    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...

    I have been working at SYNNEX full-time

    Pros

    Very stable, opportunities for motivated employees. Doesn't have layoffs and very few employees really get fired. Good location by Pacific Commons shopping.

    Cons

    Pay is low-average for this market, perks are few, office decor is very boring. Few programs for fun/morale. Old school "work from the office only" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Flex working arrangements are common at most tech companies in the area. Employees will leave to get better work-life balance. Try doing activities that are fun, the culture is plain & boring.

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

    Pros

    Being around new tech daily is a big pro. It helps you stay up to date on everything coming out and also keeps you from being the average consumer yourself with the great employee discounts on products. The hours are not crazy the managers do not micro manage or breath down your neck. The place is very clean even without 5S the VP to President level employees are not pretentious and actually speak to their people even Kevin M if you catch him outside. You may not be always recognized but you are rarely ignored.

    Cons

    The pay is not that great. The raises are not that great. The profit share is ok but only given out once per year so that is not that great. This is a company driven by selling product so do not expect for a manufacturing job to mean anything to them they have not yet grasped the concept of manufacturing but are getting there. Do not expect to come here and learn anything new you better be well trained before you get here because the employees who were already here are not and the company will not provide them with training so do not and I mean do not expect to grow your knowledge one iota here you better come fully equipped or you will be disappointed. Unless you are willing to wait 5-7 years for a promotion do not expect one whatever you come in at is what you leave at. If you do get a bump or promotion it will be your last one for a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time.

    Advice to Management

    I see that you are putting forth effort to make changes and to move this company forward and I love it. Some people expect for things to change overnight but that is impossible. Just keep improving and keep bringing dynamic opportunities to your people and we will do the same. I cannot say that you are unfair because that would be dishonest so keep treating your employees fairly.

    Pros

    Positive work environment. Good people. Sales environment is positive and the background support is top notch.

    Cons

    Management was not professional. 4 hours out a 8 hour day of cold calls, with daily reports. The leads are similar to dialing out of a phone book. Cold Leads.

    Advice to Management

    Do not promote top sales workers to management, vet their management skills first. Just because they have a strong sales role is not commensurate with management skills.

    I worked at SYNNEX full-time

    Pros

    Many long time employees, culture is employee friendly, having positive revenues for a long time

    Cons

    Long hours, salaries are below industry, large company that is run still like a medium size/small company people wearing more than one hat and understaffed
