    Pros

    Tech Data has some of the best people to work with in the Tampa Bay area. The difficulties with the newer management in the company has been detrimental in keeping key employees.

    Cons

    Poor management. Management positions are filled with people without the basic understanding of their job. They also lay-off their seasoned employees to back fill with cheaper employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tech Data has some great employees that are more than qualified to hold key management positions. Tech Data's policy is to promote or hire management based on years of school completed, regardless of the type of degree. They have actually hired management with no work experience over employees with several years experience.

    Pros

    Management is great about balancing work and personal. There are great perks depending upon the vendor you are aligned with and there are many opportunities to hone your professional skills (i.e. Presentations, travel, etc). The benefits package is pretty decent, you receive a weeks pay from day one, health benefits at 90 days, discounted profit sharing, and 401K matching. Most companies out there are still cutting back on benefits and it was nice that TD brought them back.

    Cons

    Upper management seems disconnected with what is actually needed from middle management. There are many teams that seem to be underwhelmed and many that are overwhelmed. It seems that this could be better balanced so none are left shorthanded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make investments in the company IT infrastructure and the support teams so that you don't pay a PSC $50K a year to process orders.
