    I worked at Tech Data as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The internship program was really awesome, the cafeteria food was great. They made the best burritos I ever had and would have sushi every Thursday. The people are great and there is some cool stuff to work on.

    Cons

    The team I was placed on was behind schedule and they did not have enough time to sufficiently train me for the tasks I was hired to do, but the other interns did not have any such problems. TD is also an international company so many teams will have members who are all over the world.

    Advice to Management

    Besides being behind schedule I had no issues with management and would say they did a great job.

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

    Pros

    Very structured, data rich, clear metrics. You can know how you are doing on almost every variable you want to measure

    Cons

    It takes a lot of time and commitment to excel. Expect to work more than 8 hours a day. Expect little deviation from the established processes.

    Advice to Management

    I see hundreds of people, all held to the same expectatitions. I understand that is healthy for the standardization you want. But, there is a fine line that is being crossed, where you are failing to recognize some of the strenghts your individual contributors and managers can bring. You need to further specialize your people and leverage their strengths, vs focusing on bringin everyone up to the standard.
