    Pros

    The environment is nothing like your typical IT sales company. I've met some of my closest friends at work and really enjoyed my coworkers and managers along my path to a very successful and challenging career. SHI also provides great benefits and job security. The free on-site health clinic, gym, cafe and numerous employee/partner social events make the work environment very satisfying. Plus SHI is one of the few companies out there that continues to put up record sales numbers every year. Great place to work, definitely somewhere that fits into my long-term career goals.

    Cons

    Upper management tends to have poor management skills and not have enough of a connection with what's going on with everyday employees. The company and employees would really benefit from management-level training. Managers should also have more accountability for their actions.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a work from home policy for tenured employees. The work world is becoming increasingly mobile, so employees who are trusted and have proven themselves over time should be allowed to work from home on occasion. Also consider extra vacation time/reward for 10+, 15+ and 20+ employees as a "thank you" for the commitment, dedication and hard work over the years. Milestones like these are not common in the IT industry, and should be rewarded.

    Pros

    Opportunities galore, friendly and satisfying work environment. Extremely busy, challenging, time flies by.

    Cons

    Salaries are low compared to the national averages.

    Advice to Management

    Rapid growth requires rapid responses; management needs to be more proactive and more willing to help their teams during busy times. Roll up your sleeves and help your department. Be generous with positive feedback, it goes a long way.

    Any manager at SHI earned their position by dedicating themselves to this company. The management team is professional and yet cordial, they walk the perfect line between professionalism and amiability.
