Good experience, but don't expect to make a career out of it.

Pros

They do give decent benefits, and if you need something to put on your resume, it is good experience to list. Also, because of vendor visits and quarterly shows, there are opportunities to win gift certificates or small electronics, and there are plenty of giveaways. We never want for pens, sticky notes, and weird desk nicknacks. Any immediate managers or supervisors are approachable, and easy to talk to. They recently built a kiosk for breakfast and lunch. It's a bit expensive, but convenient, and the food is pretty good.

Cons

It is very difficult to move ahead, and if you do receive an offer, it may well be for less than your current job, when you take in commission. Things are changing there, and one SMB sales rep had said that it would have been unthinkable to have a promotion come with a cut in pay. HR is unwilling to negotiate. There is plenty of competition for other positions, as the morale among ISRs is low. Many of us feel as though we are expendable. Higher management is significantly less approachable than immediate managers, and they seem like they are out of touch with the general employees. While it is never stated, the inside sales employees are expected to finish their work, and leave either at their regular time, or when the work is finished-whichever is second. Some of us have worked 12- to 13-hour days.

Advice to Management

Take a closer look at the way that your workers are feeling. The employees are feeling lost in the shuffle with the reorganization, and there may well be a mass exodus in the near future.

    Pros

    Top level leadership is good. Internal systems are good cutting edge IT is actually used in everyday business. Work from home policies were very good.

    Cons

    The company lacked direction would change at the drop of a hat. Sales positions are a revolving door most people are out the door in two years or less.


  2. Great company to work for!

    Pros

    Career growth opportunities and the ability to make decisions on your own and with your team. Great company to make a name for yourself.

    Cons

    You run your own business basically in whatever role you are in at SHI. So you own up to your performance at the company whether good or bad.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great in assisting as long as they take the time out to hear the employee out.
