Pros

Benefits are ok, some good people there as far as coworkers.

Cons

Slim chance of advancement, some mgt has their favorites and shows it openly, company does not show loyalty to low level employees, hr is no help at all, as one reviewer stated, be careful you will be eventually be ran over by a bus. somewhat of a good place to start but don't stay too long if no advancement. If the executives would really listen to lower level employees input this would be as great place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Executives should really listen to lower level employees input on mid-level mgt. Show loyalty to long term employees, improve HR, let job rotation be optional, STOP promoting low level employees to mgt with no mgt exp or people skills. Promote based on job performance and longevity not based off being the mgts favorite person on the team. Respect, Respect Respect goes a long way. Let lower level employees decide what the CMI should be based off of mgt's performance this might improve how mid-level mgt treats their team.

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

    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.

    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.
