    I worked at Tech Data

    Pros

    large company, many positions to eventually move into/up to with manager approval

    Cons

    managers favor people and co workers wait until every april for reviews to get promotions or transfer, thus no one is your friend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get finances in order and pay more attention to talent

    Pros

    I can't speak to the Clearwater campus as I work in another location. These are the most friendly, accommodating people I have ever worked with. This includes management. The company goes further to make an employee feel appreciated than any place I have ever worked.

    Cons

    Not the best wage I have ever had, but the pros more than make up for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on.
