    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, great place to start your career to learn, will train you to be successful at your job

    Cons

    Pay is average at best (and non-negotiable), miscommunication w/ management often leads to frustration, some departments don't necessarily share the same company culture

    Advice to Management

    More open dialogue and better communication is needed. Also, improvements to pay structure are needed.

    Pros

    Fun Culture Great benefits There are two gyms and classes to take during lunch hour.

    Cons

    Poor Management No plan for individual growth

    Advice to Management

    There was no training in my department. I am unsure of how the process goes in other departments but there really needs to be a training program starting out.

    Pros

    Nice culture, friendly environment, clean, concerned about the local community as well as the environment, upper management cares about employees, parties and small gifts occasionally

    Cons

    Minimal opportunity to advance, middle management shows favoritism to certain employees, hours vary

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to branch out and try new things in the company. Give them the tools and desire to grow in the organization. Push them to advance. Don't feel so satisfied with everyone remaining stagnant.

    Pros

    Young,vibrant community with an excellent corporate culture and fun company events. Great work environment and work-life balance. The corporate headquarters are located in Greenville, SC which is a beautiful up-and-coming city and a good place to raise a family.

    Cons

    Depending on the department, there are limited opportunities for serious advancement. Entry-level salaries are reasonable, but do not necessarily increase significantly as employees advance within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in employees who receive promotions in order to retain top talent

    Pros

    Great company culture and friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    The salary (if not in Sales) is below average. Your reward for staying with the company is more work due to the constant turnover. In order to advance, you must be willing to work 11:30 am - 8:30 pm. Your raise is the shift differential pay to work those hours.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the employees you have. That would allow you to spend less time interviewing potential new employees, who will also seek employment elsewhere due to below average salary offered.

    Pros

    Great work environment, friendly co-workers and open communication between all levels of management. Good flexibility when it comes to lunch hours, breaks and vacation time.

    Cons

    Compensation not on par as you continue to advance within the company, entry-level hours (i.e. 11:30 to 8:30) are not preferred and limited opportunities for advancement long term.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to fairly compensate your most valuable employees otherwise they'll continue to take opportunities external to ScanSource.
