    I worked at SYNNEX full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, the only positive thing .

    Cons

    Looooong hours , no training, no IT support , English is a second language , communication is nearly impossible. WMS is extremely outdated and not user friendly. You are on salary and are pretty much required to work 11+ hour days for little pay. Babysitting a bunch of $10 hr workers whom you can hardly communicate with.

    Pros

    Many good people
    Fun, laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    Expect too much from one employee
    Good old boy system - very political

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow your people to get witch hunted due to personal or political drama. Push for more competitive salaries for non sales positions. Don't tell employees that they must operate at 110% at all times to be an average employee.

    Pros

    The only pro is that you're paid weekly.

    Cons

    The management/supervisors is/are ignorant of what troubleshooting is, how it works, and what it takes to find errors. Their only concern is that "the numbers look good" for output. They're not even rated on how many failures happen and come back, so of course their only concern is pure output numbers since it does them no harm to keep sending out faulty servers because it's the repair tech they can always throw under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Get knowledgeable leadership from the quality assurance and training team who actually care about the product they are producing.

    Pros

    Commission can be good if you hit goal. Win many trips and tickets to events. Profit sharing and 401k match

    Cons

    Goals can get unreasonable at times. Spiffs are capped. Can't work from home. Can be stressful and demanding at times.

    Advice to Management

    Give back the spiffs and don't cap them

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

    Pros

    Management is flexible with work hours. High stability/job security and the company continues to grow with quarter to quarter profitability, Fortune 500 company. Accessibility of senior management and executives. decent health and child-care benefits (though 401k is subpar), no micromanagement

    Cons

    The biggest issues are as follows: Salary is not competitive with the current market, in fact it is at the very bottom end of the spectrum. Lack of growth and career advancement for someone looking to move up within the company. Stuck with an old school style of business, lacking a rich company culture in any sense of the word (9-5 clock in and out). Low morale, pretty much every long term employee is just stuck on complacency mode and not really looking to improve the work or the company culture.

    Other issues involve: Lack of mentoring or even basic training for employees. Operation processes are very manual, lacking efficiency. Most processes involve internally built computer software/programs that lack innovation--can hinder growth if you're looking to learn, especially if you plan to one day move to another company that uses a widely accepted/distributed platform or software. No remote (work from home) opportunities (old school mentality).

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees and management. Invigorate your employees and promote growth, they will help your company flourish.

    Pros

    Synnex is a diverse and family oriented type of company. They are very active and involved in the upstate area of South Carolina.

    Cons

    Outside of not having adequate security on the premises i can honestly say that i have no bad things to say about the company.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest management to get to know their employees on a more personal level to help increase the family/team environment.

    Pros

    The pay was decent while it lasted.

    Cons

    There's to much gossip and one-sided politics. The rollover period takes entirely too long. Temps or expendables are treated with very little respect.
