  1. Costa Rica SMB

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Tech Data

    Pros

    In Costa Rica , Winning contests will allow you to travel to awesome events!!!!!!however they are very hard to win, besides that it's just another call center being run by a very bad HR dept, and managers who only worry about having a monkey in a chair, also no real growth , just lateral.

    Cons

    Costa Ricas office handles SMB accounts, this office is run like a call center, it's definitely not a sales office, they will not even allow you to listen to music, every break is micro managed, the teams are made up of 3, always have a top performer and 2 losers that benefit from the hard work that the top performer puts in, English level is poor, vp is onsite and is no help at all, actually looks for any excuse to fire an employee as much as he can, he's also been known to hit on certain girls , resolves customer issues by simply changing the customers sales teams, all to add to all this sales reps barely make a $1,000 a month, so keep in mind this is definitely a call center

    Pros

    The company is located in sunny Florida. There some good people that work there. The vendors have training several times a week. This is a great place to understand technology.

    Cons

    They think they have a diverse culture but i found it to be anything but diverse. Very few people of color and very homophobic. Some executives still prescribe to old out dated forms of managing. They using fear and intimidation. The computer system will extremely slow and cumbersome. There really isn't any career development strategy or track.

    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 Management

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

    I love going to work everyday. The people and environment are great.

    Cons

    The pay is average to below-average for the area. Getting promoted can be very difficult, even for top performers.

    Pros

    40 year old company, so the opportunity for growth is there. Friendly people

    Cons

    Arguably industry leading in low pay, too many tenured employees hurt the culture due to the "job vs career" mentality, they add layers of seniority to keep employee's content, but there is no actual vertical movement for employees.

  7. Poorly managed environment

    Pros

    There are many great people and teams to join. Most people work very hard to do the right thing. It is a great place to learn and then find a real job elsewhere or if you are looking to retire. TD university trains you for your next big opportunity. You most likely will not get fired as long as you are not in mid management or higher. If you are in the top 10 -CEO-CFO-CIO, SR VP, etc. you will have a job as long as you want it as it is still a good old boys environment. There are many people who make it to 20 years.

    Cons

    upper management has no desire to allow people to grow effectively and force people to either leave the company or go to another group within Tech Data to get a better position. The philosophy seems to be that 5 entry level people are better than one experienced person. Extremely low pay for the amount of work and knowledge experience.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency. Don't make decisions in a vacuum. Pay people what they are worth anf eliminate about 20% of your accountants as they are an expense.

    Pros

    Looks of free stuff from vendors, lots of good people there still.

    Cons

    Management needs to actually listen to employees for a change. Low pay for a lot of hard work. Hard to grow a career here anymore. Stop bringing in cheap labor for SSR's and invest in your people, they would stop leaving.
