    I worked at Tech Data full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    SAP Software, Management absence, career path, high mark ups

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, reduce excessive meetings, consider reasonable goals, show appreciation, plan to build a "sales" software, balance salaries

    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.

    I have been working at Tech Data full-time (less than an year)

    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.

    I worked at Tech Data full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Do more frequent reviews and have more structured guidlines.

    Pros

    I can't speak to the Clearwater campus as I work in another location. These are the most friendly, accommodating people I have ever worked with. This includes management. The company goes further to make an employee feel appreciated than any place I have ever worked.

    Cons

    Not the best wage I have ever had, but the pros more than make up for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on.
