    Pros

    Great company. Lots of exposure and a lot of opportunity!

    Cons

    I hear of other companies that truly reward their people for doing their jobs and more so. It seems often times here, once you start really doing well, they change something so you aren't paid as much and aren't as successful, to make you work harder for less...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish management had better visions towards rewarding hard working employees and wanting their employees happy and excited to come to work.

    I worked at Tech Data full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great office building, ok salary

    Cons

    Was let go after 4 weeks of training ( was promised 3 months of training) because of a cancelled order, Neither my mentor or my supervisor took responsibility for a cancelled $7,000 order...instead they blamed me not reading an email and fired me. This company could be great but uses people and wastes their time and yours... sales department are high driven but very shady to do something like this to someone they have not even completely trained. Turn over is HIGH!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your management should take responsibility for training and the mistakes they make...letting someone take the fall that has been employed for onlyr weeks is DISGRACEFUL. I will tell everyone I know what happened to me at TECH DATA.

    They are not very consistent with payment ranges. They usually wait untill the last minute to offer a better salary when it is already too late!
