Pros

I have been with the company a little over 4 years, and it has been an incredible ride. To watch this company grow at the rate it has, but still maintain that "small company" feel has been great. Even with revenue over 1.5B and 400 employees our president still has an open door policy for all employees. Of course there are amazing perks with the job (trips, shoes, etc), but that is not why people stay. People stay because of the growth opportunity within as well as the chance to learn everything there is about selling to the Federal Government. The motto here has always been "You get out of it what you put into it". Truer words have been been spoken.

Cons

The culture at Carahsoft is very young, with lots of energy, coming from a strict, buttoned up, Fortune 500 company there can definitely be a period of adjustment.

Advice to Management

Continue to grow the people within your company. I think you will find good results.

    Pros

    - truly teaches you the ins and outs of the federal IT sales industry; train you in the traditional business model of the industry as well as the cold calling/account management process
    - everyone here is young, so it's easy to relate to your coworkers
    - fun little perks here and there such as a random car payment day, company trip (usually to Jamaica!)

    Cons

    - LOW PAY...it's acceptable if you're living at home for your first year out of college, but otherwise you'll be living paycheck to paycheck for SURE
    - long hours
    - sometimes unreasonable goals related to bonuses...you're basically doing the work of a manufacturer inside sales rep but getting paid about 1/4 of the pay for it

    Advice to Management

    thanks for teaching me the ropes of the industry...great place for a first job! maybe increase the base pay of the reps so that there will be less turnover

    Cons

    people always seemed to be stressed to the max at work, long hours, new people get yelled at a lot

    Advice to Management

    Don't let your team leads yell at people below them
