lots of freebies. Bonus and spiff potential is good with most sales / market development positions. Lots of ways to make inroads with vendors and successfully go work for them in a sales capacity (which is where the big money is in the IT industry). A great stepping stone - lots of places to move up internally and in the industry.

    Cons

    Repetitive, boring work. Not intellectually stimulating in any way. You really have to pursue development opportunities and extra projects to stand out. Most managers are great, but some are notoriously dysfunctional and actively embrace favoritism (though that hasn't been my experience, but I've seen it). Archaic systems, confusing processes. Order fulfillment and cost adjustment processes are slow, can impact speed of sales cycle. Large organization, moves slow.

    Advice to Management

    Get cutting edge with IT infrastructure - we're a top company in the IT industry - let's look and operate like it! Pay a little better, too.

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

    Pros

    Great people, great relationships. PTO is solid. You can take your time when you need it.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. Lack of vision and direction by the CEO. Company values are just a chimera and a shell.

    Advice to Management

    Trying to decentralize the business model has created short-sidedness and country chief's making poor decisions for the company impacting working capitol. CFO is not privy to decisions since the country execs have autonomy in decisions and hence the problems of poor profit margins and excessive OpEx.

    Continued Education and on-site workshops and classes are amazing and help keep employees more engaged and in the know.
