Tech Data: Unless you're senior management already, why bother?

Receiving Associate (Former Employee)
South Bend, IN

I worked at Tech Data

ProsDecent place to work if you have little or no prior experience and need as much per hour as possible. Fairly recession proof it seems.

ConsLittle or no room for advancement, especially without a degree of some kind -- no matter what kind of experience you may have. Little to no incentive for best effort and/or high level of quality in your job. Keep your head down and work to the lowest possible expectation, and even then, if you've been there too long and make too much they will find a reason to replace you with someone who they can hire to work for less money than you.

Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle management is a farce. The company talks about high level of standard and working to people's best ability, but instead it seems like middle management wants to work people harder to make up for lack of quality.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not as expected

I worked at Tech Data

ProsDecent benefits packages that can be affordable including the return of the partial 401k match. There are many nice people and working with a good team made it a generally nice place to be.

ConsPeople are Nita's smart as they think they are. Low salaries make it difficult to draw from the world-wide talent that is out there.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on trining pope from the beginning, so that everyone is on the same age and working twrd achieving the same goal.

Tech Data used to be a place I enjoyed working, now it's just a paycheck, a pitiful one at that.

Logistics Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Tech Data

ProsGreat place to learn how not to treat employees
Great place to learn the distribution and logistics business
Great place to start your career - but don't stay too long

ConsSr. Leadership doesn't the path of desctruction they are leaving behind. They take hourly employees for granted and use people to do their dirty work.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't take employees and lower level managers for granted, they are your assets, not your door mats. They can help make the company succeed or fail.
