Shipping (Former Employee) – North Carolina – May 24, 2016
Good at train at moving people around to learn different things. But sometimes they do have lack of communication. I did enjoy the hours and the money. Learned bout doing shipping out and small pack. Some co-workers where not very friendly .
Company is only focused on themselves and will always look out for themselves before their employees. The people at the company (my peers) are also a hit or a miss. Some are really great people but most of them reflect the company mind set of them against the world and will run over you in the process.
Account Executive - West (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – February 3, 2016
Company is passionate about technology, customer service and market share growth in US. Management is multi-cultural with many IBM (Thinkpad) executives influencing the US consumer business. Most challenging aspect of being an Account Executive, is driving towards the companies asperational growth goals while in a declining category (PC's in general).

China based company with little US knowledge / understanding
I was part of sale of IBM System X to Lenovo. I worked for Lenovo during which Lenovo changed strategies several times. Upper management seemed more concern about current profitability vs. having a long term vision.
I did not see micromanagement during my stay at Lenovo and Lenovo did sink some money into training us on current products. Job stability, innovation was not a priority as "business" decisions to pick low cost products and cut work force currently prevalent.
Micromanagement kept to minimum. Job Training provided on current Lenovo Products.
Highly motivated atmosphere with lots of incentives to win win win
Senior Inside Sales Representative, NA eCommerce (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – January 5, 2016
A typical day at work included the morning huddle discussing any new news or product release or training. Jumping in the queue pumped ready to make some money! Previously I was never a techie person and really had basic knowledge of computers until I began working at Lenovo. We are provided with continuous product training but a true self starter and computer salesperson keeps themselves up informed about the new technology on the market. The hardest part of the job would be the things you cannot control such as supply issues, delayed orders and over selling on a product. Great atmosphere, motivated managers and coaches and onsite gym.
Generally a good place to work. But company is constantly looking to outsource existing skills to China. Company seems to place more value and emphasis on acquiring technology and intellectual property than it's people. 401k plan not so good.
Reasonable work environment if you don't mind open workspace architecture
Constant concerns over resource actions and job outsourcing to China
Great place to gain expierience working for a global company.
(BT) IT Project Manager (Former Employee) – Morrisville, NC – December 20, 2015
Great place to gain expierience working for a global company. A typical work day begins early in the morning and ends late at night. My co-workers are very hard workers and we work together as a team very well. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with people that I genuinely liked.
