    I have been working at PC Connection full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoy going to work, I love my coworkers, my team, my managers, I love my customers (most of them!). I'm paid well and fairly. It takes a lot of hard work to get to this point, and sales isn't for everyone, but success can be achieved. Some fun perks include free meals, tchotchkes, trips, prizes, gifts.

    Cons

    It can seem daunting for new hires to figure out the lay of the land, how to get things done that only tenured people would know how to achieve. There aren't always official procedures to follow and training only gets you so far. If you are a scrapper, and diligent, you can overcome those obstacles though. Walls are there to show you how much you really want something.

    Advice to Management

    Communication could be improved.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, great manager, collaborative culture, good communication, good vacation time and benefits

    I have not worked with them, but have seen micromanagers. No big cons.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to mention

    I have been working at PC Connection full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They allow you to pick and choose which companies you want to work with. everyone here is awesome! there is an abundant amount of free food/lunches/breakfast's. Great vacation time when starting out. if you put in the time, you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    This isnt really a con, but you start from scratch and build your business. It's mostly described as hard work, which some people dont like to do. At the end of the day, it is not for everyone, just like every job.

    Pros

    The best thing about this company is that you are in control of your paycheck. If you are willing to work hard and do the right things for the first 2 years you will be making the money you are looking for! It is all about seeing the forest through the trees!

    Cons

    The first 2 years are difficult, and the pay is low to begin with. Once you establish your book of business the job is much more enjoyable and financially lucrative!

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to make the first 2 years a bit easier on the sales people - nobody wants to work for 25K a year!

    I have been working at PC Connection full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful. Management is always there to answer questions and the people are friendly.You can easily get ahold of upper management and they are flexible in terms of time off. Perks are great and the compensation is average.

    Cons

    Resistant to some change and raises are minimal (2-3%). Can be a "boys club," as can any other organization.

    Advice to Management

    Consider changing your approach to sales. Cold calling isn't all the rage anymore.

    Pros

    The pay is great, company bonuses around every corner, the culture is friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    The workload is intense and as in any sales community you start at the bottom and work your way to the top.

    Pros

    Great coworkers,systems are technologically advanced, and great support from management. Company supports and promotes training for sales staff. Professional at all times.

    Cons

    The workspace cubes were too small. There isn't many downsides of working at PC Connection. I would say the downside for me is that I am not working there anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Many of the training staff was removed during the layoffs PC Connection had back in 2009. Recently a training specialist position has been posted. It would of been nice to receive feedback on why I was not called back.
