    Best job I ever had.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Suwanee, GA (US)

    ProsI 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.

    ConsNot the best wage I have ever had, but the pros more than make up for that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on keeping on.

    Excellent Employer

    Middle Management (Current Employee) Clearwater, FL (US)

    ProsTech Data cares for its employees and provides each employee numerous opportunities to learn and advance in their careers. The management team is top notch and strives to improve constantly the level of communication, rapport and pursuit of goals with the employees. Your not just a number at Tech Data, you make a significant difference in the role you serve in and for those interested, Tech Data and its employees also make a significant impact in the community for charitable causes.

    ConsNone really. Truly enjoy working at Tech Data.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with your management techniques - its working. The company is fiscally strong, employees are engaged, we are gaining market share and growing revenue/margin at impressive rates. Feels good to be a part of a winning team!

    Excellent company, staff and leadership team that delivers results and provides wonderful opportunities to grow

    Long Tenured 19 Year Employee (Current Employee) Clearwater, FL (US)

    ProsTech Data is a great company to work for and this stems from the culture that the executive team has grown. Each employee is empowered to do their best; with many employees starting at the bottom rung and progressing to high level positions within the organization. The culture starts with a passion for winning, teamwork, partnership, integrity and respect, communication and accountability. I have had numerous career opportunities throughout my tenure with the organization and Tech Data rewards those who achieve results.

    The company has an excellent benefits package, career opportunities, over seas assignments if one is interested, lateral transfers as a means to learn something new, in-house training, education reimbursement and with the empowerment of the staff anything is possible if you work for it.

    The senior management team is top notch and Tech Data exceeds in many categories as a great place to work. I am happy and proud to be an employee here!

    ConsReally can not think of any specific grievance. Tech Data, it's employees, management team, customers, vendors and partners are all great to work with. Tech Data is a high volume environment, razor thin margins and operates in a tough marketplace - therefore some days are tough. But when you rise to the occasion, the company will reward you for performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work! I would advise someone in management review some of the comments on Glassdoor - funny how some people have a different prespective of the same company. Everyone I work with in sales, marketing, customer service, IT, logistics, credit, finance and other groups are very tenured employees and absolutely love it at Tech Data.
