New order system sucks

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

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.

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.
Pros – Big company where you can meet life long friends. Lots of perks from the vendors you work with: sports tickets, dinners, outings, etc. Meet a lot of high up VP, Presidents, etc of major corporations.
Cons – My manager changed 5 times in less than 3 years. Promoting is only when something is available and is usually given by seniority versus talent and hard work.
Advice to Senior Management – Get with your employees more and talk about and work with them on their career path at Tech data.
Pros – I was offered the opportunity to carry out an internship within one of Tech Data's business units. The place is like a revolving door, with a high turnover rate within every department you look at. My boss was only two months into his position when I joined, and he delegated the task of overseeing my work to a young lady who had been there for a little over ten months, and she was already considered a senior employee by their standards!
I interacted with several people at several levels, ranging from highly self-disciplined professionals to not-so-talented rif raf.
This is an ok place for networking. An advantage of working for TD is that you happen to be up to date with latest trends of the market. A con is that if you don't have the vision, you may end up stuck there spinning your wheels forever.
Cons – One big con is the attitude of management. I got the sense that they were not up to the challenge. My boss never sat down with me, and all I received was his total indifference, from the beginning to the end. There wasn't even common courtesy or politeness. Very rude guy. Once I finished my internship I got a much better offer from much better and decided to move on, a career is too much of a precious asset to let it stall like that.
Advice to Senior Management – The CEO is a very nice guy, as much as some other members of senior management, but that is not enough. They need to re-connect with reality, and be aware that the reason things are not working is the human factor. Their best people is fleeing and they are being replaced it with mediocre managers.
