    I have been working at Ingram Micro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a decent stepping stone to your next employer, but only because of the contacts you'll make with both reseller partners and vendors. These contacts will at least provide options when you're ready to move on.

    Cons

    Hypocrisy and incompetence at its finest. Despite a couple good managers, most do not know how to perform the very jobs they oversee. There are several people, both managers and non-managers, that will take credit for your work on a regular basis. These same people will also point the finger at anyone but themselves for their own failures.

    What's even more insulting is the constant talk about the company values and how the employees are family. Company executives continue to disprove this statement as they continue to outsource jobs to third world countries in order to save on the costs of employment.

    Furthermore, I have witnessed on several occasions the management receive complaints of harassment or discrimination, only to take action against the very employees reporting these incidents.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending to have your employees' best interest in mind. Update the legacy systems. And take your employees' advice on how to optimize varying processes, they know their own jobs much better than you pretend to.
