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

    Pros

    They reward employees. Trips, food, swag. I had a great manager that really made this experience awesome.

    Cons

    Cons are working in cubicals, and of course having to hit an unrealistic number in sales. But if you work hard, stay on the phones and make your outbounds (in other words, you try), then you'll be just fine.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to work 4 ten hour shifts. (This was my primary reason for leaving.) This company could make it work and I believe that it would increase productivity. Have team members select a set day off. This would work with 3 man+ teams. I know this is something that would be have to be dealt with my other people than the sales managers, but just wanted to bring it out. My family life and spirituality are more important to me than my job, which is why I needed that extra day off during the week. Thanks for a great couple of years at SYNNEX.

    Pros

    It's traditional whole sales business and very stable business, the management team is very good and people don't feel so much pressure.

    Cons

    It's not IT driven company although ERP is the core function for this company. Business process is not well defined and IT doesn't look like "IT", it's more IT support.

    Advice to Management

    Let technical people to handle IT problem rather than business. Business define their requirement and IT need to implement the requirements rather than business define how IT implement the requirements.
