    Great first job to get SOMEthing on the resume. Don't stay more than a year.

    Pros

    It's very easy to get hired at Carahsoft, and it's pretty difficult to get fired. The annual company trip to some tropical destination is pretty enticing to some. There are lots of prizes and spifs that one can earn while working there. The average age is low-to-mid twenties, so this provides a young, fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Cold calling, cold calling, cold calling. The young atmosphere lends to a lot of unprofessional attitudes. It's hard to "see yourself" going anywhere at this company. Did i mention the cold calling? The salary is not great, and you can't pay your bills with gift cards.

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

    Pros

    corporate culture is great- young and work hard, play hard. You have a lot of responsibility from the start, full cycle selling, vendor relationships, contract negotiations. Training program has been totally redesigned since I have been here and its really comprehensive and ongoing now.

    Cons

    I read some of the previous reviews and think management has made solid steps to address some of the concerns. The promotion path is clear and more focused. The management structure is more defined and I feel there is more room for me to grow here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    trhe company is growing SO fast, dont forget to reinvest in the employees
