    Spend a TAD more explaining the long-term, big picture benefit to the work. It's good, honest work and we want to know what real-world benefit we are providing.

    I worked at Ingram Micro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a job and it pays the bills

    Cons

    Underpaid for the market, lack of organizational focus, no common mission, lack of communication, leadership in constant flux.

    Advice to Management

    Show loyalty to your employees, pay them a competitive market rate, communicate more, forecast budgets based on fact and not speculation so that you can stop reducing headcount in the pursuit of the bottom line, invest in your people and infrastructure and not shiny offices.

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

    Pros

    Great people. Very much like a family type culture. Lots of support and encouragement from upper levels and opportunities for training and growth if you want it. Casual Fridays are great, and some managers let you work from home a day or two a week.

    Cons

    Need to relax on PTO as we are all adults and everyone is connected 24/7 almost with smart phones. So, shouldn't require a PTO day for one off doc appointments, etc. as long as there aren't any perf issues.

    Advice to Management

    Remember we're all adults.

    - Free parking

    Cons

    - There is no transparency into projects being worked on below the management level
    - High turnover in the Buffalo office
    - Some of the Managers act more like a dictator than more supportive
    - Nobody takes ownership of anything
    - Deadlines are arbitrary and very concrete

    Advice to Management

    Look over your managers and hire people that actually want to cultivate the lesser persons skills versus just make them produce by a given deadline.

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

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to different OEMs and customer Types. Great people who are very passionate about their jobs.

    Cons

    The past few years, there is essentially no formal training given to new hires. New associates are often baptized by fire without being ready to do their jobs. I have seen several employees quit within a year of joining the organization out of frustration at their lack of training. Also, a poor Work-Life balance is common. Ingram supports West Coast customers so associates on West Coast teams are expected to work until 8:00PM with no increase in salary over the folks that leave at 5:30PM.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the formal training to equip new hires with the tool they need for the job.
