    progressive company that always stays on or above the trends

    like anywhere, if you get a manager who isn't supportive, you need to look elsewhere in the company or outside the company

    Advice to Management

    make sure your managers are knowledgeable about the department and skills of the team in that department

    I have been working at Tech Data full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and great work enviornment. The executive are very approachable and easy to work with while having high expectations. Great opportunities to broaden your skills and knowledge.

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement. In some departments there is no opportunity for advancement. Although they are aware of the problem nothing is done to create opportunities for high-potential employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote the career opportunities and announce internal promotions. For those areas with limited to no career advancement the management/executive team needs design career opportunities now to retain high potential employees.

    I worked at Tech Data full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work environment is fun and the culture is business casual. If you work in Sales, you get many perks from vendors etc. that make it enjoyable to work there. Benefits were ok, same as pay.

    Cons

    Growth opportunity is very minimal for most, even the best of employees. Always seemed like the good ones left and the bad ones got promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Build your people.

    I worked at Tech Data full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive and while I worked on the "business side" I was afforded ample opportunity for growth and allowed to develop tools that helped make my job and my teammates' jobs easier.

    Cons

    IT Department takes tremendous pride in NOT spending it's training budget. When we requested training, we were told to "buy a book" even though the training was essential for my team to grow into new opportunities. IT suffers from a "done is better than perfect" mentality that results in the users getting much less than they actually need, and applications that sit unused for years because they don't meet the requirements of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Hire Business Analysts to ensure that IT meets the needs of the actual users and make departments use their training budgets to train people.

    Listen to employees, reduce excessive meetings, consider reasonable goals, show appreciation, plan to build a "sales" software, balance salaries
