    I have been working at ScanSource full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
