    I worked at Tech Data full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company but feels like a small one.

    Cons

    Does not share the wealth with employees. If the company does well in just means upper management gets a bigger bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking away from employees to give your selves more.

    Pros

    Most of the people are great to work with and you are able to make great connections within the industry.

    Cons

    Teams are often understaffed. Employees are paid very little for the amount of work that is expected. Bonus structure is mostly unattainable.

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

    Pros

    1) Great development opportunity in fast-paced, high-demand work environment
    2) Experience builder in working with well-respected clients (Innumerable Fortune 500 Companies represented)
    3) Gain exposure to multiple aspects of a $25B + organization with tremendous learning advantages

    Cons

    1) Low-end pay scale (nearly uncompetitive in tech industry)
    2) Overall lack of upward mobility within company (some oneness to company, some not)
    3) Very low employee satisfaction environment (high-expectations, low-pay, high attrition) - More focus is given to corporate earnings and less than acceptable consideration for employees

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people first. Always.

    Pros

    Solid company financials. Plenty of very smart people scattered throughout the organization. Senior leadership is generally pretty impressive.

    Cons

    Many unmotivated people. People who want to stay in their swim lane and not think anywhere outside of it. If you're smart and hardworking, everything falls on you because many people aren't expected to have to think or figure things out to contribute to the team.

    Many of the jobs here are jobs in the most abysmal sense of the word - cog-in-the-wheel, "waiting until it's automated" kind of jobs.

    It also really sucks how cheap they are. They make you pay for plastic forks and knives for lunch. The coffee is undrinkable without a tremendous amount of sugar. They'll send you offsite on an assignment with a mini laptop meant for children (this actually happened to me...it had a sticker that said "edu" on it)

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people punching the clock for retirement.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, nice people

    Cons

    Very hard to move up unless you know the right people. Just working hard doesn't help. Work/ life balance only exists for certain departments. Poor communication between management and employees. It seems they would rather hire external candidates instead promoting and training internal.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees. If we did not get a job, tell us why. There are other departments that can telecommute weekly!! Research the job and let us work from home 1 day a week.
