    Honesty you won't get anything good from working with this company but a paycheck and the pay is below average

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing good about this facility except the half run by Tech Data. Tech Data has not yet cleaned house and gotten rid of the turds that are lazy and have no clue how to run a business.

    Cons

    Logistics Center warehouse is run by goons who not only do NOT know how to run a business but do NOT belong in positions where they have anyone working under them. Unprofessional. HR doesn't care, as they are only a representative of legal and do not care about employees or the work environment. HR rep is unprofessional. Warehouse management allows lazy people to be lazy and rewards them for it. Top handful of employees are required to make up for the lazy people by putting in 3 times the amount of work. Does not plan for employee loss so there is way to much tribal knowledge. Lacks training in every way.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all management from the top down that is a part of the old Avnet TS group and hire new.

    Pros

    Mon-Fri, with the holidays off that's about it.

    Cons

    Pay, Environment, Culture, Training (in my dept at least) can not comment on other areas of the company. They will find any excuse to put you down, they make it seem like its a great place to work well the team I worked on was hell on earth. No trust at all.

    Advice to Management

    Understand people are human.

    Pros

    Two monitors, large parking lot, you will learn what bad leaders are and look like and will know what to avoid at your next career.

    Cons

    Management all have been in their seats for 8+ years. They are not open to new ideas or innovation. Status Quo is OK with them. They cut 70 employees when they gave the CEO a $1M bonus for securing an acquisition (in their public Financials) ... I.E. playing a round of golf. Switching to high deductible ONLY insurance in 2018 yet the stock is at all time highs?! Still use VERY old digital systems from circa 1996. Phones at your desk way 20 pounds.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people that don't care anymore and advance the ones that do. It isn't that hard.

    Pros

    Made some nice friendships while there.

    Cons

    Lots! You only get promoted if you are liked. Pay is not great. I was there 8+ years and they took raises away for 3 of them and 401k contribution for another 4 while the executives lined their pockets. Very much a good old boys club and they do play favorites as I saw people with little experience get promoted into positions they were not qualified for but since they were buddies with someone, more deserving people got overlooked. Internal training sucks as they don't do anything to prepare you to further your career. They over work you and expect that you accept it. If you are looking to start your career or are desperate for a job, apply here, otherwise...RUN!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Give a little back. It's ridiculous to not give raises or 401k contributions.

    Pros

    The ability to travel, exposure to executives and management, the culture is trying to include diversity and inclusion groups and practices

    Cons

    Long hours, no overtime if you are salaried, you will burn out quickly. The pay is not enough to accommodate the long hours, the pressure from management and even executives if your business isn't doing very well. The pressure is not worth the pay.

    Advice to Management

    They should pay their employees more for the amount of work and expectations within the role as the average salary for a PM is much higher. Learning new skills and not being micromanaged will allow for employees to stay! Management should lead and want their employees to grow and develop.
