    I have been working at ePlus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have managed to keep some great people and have very talented engineers across the country. They have a good base of large, well-known customers and a very diverse portfolio to sell from.

    Cons

    There is little opportunity for advancement and not much in the way of employee development. Engineers have to keep a timesheet and are constantly nagged to make sure they submit them on time even though it appears little is used from them. No matter how hard an engineer works, the glory goes to the account manager and little to the engineer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your comp plan for bonuses to engineers. They sell much more than you give them credit for and develop more business than you realize. Not all sales come from account managers.

    I have been working at ePlus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture and attitude is not welcomed. Willingness to train new employees and a great place to learn many different technologies.

    Cons

    Need to get away from the regional business plan. Not a good place for job growth, as far as management, and it stability can often be an issue (you can win employee of the month in your department but if things get slow the following month they are all over you, even if you are not an AE). Helping improve company internal processes is not rewareded, you are only judged on the sales you are associated with. Team environment does not exist, everyone is in it for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get away from the regional 'silo' and start working like a big company. Stop micro-managing engineers on a timesheet basis and pay us as a group instead of a region (will facilitate team building). Encourage and implement paths for management opportunities. Take our ideas seriously instead of only depending on upper management for change/input.

    I worked at ePlus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Support from ePlus Corporate is great, I wished I'd had the opportunity to work with the NoCal folks that are rock stars! They are a truly inspiring team!

    Cons

    Engineers are constantly in training, however there is too much reliance on relationship selling only. There is no clearly defined sales methodology, and front line management is weak (in experience and in being able to offer senior level advice or coaching.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When putting in place 'ALL" layers of sales management, ask them what their game plan is for opportunity creation, and enterprise account management. Set realistic sales quotas, not quotas set by accountants. Interview salespeople regularly, ask them for anonymous feedback on what they like/dislike about the current position before assuming you know the answers.

    I worked at ePlus

    Pros

    I was able to gain plenty of experience in different aspects of the business. Friendly, comfortable and flexible work environment. Able to balance work life and home life.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Hard work is recognized and appreciated but not rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify employees with potential for growth and hard working and nurture their potential and reward them when necessary. Pay closer attention to all employees and not just management.
