    I worked at Tech Data full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive and while I worked on the "business side" I was afforded ample opportunity for growth and allowed to develop tools that helped make my job and my teammates' jobs easier.

    Cons

    IT Department takes tremendous pride in NOT spending it's training budget. When we requested training, we were told to "buy a book" even though the training was essential for my team to grow into new opportunities. IT suffers from a "done is better than perfect" mentality that results in the users getting much less than they actually need, and applications that sit unused for years because they don't meet the requirements of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Business Analysts to ensure that IT meets the needs of the actual users and make departments use their training budgets to train people.
