      Pros

      Room for progression within company, inclusive environment, good benefits, awesome teammates.

      Cons

      Working 10 hour days, don't get the same holidays as most other corporations, and depending on the department, micro-managed to the point of indifference. Personal perception is that jobs get filled base don who you know, not necessarily merit or demonstrated abilities.

      Low pay and no career advancement

      Apr 13, 2021 - Associate Sales Representative (ASR) in Clearwater, FL

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Td rewards (incentives, bonus) PTO, benefits package is decent Remote (temporary)

      Cons

      Low base pay Micromanagement High turnover Excessive amount of busy work Lack of transparency with company updates Outdated systems and management style In this job you pretty much act as the middle man between customers, vendors and management and there just isn’t enough time in the day to do it all but expect that you’ll get yelled at for not doing so. Raises are rarely given and you’re expected to do double the work than what you’re actually compensated. This company lost a lot of talent due to the excessive micromanagement of the higher ups and they’ll pretty much shame you if you intend to move out of sales. The turnover has increased significantly since the company shifted to remote due to COVID-19 and that’s due to the company’s outdated practices. If you don’t intend to make sales your life long career, I would suggest look elsewhere that will pay you better for what you’re worth.

      Has potential to be an employer of choice, but is too concerned about short term decision making

      Pros

      You can meet some amazing people there. Great connections to vendors for promotion opportunities through leaving. With how challenging sustained success is here, you will develop strong organizational and business skills.

      Cons

      No sales methodology, no real CRM. No good training for sales. Certain departments (product marketing, Cisco, profit team) have too much arbitrary power over sales, often to bad short term results when in aggregate the decisions made by sales are fine. Comp plan is not competitive unless you're management. Insurance is overpriced, especially for a tech company. Additionally, there is little culture of a meritocracy at the company, it's more about how you play the game rather than doing the right thing. The ERP system is dangerously out of date, there is a culture of mediocrity in departments that are not customer facing. There is also a culture believing that sales makes too much money, has too many incentives when they adsorb the overwhelming majority of the risk in the organization.

      Pros and Cons of TD

      Pros

      - Pre-covid, my team and I worked from home twice a week - Work life balance fair, except for the end of the month - Lax company culture, first name basis - Teammates get along - $50 voucher from Uber Eats - My team and I get along well

      Cons

      I find it truly disappointing that Tech Data makes no effort to make any announcements or provides words of comfort regarding the recent Asian American attacks or Black Lives Matter movement. The company focuses on profit, mergers with Synnex, and Apollo's recent acquistion of the company. However, they overlook the opinions and feelings of their employees. Moral is at an all time low. Three of my co-workers resigned last year. And four this year, it's only March! The managers and higher ups need to focus more on customer satisfaction and employee retention. In addition, I have no received any sort of merit increase or promotion and I have been working here for two years already. Other companies would at least provide a merit increase at a minimum. I have also found out that the females and minorities on my team are getting paid less than their white male counterparts. That is a shame.

      Pros

      Open door communication. Plenty of growth opportunities and career development. If you are invested in being the best you can be they are invested in you too.

      Cons

      We are going through a merger so jobs security is lacking right now.

      Pros

      They do a great job hiring intelligent people so you are typically on a team that is very capable. Company culture is very supportive and uplifting.

      Cons

      The inside account rep position felt a bit too much like a middleman at times. It really did seem like my value add was not very compelling regardless of what upper management kept spouting.
