    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -"We're all in this together" attitude with peers. Others want to help you when they can.
    -Good people in the middle and lower levels.

    Cons

    -Highly political environment: You must play the game to stay in good graces, or hope to fly under the radar.
    -Senior leaders (Directors and above) are more concerned with doing what they think their boss wants, than they are in doing right for the business or the people.
    -Since no one has any knowledge outside of their silo, the senior leadership within each silo is able to manipulate whatever they need to in order to create the perception of competance. Budget creation, HR feedback, assignment of work and recognition are all controlled within each group to support the image that the senior leader wants to create.

    Advice to Management

    -If this company wants to survive beyond the next five years, they need to figure out a way to have areas work together, and have a direction beyond "what IT says" or "what Finance says" or "what sales says". The people below see the disconnects-the increased turnover to come will drain the talent pool, the isolated leaders will further alienate their people and erode their trust.

    Pros

    Tech Data has some of the best people to work with in the Tampa Bay area. The difficulties with the newer management in the company has been detrimental in keeping key employees.

    Cons

    Poor management. Management positions are filled with people without the basic understanding of their job. They also lay-off their seasoned employees to back fill with cheaper employees.

    Advice to Management

    Tech Data has some great employees that are more than qualified to hold key management positions. Tech Data's policy is to promote or hire management based on years of school completed, regardless of the type of degree. They have actually hired management with no work experience over employees with several years experience.
