Pros

Decent salary, OK benefits on-site gym.

IT pros beware. Layoffs. Offshoring. Very high management turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Close the revolving door in IT management. No one likes a new boss every 6 months.

    Pros

    very good training ground for a career in IT industry. largest company in the area. you can establish great contacts with both customers and vendors for furture opportunities.

    Cons

    very low margin business forces a business model that is based on caution (ie: very structured, no risk taking) and a "do more with less" mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get more engaged with their front-line employees, live a day in their shoes to see what they are really faced with and better understand the impacts of their executive decisions.

    Not the worst place to work but nowhere near the best

    I worked at Tech Data

    Pros

    The previous review hit the nail on the head. It's a paycheck. Big company, so you can always find people you like and enjoy working with. It's good if you like a monotonous workplace. A negative to some, to be sure, but it is nice to always know what you're going to get. There are very few surprises.

    Cons

    For some reason a decent percentage of lower and mid-level management seem to be poorly suited for the job. My manager was friendly and positive, but clueless as to how I did my job. The pay is okay, but opportunities for advancement aren't as plentiful or fairly rewarded as you'll be told in the interview.

    There are A LOT of meetings and I swear I've been to meetings to discuss if there were too many meetings.

    It's not a bad place to work, but it really is a gray cubicle environment and that wore on me over time. When I put in my two weeks I had about half to 75% of the people I work with admit they hated their jobs and couldn't wait to go somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for managers with a high quit rate below them. There's probably a reason.
