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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Pay was low. Progress Feedback was tedious and redundant. Technical knowledge is low, sales skills are high. Sales teams and solutions teams had a lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge you subordinates. Management had an inflated self esteem.

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

    Pros

    Overtime checks and they get you forklift certified but other than that nothing much here. Oh maybe just the people that worked there were cool.

    Cons

    No outside work life, unprofessional management, no raises. No vacation time. Micromanage everything you do as well as expect you to never miss a day while working 72 hours a week for little pay.

    Pros

    Gleitzeit, Homeoffice Möglichkeit, Kollegen, Kantine

    Cons

    Misstrauenskultur, immer höhere Ziele obwohl die vom Vorjahr nicht mal gepackt wurden, Zerschlagung des Standortes München, alles geht ins Ausland

    Advice to Management

    Ein Kultur des Misstrauens ist nicht förderlich, wann versteht jemand endlich das der Mitarbeiter, der respektvoll behandelt wird, den Respekt der Firma zurück gibt?!
