    Pros

    Close team environment even if you work remotely.
    Compensation is fair and stability is much greater than other organizations within the channel. Tenure of folks within Synnex is typically 4x-5x the length to other organizations.

    Cons

    Very difficult to be promoted from inside sales to field sales position, although it is possible.

    I worked at SYNNEX full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Management, great sales interaction with the Vendors, BD's, Marketing people and all of the inside sales reps, and Synnex always encouraged you to come forward with your ideas and suggestions to help make improvements.

    Cons

    I can not really think of anything at all to say that's negative about this company. They are very ethical, always do what's best for their customer and genuinely seem to care about their employees and family.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work guys, your attention to the greater good of the company and developing a culture that fosters strong sales development has not gone unnoticed.

    I have found SYNNEX to promote a collaborative type environment and encourage out of the box type thinking from their employees They offer annual performance reviews and career stability. I have found the SYNNEX team members to be wonderful to work with. I enjoy all the fun activities they hold for their employees and the charity events they support .

    Cons

    Salaries need to be more competitive.

    Pros

    There's free food a lot from the Marketing Department programs. The benefits are pretty bangin' also.

    Cons

    The hours are 8:00 - 5:00 or 8:30 - 5:30, so if you're coming off of a job with really flexible hours i.e. restaurant, hotel, etc (like I did) the change of work hours is going to be killer. Also, if you want a standing desk, you have to get a doctor's note and wait on TSG/IT to get you one. The wait is pretty long...

    Pros

    If you have the right mindset, you will do very well here
    It's a fun place to work
    You can succeed but you need to ask for help sometimes

    Cons

    Pay is about average
    If you don't have the right mindset you'll hate it

    Advice to Management

    What advice can I give to a management team that has been profitable since the last days of the Reagan administration?

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

    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.
