    Pros

    - Excellent training

    If you have a strong team that is delivering results, just leave it and take advantage of it, don't layoff the entire department that is exceeding expectations.

    I worked at Tech Data full-time

    Pros

    Some of the hardest working group of people that I have ever worked with and are very committed to bringing a quality experience to their customers.

    Cons

    Some of the support departments are not as committed to a quality customer experience as some of the customer facing departments. This can lead to a some of the frontline departments taking on top much of the support departments responsibles.

    Advice to Management

    It appears that there are changes coming that could potentially be disruptive. Be sure to take a view of your people and prepare them for these changes. Not everyone will be ok with these changes.

    Pros

    Two monitors, large parking lot, you will learn what bad leaders are and look like and will know what to avoid at your next career.

    Cons

    Management all have been in their seats for 8+ years. They are not open to new ideas or innovation. Status Quo is OK with them. They cut 70 employees when they gave the CEO a $1M bonus for securing an acquisition (in their public Financials) ... I.E. playing a round of golf. Switching to high deductible ONLY insurance in 2018 yet the stock is at all time highs?! Still use VERY old digital systems from circa 1996. Phones at your desk way 20 pounds.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people that don't care anymore and advance the ones that do. It isn't that hard.

    I have been working at Tech Data full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tech Data is doing wonderfully with employee benefits and corporate culture. It doesn't feel cutthroat, but rather collaborative.

    Cons

    There are definitely politics at play when trying to move up in the company. It is harder for females to move up than males as well. And be expected to be paid $5,000 to $15,000 less than the national average for mid-range experience positions and it's not lack of qualifications. I hold a Master's degree.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they're worth.

    Fantastic team, nice office, good environment, fair conditions, good life-work balance. Great new canteen service!

    Office a bit away from the city center although now we have a close metro station. If you come by car or motorbike, there is plenty of space to park though.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer view on internal opportunities to grow.
