    The people are great

    Jan 11, 2016 - Sales in Buffalo, NY

    Pros

    Most associates have a very high work ethic and are very supportive of one another. People stay at the company for a long time so you have a chance to develop strong relationships. A lot of freedom to make your own decisions and be innovative.

    Cons

    Compensation is below market and opportunities to advance in the sales organization are very limited. Recent cost cutting measures have drastically reduced support organizations. Upper management, once very approachable, now seems out of touch with the frontline associates. Systems and processes are very manual and outdated.

    Pros

    Fortune 100 company w/ opportunities to transfer to other locations.

    Cons

    Touchstone Wireless management philosophy still in effect at the Fort Worth location. Upper management is too busy with trying to tell everyone else how to do their jobs and not focusing on doing their own job to the best of their ability, thus the operations suffer from poor support.

    Could be worse

    Pros

    The pro's of working for Ingram are that the salary is good for my career. They also have benefits that start the first day of employment, and that can be quite helpful.

    Cons

    The company recently decided to move the Home Office, and in doing so they have elected to move to a location that is not very workable for the lower level employees. Its beautiful, however not useable. Also, it feels like Ingram always chooses to err on the side of upper management. It is very Old Boy Network.

    Pros

    You'll meet lifelong friends here. You'll also learn as much about the business as you desire. Opportunity to build great connections in the industry. Benefits package is pretty good comparatively speaking. You can move up fast in the lower levels if you work hard.

    Cons

    I spent many years at Ingram Micro. I truly enjoyed most of my time there. Unfortunately over the past few years the company has really gone down hill. The politics are out of control. I really don't understand (and I don't think most do) why they got rid of some great executive leadership, but kept others that already have problems with their ethics and reputation. HR actively protects bad leaders by pushing out employees with trumped up charges. Basically, they don't have the courtesy of laying you off if they can fire you over a minor grievance such as taking a personal call at work). The marketing department is now full of executive leadership that refuses to deal with problems that have existed for many years. If you dare question why these issues aren't addressed or if you even provide an alternative idea, you are placed on the naughty list. The middle management of the department specifically tells their staff to not voice complaints to upper management. The executive management team in marketing has lost almost all respect from their fellow IM execs. I don't think marketing has launch one major program that was priced for the market or launched on time. This results in low trust from the vendors and cross functional teams like sales and vendor management. But they will continue to produce low value/high cost programs because they value margin above all else.

    Pros

    Major IT distributor, can make great contacts with your vendors and reseller partners. If you have a good vendor can get a lot of free stuff.

    Cons

    Frequent lay offs, CEO and upper management caring more for their pockets then their employees. More opportunities for career advancement.

    Great Experience

    Pros

    Great environment! Moral was high, was able to work on a variety of interesting and stimulating projects...The time generally flew by. Also, the office was generally well organized and efficiently run-there was little wasted time or excessive sloppiness. Co-workers were easy to get along with, too.

    Cons

    Seemed to be little for advancement and few opportunities to distinguish yourself. Management seemed disinterested in your input too often as well. Seemed to be a disconnect between upper management and entry level employees.

    Pros

    Choice of benefits but they are very expensive.

    Cons

    They treat their employees like slaves.They do not pay a living wage. Ingram Micro bought them and you would think a fortune 72 company could pay their employees a decent wage but think again. Ingram pays their Ingram employees more than they pay CloudBlue employees. They do not pay you appropriately for your job responsibilities. No opportunities to advance or grow. They see you as expendable and treat you as such. Management and upper management are a joke! Do not cosider for employment!

    Great perks but no upward mobility.

    Pros

    Great perks such as an on-site fitness center. A lot of team building exercises which is actually fun.

    Cons

    Everyone spends too much time patting themselves in their backs about the business that was handed to them. The upper management have no real world selling experience because they tend to hire people straight out of college, underpay them which in the long run hurts the business. They need to bring in people with experience not just a college degree.

    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.
