    Pros

    Benefits are good. Atmosphere is positive. Progress feedback provided. Flex hours.

    Acknowledge you subordinates. Management had an inflated self esteem.

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

    Pros

    Very rewarding with incentives, trips, lunches, events, free tickets etc. Its also a good place to work to get your foot in the door, but not long term.

    Cons

    The pay is almost half compared to the rest of the industry. Not a very good work life balance in my opinion. Every day at 9am on the dot my manager stands up and takes roll, and actually DIS-couraged me from volunteering for bring your child to work day. Its hard to get promoted and actually get a comparable raise. My raise was only 10 cents when i was promoted from solutions associate to rep.

    Advice to Management

    We want to be paid comparably to those doing the exact same thing at Avnet, the company you acquired.

    Pros

    This company is a great place to start your career and work your way up.

    Cons

    The glass ceilings in this company are very evident and look more like cement ceilings. Once you reach a certain level such as middle management there is not much of a career path from there.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your talent what their worth or you will continue to lose them to competitors.
