Was once a good company - stay away from Vendor Management
Buyer (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 November 2016
Was once a good company, now you are just a number. Senior staff in vendor managment spiteful, don't promote, not knowledgeable. They don't listen to employee's, they put their needs 1st.

No work life balance, Don't appreciate tenured employee's.
Pros

Cons
senior management, boys club

Worst place to work!
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 November 2016
They will work you until you bleed between September and January.They will give you as many hours as allowed by law. Come January they offer you a 3 month contract, if you're lucky then tell you its slow and they have to reduce your hours to 5 or 6 from 8 until they can you at the end of the contract.

Management walks around watches people then sends supervisors to annoy you.

Best part of the day was when the shift ended.
Pros
Nothing to speak of
Cons
over bearing annoying warehouse manager

Large Global company with a very structured working environment.
Vice President (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON1 July 2016
Large global company competing in a very competitive distribution environment. Very P&L focused with weekly reviews on performance vs plan. Recent global re-structuring has lost focus in some of the key strategic pillars of growth. Company was just purchased by a large Chinese company.
Pros
Good working environment
Cons
Week country Leadership.

Fast pace, constant changing and competitive business environment
Senior Manager of Accounts Payable (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 September 2015
The company grew in ten years from $250M to $2B in sales. That pace of grwoth created opportunities for personal development and career advancement. Overtime we lost the benefits of the intimacy of the small group to an expanse global corporate structure. That was not all bad because a lot of subject matter experts had the privilege to work in other countries to share their expertise and gain a wealth of knowledge from the other side.

Some of my fondest memories include the annual picnics, exposure to the different cultures of the countries to which I traveled and the fun we shared at the offsite department lunches. As well as the interaction with my vendor partners.
Pros
The rewarding opportunities to develop and utilize my knwoledge and skills
Cons
The stress from the constant pressure to meet the corporate financial objectives

Good overall company to work for
Market development specialist (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 June 2016
Good company to work for if you are in the right department and working for the right manager. Too much micro management and lack of training. Some managers are better than others. I wish they all had similar style of training and work ethics.
Pros
More than 3 week vacation to begin with
Cons
Bad management

Do not always treat staff fairly in regards to position or salary
Jr Managment (Current Employee) –  ON16 October 2015
Most of the staff are over worked, very underpaid and have little Senior Management support.
There is not much room for advancement, nor is any one encouraged to do so. This company seems to be more about the numbers in this transition and care less about proper job title/responsibilities/salary alignments.
Good points are the co-workers that are still there are great people.
Pros
Good people for the most part
Cons
very poor support from senior level management or HR

Sales Support Representative II (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 January 2016
Nice co-workers, friendly environment.

I learned how to multi-task to the max.
Most enjoyable part of my job was the vendor and customer interaction.

Hardest part was trying to fit in personal development admin work into a 8 hour day.

Typical day was reviewing e-mails, reporting and open orders.
Interaction with vendors, suppliers and customers to ensure ontime delivery and SLAS were met.
Pros
Free Lunches, Dinners
Cons
Long Hours for Quarter Ends

Fast pace, completive business sector and constantly changing demands
Senior Manager of Accounts Payable (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 October 2015
In response to the expulsive growth of the computer and technology information (IT) industry beginning in the early 1990’s, the company grew rapidly. The competitive nature of the distribution business demanded constant changes in order to differentiate and take advantage of market share. The environment was challenging but also provided the opportunity personal development and career advancement. Management was very supportive of associate’s development through training and promotion.

Then came the decline in the computer and IT sector which lead to reduced profit margins, the need to outsource and lay-offs. Those of us who were fortunate to retain our jobs had the benefit to travel for work to train and develop associates in other regions and cultures.

Work/life balance was a major challenge, more so with the advent of laptop and cellphone, but I enjoyed every aspects of the job. I looked forward daily to the interaction with my colleagues and vendor representation to resolve issues. Although some of the trips were gruesome, I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the cultural exchanges. The most fulfilling part of the job was training, coaching and mentoring: especially new hires, the outsource providers and co-op students.
Pros
Variety of things to do, opportunity to develop new skills, latitude to be innovative and non-combative working environment
Cons
Competitive nature of the business, corporate objectives demand and job uncertainity.

A fast paced IT sales environment with excellent co-workers.
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON23 September 2013
Ingram Micro works with the vendors and sales reps to ensure employees are trained in many areas of the IT industry. Regular training sessions are part of your work week done either first thing in the morning or at lunchtime.

The job is very detailed oriented and requires great organization. Lots of perks for the sales reps.

As an Account Executive you manage your own accounts, however, there is a team environment. Co workers are always happy to help which is invaluable in such a busy work day.

The challenge in this position is time management. There are service levels to be met for your customers and sometimes that can get hectic.

Despite being a very busy day, employees receive lots of extras from various vendors. As well you are trained on the latest in products (software and hardware). Lots of incentives.

A great bunch of people to work with.

Having worked at this company for 10 years, I learned a tremendous amount of product knowledge.
Pros
Lots of training and promotions for the employees
Cons
Long hours and at times tight deadlines
