    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

    Competitive, hardworking and fun atmosphere. Each sales team has complete control over their business and how it is run. The culture is great and they hold a lot of events for the employees.

    Cons

    There can be some issues in communication with the management team, or the different sides of the sales teams.

    Pros

    Career growth opportunities and the ability to make decisions on your own and with your team. Great company to make a name for yourself.

    Cons

    You run your own business basically in whatever role you are in at SHI. So you own up to your performance at the company whether good or bad.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great in assisting as long as they take the time out to hear the employee out.

    Pros

    A fast growing company brimming with diverse culture, professionalism can be found at every corner but SHI still knows how to bring fun to the office environment.

    Cons

    Being involved with a fast growing company equals out to a LOT of work, working long hours is nothing new to an SHI employees but our passion drives us to excel.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    I have been able to grow on a lot of different levels both personally and professionally while working here. As a company, the motivation to continue to strive for greatness is contagious! Not only is the company working as a One Stop Shop experience for the customers day in and day out, I feel it is a One Stop Shop experience for the employees—the environment is one where you can learn, grow, and continue to be creative with the resources available making it exciting to come to work every day.

    Cons

    A challenge that stands out, is that you need to keep up with the fast pace that has been created due to the hard work that everyone is putting into motion.

    Advice to Management

    To continue to support your teams on every level as much as possible as we continue to grow!
