Pros

PC Connection and its subsidiaries offer a decent income with a pleasant work environment. There are many layers to the company so there are plenty of opportunities for advancement and new challenges. Rewards from the company and its vendors make PCC positive place to be. The training is a plus as well. The cons below have little effect on the entry level or middle management positions.

Cons

Senior management tends to be obsessive about metrics and do not always manage to the strengths of the individual. There is a tendancy at the upper echelon to be very wishy washy about direction and focus. Middle-upper management is averse to change and wields a lot of power in thwarting positive direction changes and planning. There tends to be a lot of political infighting amongst the higher ups.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a positive direction for growth and stick with it. Changing paths on a regular basis, setting a course and then not having the fortitude to stick with it for the long hall, always falling back on what worked yesterday instead of trying to add to the company's strengths...these weaknesses will drive the rank and file crazy and geatly diminish their respect for you. Treat your people like people, not sheep who can be fed drink tickets at corporate events, given a few meaningless platitudes in a slick video presentation, and then put back in the pen.

    Pros

    Free lunches several times a week, an employee purchase program, great benefits, a decent base salary, you learn a lot about the IT industry.

    Cons

    Often dealing with inter office politics, management can be rigid at times, they don't do much in the way of marketing so you have to market the company yourself to land accounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Progress to catch up to competitors offerings is very slow, expedite the growth of the line card and put a serious focus on increasing your your authorizations.

    Great Company to work for if you can stand sitting in a cube and cold calling all day.

    Pros

    prizes, food, outings, good training program, their is potential to make very good money however need to be there for a long time because beginning pay is not enough to live off of

    Cons

    monitored dials and outgoing talk time instead of total talk time and you're in a cube all day. Accounts of employee's leaving are given to favorites instead of those who deserve them sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    instead of outgoing talk time look at total talk time, spread accounts more than just one team when people leave the company
