    Pros

    Great company. Lots of exposure and a lot of opportunity!

    Cons

    I hear of other companies that truly reward their people for doing their jobs and more so. It seems often times here, once you start really doing well, they change something so you aren't paid as much and aren't as successful, to make you work harder for less...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish management had better visions towards rewarding hard working employees and wanting their employees happy and excited to come to work.

    I have been working at Tech Data full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are fantastic and the benefits are good as well as the pay being decent. Great learning environment but not through any training just on the job experience. If you have a good attitude and work hard they do recognize you with awards but dont expect pay raises very often. Love working at Tech Data and I still am happy to drive in each day.

    Cons

    Pay is not industry leading but this is acknowledged by management. Can be very political as managers often pick favorites. Cafeteria is poor in my experience but gym is not bad and very cheap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive leadership is very very good at TD but you can run into some dead wood in the middle management ranks.

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

    Pros

    Learn about the distribution of IT hardware, all financial aspects surrounding this business and develop your own career. The benefits of working here are good.

    Cons

    Sometimes you are missing the support of colleagues to overcome a problem. Help yourself is then the solution. Another problem is that successes seem normal but when something goes wrong there is no support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people and leave your door open.

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

    Pros

    The people are great and the opportunity was amazing. I was able to learn so much in the 4.5 years I was there and they are the reason where I am today.

    Cons

    The pay was way too low for the work we were required to do. I felt a little under appreciated because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership was great, so keep on doing what you are doing. Just maybe try to pay better.
