    I worked at Tech Data full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    centrally located, lots of young people working there. some fun activities. Most co-workers are cool. sorry but that is all the PROs I can think of but I must put in at least 20 words.

    Cons

    You have to watch your back there. HR and management are always looking for excuses to get rid of people. The turn over ratio at that place is UNBELIEVABLE. SSR-Sales Support Reps are hired by the hundreds yearly because the job sucks, is stressful and pay is rediculous. A lot of people are treated unfairly and management/HR will not back you. The company is Unethical in the ways they handle employees except for the executives of course. The executives are allowed to do unethical things without consequences. Even their CEO is under investigation for unethical behavior. It's just a GOOD OL BOY club there between HR and upper management. Does anyone really want to deal with kind of treatment? The pay there is average at best anyway. I would avoid this shady company.

    Advice to Management

    remember that you and HR put your pants on the same way as your employees, all your money doesn't make you any better. Read your own Ethics training guides before you start pushing out to your employees!!

    Pros

    Outstanding staff. Intelligent, innovative. Many attractive perks, promos, and gifts offered by vendors.

    Cons

    Only the best survive. Employees are pushed to their limit for productivity with their income growth constantly limited. Exceeding goals results in minimum goals being constantly raised, so that the big money only goes to upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Your success is based too much on keeping your most productive people down. The sorry economy lets you do this.
