    I worked at Tech Data full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growth opportunity
    Standard benefits
    Some leaders truly care about employees and future of company
    Many employees in TD Corp in Florida really care and try to help new employees

    Cons

    Difficult to navigate to get to right person/team due to company being so big
    Legacy Avnet leadership within Services divisions is not as good as TD corp leadership
    Some leaders/management within services division are not as caring towards employees
    Legacy Avnet portion in Services had so many acquisitions, there are 8-11 different systems to deal with (being addressed).

    Advice to Management

    1) Specifically for the leadership/management from Legacy Avnet, they need to: adapt to TD culture and take accountability instead of constant CYA, evaluate the way you are perceived by employees and work on coming across more guinuine and caring, increase emotional intelligence, be more open on communicating company/leadership direction, and stop trying to hoard headcount by being more honest/forthright with staffing needs. 2) For TD Corp leadership: be more open on communicating details on company vision/direction to your lower leadership levels so they can allign better with ST/LT strategy.
