    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good place to gain experience fast but not a good long term option.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, work life balance is terrible, reliance on old mainframe. Pay is good but work hours are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    The strategy of buying companies to keep the business going is not working. You need to improve the core business including IS systems.

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

    Pros

    Great people and an over-abundance amount of food.

    Cons

    Promotions and raises are slow. If you commit 10-15 years you can make a decent living but everything is truly vendor dependent. Some vendors are extremely hard to work for. Truly take the time to understand why a position is available and who you are working with. The turnover rate is shockingly high. I did not expect that from a fortune 500 company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in human capital. Spend less on food. The amount of food wasted is disgustingly high.

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

    Pros

    Good people, opportunities to network,
    Good development opportunities if you take advantage of them or are a women, contribute a lot to charity

    Cons

    Very numbers driven, too much drama, favorites are played, don't help find new positions that fit employee skill set, pay isn't a lot when you are expected to work all the time if you are salaried

    Advice to Management

    Put people in positions they will succeed if they aren't, loose good people from being over worked and underpaid
