    I worked at Tech Data full-time

    Pros

    Salary is decent, benefits are not bad

    Cons

    Too "corporate", very low flexibility, extremely close-minded company. Workers feel like robots sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should probably encourage a more flexible work environment. Granted, it's a sales-oriented company, but even then original ideas should be welcome

    Pros

    free food and more free food

    Cons

    mentally draining/daily phone grind/selling over priced goods. The commissions are designed to always keep the carrot farther away so you can never really make a living wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make systems easier way too much clutter and extra micro management

    Pros

    What a great ride it was being part of this organization during 20+ years of growth and change.

    Cons

    While its nice to promote from within, a sprinkling of professionally trained managers would improve consistency of performance across the departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tech Data is dependent on vendor marketing funds. Wasteful spending could be curbed.

    Pros

    A big corporation that offers some job stability.
    A good place to get your corporate feet wet.
    Looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    Worklife balance not so balanced.
    So many missed opportunities to build morale.
    Very stressful and relentless atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please remember that you are not only dealing with an employee, you are dealing with their life, their family, their hopes, and their dreams. Sometimes, it's not always about work and that bottom dollar.

    Pros

    Family feel. Nice HR. OK gym. Good benefits until this year.

    Cons

    Disorganized, terminal with no possibility for diversification. The Front-Office leadership team is driving a steam engine in a nuclear age. The technology team is on fire and out of control and overpaid. Marketing is a joke. Compensation is so completely inequitable across departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wow. Bail faster.

    Pros

    So far the company has held true to their promise of work/life balance for their hourly employees.

    Cons

    The company isn't doing great economically and the morale of the company is very low. Senior management still gets bonuses this year while all other employees who had a rough year changing systems get nothing in return.
