    Pros

    Great staff. Pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    Directors, HR.
    If you ever go to HR, don't expect them to actually ever be on your side.
    Directors are not good managers.
    I worked very hard, and got a kick in the teeth.
    Expected to work long hours and also on some weekends with no compensation. Very unreasonable!

    Advice to Management

    Maybe treat the staff with respect and stop trying to get blood out of a stone!

    I worked at Tech Data full-time

    Pros

    Some of the hardest working group of people that I have ever worked with and are very committed to bringing a quality experience to their customers.

    Cons

    Some of the support departments are not as committed to a quality customer experience as some of the customer facing departments. This can lead to a some of the frontline departments taking on top much of the support departments responsibles.

    Advice to Management

    It appears that there are changes coming that could potentially be disruptive. Be sure to take a view of your people and prepare them for these changes. Not everyone will be ok with these changes.
