    I have been working at Tech Data full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been there for several years and each manager I have has been great. I have felt listened to, and I have been encouraged to better my work skills whenever I have sought out new opportunities.

    Cons

    Everyone I currently work with really likes Tech Data. In the past I have known of one department with several disgruntled employees but it has since improved.

    I have been working at Tech Data full-time

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth and development. Large company with multiple divisions so there's room for movement if you don't like where you're at.

    Cons

    Will start you at the bottom of the pay scale and the best way to a raise is by taking a new position, which isn't the most efficient structure.

    I have been working at Tech Data full-time

    Pros

    The company is very stable and growing. They are in the fortune 100 list of companies. Management is very easy going and extremely willing to work with associates through whatever life issues may arise.

    Cons

    There really aren't many cons to this company. The only thing that concerns me is the amount of savings that could be had.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The associates seem to be very happy. Please keep the benefits as they are. They are very competitive.

    I have been working at Tech Data full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best work environment I've ever worked in. It's a great place to start your career in the tech industry and really encourages occupational growth.

    Cons

    Sound travels quickly in your workspace. Depending on where you work, you may have loud co-workers that may distract you from your work from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great, however, they are required to enforce monthly reviews of each individual which really isn't necessary nor efficient.
