Senior management needs work
manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON31 January 2019
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.

Friendly and competitive work environment
Logistics Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON17 June 2018
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

Changing Workplace, uncertain future
Partner Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON18 September 2018
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

Fun workplace with little growth
Associate Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 July 2017
Tech Data is a great company to work for. It is a fun and semi-fast paced environment. However, there is little place to grow and management is lacking management skills, oddly enough. The culture in the company is great and everyone is very friendly. The hardest part of the job is not knowing what is to come. The most enjoyable part of the job is being involved in various events while working closely with vendors.
Pros
Fun environment, great co-workers
Cons
Management, poor work-life balance

Great place to work if you have no other options
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON12 June 2018
Great place to work if you have no other options. Over-worked & underpaid. If you are signing up to work in Sales - ask about !all! condition on promised bonus. Sometimes your bonus will be enough for a pack of cigarettes.
Pros
. You will never have to worry about having too much money, or razing kids cause you can't afford any.
Cons
You will start envying dinosaurs who went extinct.

Anybody who doesn't have ambition and values security over all other needs should work there.

PROS
Great people,
Good culture.
Benefits
Security

CONS
Salary

Career Progression

It's a great place to start a career, but only a loser would want to spend their life there.

Channel Sales, is really order-fulfillment If you find that exciting, then Tech Data, Ingram or any of those other distributors are the spot for you Because really all you do is contribute to the supply chain process

Good company, team environment
HP Server/Storage Specialist (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON6 November 2017
Good team environment. I had a wide range of official and unofficial responsibilities. Because the pre-sales support role was relatively new when I started, it was constantly evolving. I was able to help to define the role. At times, the division of labour was unclear, between sales, product management and finance. The presales role touched all of these areas. However, overall it was a good experience.
Pros
Good team
Cons
Too many responsibilities.

Great Company
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 November 2017
It is super great considering it is my first job after graduation. Company culture and colleagues are super great. Employee will support each other. Considering "we" instead of "I". However, most of the work duty is repeated, short of renovation and advanced tech. Once there is some change on vendor side or the customer side, it takes a long time for the company to adapt.

They award you one month and lay you off the next. A false culture fabricated on intimidation and self doubt. Bully type culture - harrassed by Management and nothing was done.
