Pros – The role depends on the line you're on. Some are more high call volume than others. I didn't have high call volumes, but a lots of orders. The pay is fair. Management also depends on what line you are on.
Cons – Advancement is difficult, and sometimes you get stuck on a team. End of quarter, you are expected to stay VERY late, sometimes past 1am, and also be expected to come in at your same time the next day.
Advice to Senior Management – Do more frequent reviews and have more structured guidlines.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Great learning experiences. Work load can get tough but definitely a benefit for future careers. Teaches you prioritization.

New order system sucks
Advice to Senior Management – Get rid of SAP
Pros – Most people are great to work with. Pay seems competitive, not so sure about medical benefits.
Cons – Like many large companies, everyone is doing more (or in some cases, a lot more) with less. Quality suffers, as does morale.
Advice to Senior Management – I can't say anything that hasn't been said before to the management team, and they're not the ones reading this, anyway.

Pros – Tech Data is generally a laid back place the workers are friendly. The building is conveniently located for most commuters.
Cons – Tech Data does not invest much in developing their employees. The pay is low even for Florida for most positions. The company did a salary survey, when the survey came back showing that the pay was low for the selected job titles they changed everyone's job title instead of increasing pay.
Advice to Senior Management – Employees are assets not cost centers
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Flexibility in some departments depends on who the leadership is. Ability to take on new and exciting work.
Cons – Under-rated titles, so employees take on high levels of work that is not commensurate with level of responsibility and compensation. Lack of trust with managers and employees.
Pros – Very large organization with multinational presence with a large campus and decent benefits for the size of the company. Good learning experience.
Cons – Problems with large organizations is speed at getting things accomplished or able to voice opinions without fearing reprecussions. Lots of politics in the workplace.
Pros – Great perks and free food. TD is a great company for recent college grads or individuals out of work. they do a great job getting people in using the internal Temp Agency "Spherion."
Cons – Advancement is solely based on what is written on paper, or who your smoking buddies are (literally). My manager is also non-existent and not very helpful with the advancement of my career. All the skills I have obtain on my own initiative and seeking my own training opportunities.
Salaries are also not very competitive with the market
Advice to Senior Management – Hire better managers.
CEO is almost no-existent other seeing him walking around rarely.

“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 Senior Management – Communicate more with your line level employee's and be more accessible.
