Great place to learn 2 tier distribution and make multiple vendor contacts but long term prospects are slim.

I worked at Tech Data

Pros

Access to top industry vendors to network with. Some great people to work with. Free software and hardware giveaways for product management and sales. Vendor sponsored concerts, sporting events and dinners.

Cons

High turnover of employee's at all levels because of pay and overall negative atmosphere. Promotion in product management positions not based on performance but on if TD can get a vendor to fund the spot. Many employee's not willing to put in extra effort but to just work the eight hours they're paid for. Selling based on price not on value add.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more with your line level employee's and be more accessible.

    I worked at Tech Data

    Pros

    Big company where you can meet life long friends. Lots of perks from the vendors you work with: sports tickets, dinners, outings, etc. Meet a lot of high up VP, Presidents, etc of major corporations.

    Cons

    My manager changed 5 times in less than 3 years. Promoting is only when something is available and is usually given by seniority versus talent and hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with your employees more and talk about and work with them on their career path at Tech data.

    Steer clear, Ground Hog day meets 7th grade and don't forget the bus as someone throws you under it.

    I have been working at Tech Data

    Pros

    convienant to home, great excuse for not having a home life, bonuses to Sr. management, no two days ever the same.

    Cons

    narcissistic micromanagment, a technology company using antiquanted technology, lack of communication from corprate down and director down, company value statement is not worth the paper it is printed on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managment by this weeks trend, then next weeks trend does not establish trust in managment or stability, constant smiling faces do not equate to happy employees.
