I worked at Tech Data

Pros

I was offered the opportunity to carry out an internship within one of Tech Data's business units. The place is like a revolving door, with a high turnover rate within every department you look at. My boss was only two months into his position when I joined, and he delegated the task of overseeing my work to a young lady who had been there for a little over ten months, and she was already considered a senior employee by their standards!

I interacted with several people at several levels, ranging from highly self-disciplined professionals to not-so-talented rif raf.

This is an ok place for networking. An advantage of working for TD is that you happen to be up to date with latest trends of the market. A con is that if you don't have the vision, you may end up stuck there spinning your wheels forever.

Cons

One big con is the attitude of management. I got the sense that they were not up to the challenge. My boss never sat down with me, and all I received was his total indifference, from the beginning to the end. There wasn't even common courtesy or politeness. Very rude guy. Once I finished my internship I got a much better offer from much better and decided to move on, a career is too much of a precious asset to let it stall like that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The CEO is a very nice guy, as much as some other members of senior management, but that is not enough. They need to re-connect with reality, and be aware that the reason things are not working is the human factor. Their best people is fleeing and they are being replaced it with mediocre managers.

    I have been working at Tech Data

    Pros

    Still employed. Compensation and perks from the VENDORS but little from Tech Data.

    Cons

    Short staffed, low pay, overworked under appreciated. High management turn over. Little or no opportunity for a promotion. They are off shoring jobs to Costa Rica.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue! You are losing good people left and right and trying to replace them with hourly paid temps so you can keep your bonus.

    I worked at Tech Data

    Pros

    progressive company that always stays on or above the trends

    Cons

    like anywhere, if you get a manager who isn't supportive, you need to look elsewhere in the company or outside the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make sure your managers are knowledgeable about the department and skills of the team in that department
