I worked at Tech Data full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits start from day one. Good infrastructure as opposed to other business in the Tampa Bay area.

Cons

They know they have a good infrastructure compared to other companies in the Tampa Bay area. Because they are "Self aware,",they think they have your ass over a barrel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They won't listen. You open your mouth and offer advice they see that as a threat and you will be put on a plan that is impossible to get off. You can perform your job perfectly and follow a plan verbatim and they will still fire you. I was not fired but I saw this done. The management are cowards and crooks.

    I worked at Tech Data full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive and while I worked on the "business side" I was afforded ample opportunity for growth and allowed to develop tools that helped make my job and my teammates' jobs easier.

    Cons

    IT Department takes tremendous pride in NOT spending it's training budget. When we requested training, we were told to "buy a book" even though the training was essential for my team to grow into new opportunities. IT suffers from a "done is better than perfect" mentality that results in the users getting much less than they actually need, and applications that sit unused for years because they don't meet the requirements of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Business Analysts to ensure that IT meets the needs of the actual users and make departments use their training budgets to train people.
