    Pros

    Great experience to get your foot in the door in the IT industry. Excellent networking opportunities. Awesome incentives for sales reps keep the job exciting and fun. Catered training and happy hours multiple times a week. No cold calling!

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be difficult to maintain. Base salary is low, so it can be a struggle to make ends meet when you are just starting out. Majority of compensation is through commission and bonuses, which you won't see much of in the first few months, and your success will heavily depend upon the accounts you end up with. Management culture is a little old school/rigid, not as open/flexible as other IT companies or start-ups. Only 2 weeks of paid vacation. No gym.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and bonus structure. Can learn a lot in the distribution field if you apply yourself.

    Cons

    Pay is well below market in management as well as hourly. It took over a year to push hr to increase hourly pay for the employees to be more competitive and they didn't even raise it to the market rate. Senior/executive management fails to listen to their ops managers and directors when it comes to issues and improvements that should be made. If not challenged, and looking to advance with more responsibility executive management does not listen well or look to progress managers.

    Advice to Management

    If ops management, director, ops managers etc. are looking to advance and grow with the company do everything you can to advance them or your retention rate and tenure will be poor. Some of the largest and most successful companies comes from having tenured people that the company invests in. Also, listen to,your managers and directors. Take their advice. Try new things. Without that you will continue to have poor morale which is not good for a large technology company that is involved with acquisitions and looking to grow.

    "operations manager"

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

    Pros

    • Good working hours for particular location, larger distribution centers work a lot of OT and often on weekends
    • support departments have been very helpful
    • decent health benefits and offers a bonus structure

    Cons

    • Salary for position is well below market value, raise this year was half of previous years even with same high productivity numbers
    • lack of promotion opportunities to progress career
    • as an operations manager or supervisor you’re expected to be on call 24/7, 365 for security issues – get called in the middle of the night and have to go to building to reset security alarm
    • company is trending to hire externally for management positions as opposed to promoting internal top performers

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to look at local and national averages of salary and realize they offer well below market value, if they offered at least equal salary they can retain top performers and recruit top tier employees. Promote employees that perform at high levels and who are looking to progress their career, if you’re looking for career progression in distribution center management Synnex does not offer many opportunities to advance from the position you’re hired in as – if you are someone who only wants the position you are currently in and don’t want to advance you’ll be happy here. Overall a good company, but with low pay for the responsibilities of a manager and a lack of long term career advancement, I would not recommend seeking a management/supervisor role with Synnex in distribution – even if you wait out those in positions you’re looking to obtain, you will probably be passed over for an external candidate which I’ve personally experienced.
