Bureaucratic slow paced environment
Some of the managers are really good, but the overall culture is not nurturing. Too much unnecessary procedures. No career advancement, people are easily replaced, salaries are low

Great place to work if you have no aspirations to advance in your career.
Tech Data is a place where you can do a lot of work or get by doing not so much work.
The culture is very slow paced and relaxed.

Whether you're in Product Marketing or Sales or if you're a buyer, you can really work at your own pace with little to no urgency.

It is a great place to work if you don't have any aspirations whatsoever to advance your career.


Management: Great for most parts but most of management has been around for 10+ years which inevitably reduces your chances of becoming a manager.


Workplace Culture: Depends on which department you're in. Stay away from sales as I've had fellow colleagues say the sales department is very "high-school" like (Immature, gossip, etc)


The most enjoyable part: When it's time to clock out and food trucks in the summertime.

Relaxed Work space
Quarter-end and year end gets a little hectic but otherwise relaxed work environment. Lots of free goodies from vendors and occasional free lunches during vendor presentations.

Not a lot of room for growth
Management promotes a work/life balance, room to grow and excel but its longer days with high expectations/quotas and lots of turn over. Senior reps are tasked with an exceeding full work load and responsibilities as well as quota achievement with under industry pay levels.

Great place to work
A lot of opportunity for growth. If you would like to find a place to start off with a lot of room to grow into a more senior position, this is a great place.

Workplace is pretty professional. Everyone is really helpful. If you show you're interested, communicate when you're having difficulty and do the most that you can without overwhelming yourself people will see it and you'll be rewarded.

Senior management needs work
I worked at this company for 10 years and have witnessed blatant favoritism in several departments. There is a high school mentality that clouds judgement and allows directors to behave like teenagers. Management is stuck in their ways. They are not open to new idea, . "doing what they have always done". There is no real opportunity to advance which often means good work goes unrecognized and uncompensated.

Changing Workplace, uncertain future
There is a lot of focus on growth of the company, but not so much in the growth of its employees. The people you work with on a day to day basis are the reason why you go to work.
Pros
Lots of SWAG from the Vendors
Cons
Unappreciative superiors

Friendly and competitive work environment
Techdata provided a comfortable space for employees to flourish. A typical day in the warehouse would consist of arriving early to chat with other employees in a lounge area for about 10 minutes before starting work. As soon as you stepped into the warehouse the culture shifted to a more competitive and fast paced atmosphere. With not much time to relax, the work demanded your full attention and dedication the job at hand. Only postive things can be taken away from this experience as I learned how to stay on task and get a job done while limiting myself to any distractions. The hardest part of the job was coping with the hot and humid work envirionment in the mezzanine and not letting that effect how well you perform the task. The company provided many facilities to help employees cope with the heat. The most enjoyable part was how the job required you to think and react quickly. Speed and accuracy was essential to being successful and I enjoyed always having to be on my toes.
Pros
payed lunches, being a student and having the opportunity to meet and network with other employees in the company
Cons
Hours could get a bit long for the amount of physical work that was required
