    Pros

    Worked at ScanSource for about a year and a half now. The culture is great for a young person fresh out of college. The average age in RFS is probably 26-27, so going to work is actually fun. I'm not sure how the pay stacks up against other entry level positions in the industry, but I know I make a little more than a friend of mine in his second year in banking. Management also believes in profit sharing with employees, and make large contributions to employees 401(k)s.

    Cons

    Work can be tedious, and RFS doesn't get any of the gifts, perks, and catered lunches that are showered on the sales team, but it also makes for a little more camaraderie.

    Advice to Management

    For some of the younger employees, the option for a cash bonus at the end of the year would mean a lot more than contributing to the 401(k), although I do feel that they were very generous with the bonuses this past year. Mike Baur is genuinely a great guy, not your typical CEO.

    Pros

    Security in employment Open door policy Excellent employee recognition The company is employee driven and makes it a point to show how the employee matters.

    Cons

    Workers have not caught up with the time and want to continue to do things "how they use to do them?"

    Pros

    The culture was fantastic, the people were welcoming, and it was a great experience. Great company that continues to grow and adapt with today's environment.

    Cons

    The only negative would be the salary; however, that is to be expected given that it is a lean-operating distribution company.

    Pros

    Company culture - respectful of all positions, from the guy who sweeps the floor to top management, everyone is treated equally. Good pay. Great opportunity for advancement. Work hard and be rewarded - not an environment of "playing favorites". Good benefits, excellent profit sharing and 401k match. Excellent, accessible senior management.

    Cons

    Sales positions start at low pay, with potential to earn well with hard work and patience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Best employer I've ever worked for, bar none.

    Pros

    - Quality work/life balance - Management and colleagues who actually care for and value you as a person - Competitive pay with unlimited earning potential if you work hard enough - There's not so much of a thing as "cold calling" - as part of the distribution channel, your resellers/vendors know who you are as soon as you say "Scansource" - They sell and deliver wonderful value adds for their resellers and cross-market visibility to their vendors. You can feel confident that you're selling or representing a quality product - Corporation is big enough to offer all the benefits and perks you could want, but small enough that there's very little corporate douchebaggery

    Cons

    - There is a good ole boy network in play - upward mobility is largely dependent on who you know - Lots of "promotions" are actually lateral moves across business units - It's not all rainbows, lollipops and flowers - there's a fairly long ramp-up period if you're in sales, and on a bad day, dealing with certain resellers and/or vendors can be enough to drive you to drinking

    Advice to Management

    CEO Mike Baur is a brilliant man whose vision will guide this company to further heightened success. I have nothing but respect for him. He has a solid team directly underneath him as well. All pieces of advice I have to offer are improvements that are already in the works as I type this.

    Pros

    Executive management values their employees and treats them as such. They are highly visible and make sincere efforts to know their employees. Great environment.

    Cons

    Present systems are effective and do a good job, but they are in need of some updating which is upcoming.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep doing what you are doing. It makes ScanSource a unique and desirable place to work. I appreciate the fact employees are not just treated as a number.
