I worked at Tech Data full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Moderate salary allows for survival when you don't hit 100% bonus. It's easy to be promoted if you start at the bottom. Your skills and talent will outshine a lack of degree or other shortcomings. You're given ownership of your sales cycle and marketing in some cases.

Cons

Politics come before all else; If you play the game and make friends with everyone, you'll be just fine. Your success and enjoyment of the position really depends on your team, manager and who you interact with on a daily basis. It's a campus of 2,500 people, so it's easy to get lost in the shuffle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't freak out about phone stats. Track your PSCs by their goal achievement and don't worry about whether it's coming by e-mail, IM or phone. Not all of our customers enjoy being interrupted by a phone call when they asked for an e-mail.

    I have been working at Tech Data full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and great work enviornment. The executive are very approachable and easy to work with while having high expectations. Great opportunities to broaden your skills and knowledge.

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement. In some departments there is no opportunity for advancement. Although they are aware of the problem nothing is done to create opportunities for high-potential employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote the career opportunities and announce internal promotions. For those areas with limited to no career advancement the management/executive team needs design career opportunities now to retain high potential employees.

    Pros

    TD is really good at training employees. They have an excellent tutuition reimbursement program. They do a great job at following a succession planning program.

    Cons

    This is one company that specializes on manager churning. Instead, of working to develop they believe in throat slashing. This is really detremental to the associates and inhibits the change process or any process from moving forward.
