    I have been working at GHA Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    GHA is THE company for highly motivated sales professionals. For the folks that are self motivated, hard working, well organized, work independently, and from the luxury of a home office, the opportunities are endless along with your six figure salary. Trust me this job not easy, and if one does not work and apply themselves 100% each day, you will struggle. You are paid for what you put in !

    Cons

    If you are a social-lite, want to spend your days chatting with your co-workers, not the place for you. If you cannot not work independently, not for you. If you need to point fingers at others for your failures, not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great leadership, and I love the direction in which we are headed.

    I have been working at GHA Technologies full-time

    Pros

    An incredible company to work for. Employee owned, flexibility, ESOP options, family environment. Negative reviews are humorous. I came here from a well known competitor and wouldn't change my decision for the world. The promotions, bonuses, compensation plan is second to none. Yes, this job is hard, yes this job requires 12-16 hour days for the first year...yes...but after year 1, it has been 6 figures and increasing each year. If you want to run your own business and make your own personal decisions on your book of business, this is the place. You do not get your book taken from you, no account rep change. The way to sum everything up - If you're motivated, competitive, intelligent, and NOT lazy...this is the place for you. How I describe GHA Technologies to my friends and family: "Who calls this work? What I do each day is talk with my friends, build relationships, and follow through with what I say I'm going to do, this is enjoyment that pays my bills and helps me provide for my family, not work."

    Cons

    Tough to think of a con...I would say for new hires, they are used to being "micro-managed," and hard to adjust to doing things on your own without someone over your back.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the positive attitude and passing along colleague success stories - motivation and immediate income raise!

    I worked at GHA Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Excellent Training, Great Product and Product Support, Excellent Earning Potential from the Compensation Plan, Allowed to run your own business. I worked for GHA back in 2005. I failed and left the company within a year. What I do know, and always have, is that I failed, and let me repeat that, it was I that failed, not GHA. GHA provides an excellent environment to be very successful. Hard work must be put in to succeed. Calls need to be made, and not just any calls, but highly focused and effective calls are required. It's not easy, but what is? I failed for a variety of reasons, each of which lands directly on me. If I left my ego and baggage at the door, my chances of success would have been much greater. Thanks go to GHA for providing an environment where exceptional service and salesmanship can be, and is, highly rewarding.

    Cons

    Not very many. Too many emails were a distraction for me. Again, my fault for letting that distract me from the work at hand.

    I have been working at GHA Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been in Technology Sales for over 10 years. GHA is the first company I have been with that truly care about you and your client base. I have had multiple instances where upper management has step out of their way to keep a client and myself happy over the financial well being of the company. It is truly hard to find that in this field. I would recommend this company to any of my close friends or clients.

    Cons

    I can't think of any major issue. It's the first time in a long time I have been happy working for a company.

    Advice to Management

    No direct management and it is great! To the owner keep up the good work. Keep listening to the sales members!

    I have been working at GHA Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    GHA is awesome to work for. I work from home, which allows me greater flexibility and access for my customers. There is no micromanagement, and I am left to run my day in the way I feel is most productive and efficient for my growth. I worked at another reseller for 5 years before joining GHA, and in the past 4 years, I have tripled my income with less stress, more flexibility, and supported by a fantastic company and co-workers. The tools, promotions, and discretion GHA gives to the sales people make my job very easy. The only reason I do not make even more money than I do is there are not enough hours in the day. It is my honest opinion, that if you are a dedicated, hard working, intelligent sales people with impeccable integrity, there is not a better technology reseller to work with. If GHA was not the best company I had ever worked for, I would not work here. Life is to short to not love what you do, and who you do it with. I am 100% happy, and I will retire from GHA a very wealthy and happy man.

    Cons

    You work from home, so while I feel that is a huge advantage for some, it also has it challenges if you are not a self-motivated, and upbeat sales person. This is not an easy job, you need to be efficient, positive, and creative on a daily basis.

    I have been working at GHA Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best reason to work at GHA that you can earn unlimited income in very short period of time. GHA offers draws for every new account you open and pay it weekly. commission is more then your expectation and higher then any other sales organization. GHA has long term relationship with all major IT manufacturers like Dell, HP, Lenovo, IBM, EMC, Microsoft, Apple and many more. GHA offers a a week paid sales and product training in company HQ at Scottsdale, AZ. After that you are assigned to a mentor for a few months to do the everyday business. It give you opportunity to work from home so you can balance your life with work and family. Management will help you so that you can reach your goals. You can reach any one including president of the company if you need help. Every one help each other and make GHA most friendly company you ever worked before.

    Cons

    If you keep a positive approach, nothing can harm you. Working from home maybe a challenge if you are not busy in the beginning. Make yourself busy in cold call or customer appointments. Result will start coming in and you will start getting paid.

    Advice to Management

    Doing great in managing so many sales and support staff. May want to minimize number of daily emails including daily sales reports. It may be better to get it on weekly basis.Sales people ask too many questions which could be answered by checking SharePoint, searching in Google or calling disty partners.

    I have been working at GHA Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been with GHA for around 10 years now and I am so happy to have found this job. It's been great to work from home and spend more time with my wife & family. There is no micro-management, you are paid better than any other reseller I have heard of, and you are rewarded with many different types of promotions & spiffs for doing what you are already supposed to be doing... selling. This is a job you can easily make 6 figures if you just put in a good work ethic for a few years and then reap the rewards of a happy, stable client base. Our pricing is usually competitive with the largest resellers out there and more flexible since we can negotiate our own pricing on a per deal basis with our distributors. There have been many, many times that I have been able to beat out the incumbent larger reseller by just making a phone call to our distributor of choice or direct manufacturer and negotiating a better price. I make at least another 10k or more each year in spiffs from GHA & other manufacturer spiff card programs which allow me to eat at wonderful restaurants, buy gifts for friends & family, & get all the little things for around the house. It's been a wonderful 10 years and I hope to have many more here. The flexibility to work anywhere as long as you have a smartphone really improves the qualify of life as well. No more being stuck in a dirty cubicle all day.

    Cons

    There are really only 2 challenges. The hardest one is yourself. You have to overcome complacency, laziness, lack of motivation, whatever you want to call it. No one is going to sell for you or give you the orders, you have to go out and get them. Once you have a thriving client base, you have to stay motivated to continue to put forth effort to grow and to keep them happy. Give them the best service and they will be loyal. The 2nd challenge is making sure they pay their invoices on time so you don't lose commission. It is inevitable that some clients will pay late. For the smaller orders it's not worth putting forth the effort to stay on top of those, but for the large ones, you need to be diligent. Make sure they have the invoice weeks before it's due. Become friends with the accounts payable contact and always be nice. They are much more willing to pay on time if you are kind to them when everyone else is probably making those aggressive collection calls that we all hate.

    Advice to Management

    I know you always do your best to keep the sales reps happy and give us an many selling tools as possible to help us succeed. I want to say thanks for everything.

    I have been working at GHA Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Here are some of the reasons I both enjoy, and profit from working with GHA. I work from home. Which cuts down both on driving time and expenses, and makes life much more convenient in general. No micro-management. I am free to run and organize my day in a manner that I feel is most productive to growing business. Great support from both the sales force, and all of the other internal departments. The owner is a self made salesman who built and guided this company from the ground up into one of the fastest growing VARS in the country. The Point of that statement is that he understand what it takes to sell, and what motivates both sales people, as well as new clients etc... *at my previous employer, none of my 7 layers of bosses had ever held a sales position, which is quite frustrating / Office Space type scenario* Lots of new promotions targeted at helping grow business and add new customers. Fantastic commission / certainly the best that i am aware of in the technology industry. I like money, and if you are successful in sales, it's better to be paid more money for the same job.

    Cons

    I see some people struggle to consistently work from home. The fact that GHA does not micro-manage, means reps need to be highly motivated and ambitious in order to succeed. You have to provide the necessary structure to your day in order to succeed. No one is going to hold your hand.

    Advice to Management

    No problems with management (isn't that a rare thing to say?)

    I have been working at GHA Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Prior to working for GHA, I worked in IT sales in a call center environment. Now that I work from home I get those additional sales that I had been missing out on because the call center closed at 5pm and we were not allowed to work late or or from home. This is one of the first things that I mention to new clients. They love the fact that I can be reached if they need me. GHA has the best pay structure for this industry that I have ever seen. Plus,The owner is always rolling out new promo's for you to get paid even more money.. whether it is attending lunch and learns, going on meetings, taking training courses.. all things which we should be doing anyway. To get paid additional for that is just another one of the many perks. It is refreshing to work for a company that really focus on growing and succeeding.

    Cons

    Working from home can be a double edged sword. You do not have a manager looking over your shoulder making sure you are doing your quotes, making your calls,etc. You have to be a self starter. If you get distracted easily or think you can work an hour a day and get by you will have issues and you will not last.
