Great place to be for 2-4 years

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Tech Data

Prosgreat people, great teams, good environment. awesome place to get your career started and gain experience in the industry but long term, 5+ years, you should plan for other places.

Consvery high traffic area, you need to get there 30 min before or else the entire area turns in to a parkinglot with all the other 30 companys in the area letting their 9-5'ers go. due to the low turn over rate in management, promotions are very seldom.

Advice to Senior Managementmake changes that will have greater impact internally to make employees feel recognized rather than just a few good words about their hard work.

My experience was great because of the people I worked with. They are what makes the company great.

I worked at Tech Data

ProsThe team and family culture is what makes this place a good company to work for if it is your first job. They train you and give you the resources to be successful.

ConsThe pay is not very good. it is below industry standards. They are not a great company for career advancement as most people who move up are very close to management.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on increasing pay and give people the opportunity to advance.

The culture at Tech Data promotes a great working environment full of opportunity.

Finance Intern (Former Employee)
Clearwater, FL (US)

I worked at Tech Data part-time for less than a year

ProsThe culture makes Tech Data a great place to work. We could wear business causal clothing Monday-Thurs and Friday we could even wear jerseys. Great people work here and seemed to me most were happy working for Tech Data.

ConsMy only con would be the cafeteria prices were a bit ridiculous, other than that great company.

Advice to Senior ManagementNothing, my managers and supervisors were awesome!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Quite satisfied with my employment at TechData

I have been working at Tech Data full-time for more than a year

ProsPositive work environment, people are nice to work with and managers are good to work for with good lines of communication between employee and manager. Work is not difficult in my department and is very rewarding. Work schedule is very accommodating and flexible.

ConsSome interdepartmental finger-pointing and at times a manager may try to blame an employee for an oversight the manager should also have noticed.

I enjoyed my time there, and would recommend to a friend.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Tech Data full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe benefits are good, and the people are great, but a lot of things changed when SAP went in. People became what seemed like bitter and angry at each other. Probably frustration.

ConsPolitics, Odd Org Charts and Structure

Great for a large corporation

Administrator II (Current Employee)
Clearwater, FL (US)

I have been working at Tech Data full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat benefits, even for part time! Varies tremendously by department. Sales, for instance, provides a lot of opportunities, and Customer Care really has your back and your career.

ConsLarge corporation mean endless red-tape. Things move slowly in large corporations, politics abound. Most else will vary by department. Purchasing offers little room for growth, for instance; and does not compensate fairly.

Advice to Senior ManagementInterdepartmental training would really be great to get people outside their little bubbles to be part of the whole company.
