    Pros

    It could be a decent job for someone right out of college.

    Cons

    Very low pay compared to other simular jobs that I have done. Difficult to get navigate processes or find someone that knows the process and will actually assist. Poor culture if you arent in sales.

    Pros

    Good, progressive company. strong ethics and diversity.Leader in the industry. Good executive direction from a strategic standpoint. Good pay and benefits.
    Gets 2 stars ONLY for this position. Other positions would get 3 or 4.

    Cons

    Field Sales management micro manages to the point where process takes priority over performance. Perhaps understandable considering the $7B US sales org HAS NO CRM SYSTEM. The biz is run on a multitude of Excel spreadsheets. The lack of communication between the numerous sales units is breathtaking.

    Advice to Management

    GET A CRM SYSTEM! & require sales units to utilize. Reduce Field Sales micro-management.

    There is a lot of talk about open door policy and people not being harassed or no tolerance for discrimination but unfortunately it is only talk. No one helps.

    Pros

    It's a stable company. You can apply for different positions. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Unreal goals, overwhelm people with too many accounts, micromanagement and there's no recognition of employees, no matter how hard you work it's never enough.

    Advice to Management

    Have some respect for the hard work of your sales people and recognize their efforts. Hire more people to make it fair not exploiting the way it's currently done.

    I worked at Tech Data (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Average place for launching an entry level IT Apprenticeship. Tech Data allows for remote, work from home opportunities in several positions.

    Cons

    Overwhelming mainstream cases of nepotism, favorites, cronyism, along with Senior and Mid-levels of mismanagement of monies, resources, and old-unsupported IT systems.

    Advice to Management

    Be accountable for the decisions made at your level, which have not benefitted the business, culture and future.

    I worked at Tech Data full-time

    Pros

    There is TONS of education available, and product certifications promoted. The team mates work closely together for resolution of solutions.

    Cons

    High pressure to answer questions quickly by management. They will point out if you get out of your chair too often.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are humans, too.

    Pros

    great co-workers (with a few exceptions). Camaraderie between team members

    Cons

    Mid level management is just horrible. Constant politics. More than 50% of people that have been there longer than 10-15 years have extremely outdated skill set and are just awaiting retirement.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize folks that actually perform and not the ones that have been there the longest. Eliminate red tape
