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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to move around within the company. Peers are extremely helpful when you're new to the company. I am in sales so there are a lot of small perks that get thrown my way.

    Cons

    Formal training for sales has got to be the number one complaint. The training is pretty much coaching by teammates which is fine but a formal training plan for various areas of the company would be much better for the company as a whole.

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

    Pros

    Benefits/competitive salary. Allow you to implement new ideas and processes if you can show the benefit. All holidays and suffecient PTO.

    Cons

    The hours management works is ridiculous. Expect to work 70 plus hours a week They get no support from upper management. HR does not work with management to resolve employee issues. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pick a direction and stick with it. Too many projects started and never finished. Constant juggling act of responsibility for front line management.

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

    Pros

    Large organization with upward mobility opportunity. They seem inclined to look internally to fill positions.

    Cons

    Small, 8ft tall cubicles. A lot of internal gossip. Mid-level managers under a lot a pressure to meet weekly numbers and have been know to throw team members under the bus. Old, dirty building.

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

    Pros

    There are no pros for working at Ingram Micro. Only way you'll do well is if you're part of the sorority-esque clique.

    Cons

    Where to start?
    1. Management (at every level) is completely unqualified to fill a management role. Either they have no education, no formal training, or have no idea about the business. Worst case scenario, they are all of the above.
    2. No respect for employees. If you don't fit in with the right clique, your life will be miserable. And fitting in has absolutely nothing to do with the job you do and your qualifications.
    3. You will be told to fake contracts just to bring in the revenue. If you say no, you're not a team player. Advice - don't ever fake contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Management is beyond the point of no return. My advice to prospective and current employees, get out while you still can. Ingram Micro will never change its ways.

    Pros

    A clean place to work and a Fortune 500.

    Cons

    No respect for employees. People get hired and fired every day. If the manager does not like your words or for any reason you get fired. No respect for your work and capabilities. Lots of gossips and no professionalism in some parts.

    Advice to Management

    People are not toys. If they work good keep them. Plan and do not change your way every other day! See who select as manager.

    Pros

    Great pay for the Buffalo area!

    Cons

    In my 6 year tenure I've been through 2 rounds of layoffs and a sale of a consumer electronics subsidiary that I worked closely with. Morale is LOW and management is BLIND to it, or they just don't care. The recent sale of Ingram to the Chinese conglomerate HNA has not helped as we are all just awaiting "our time".
