I worked at SHI International full-time (more than an year)

Pros

fun fast paced laid back work place and the majority of the people and are fun to work with on a daily basis.

Cons

very long hours and if you don't kiss management butt you are just another employee and possibly wont make it very long with the company. Upper management is part of a good ole boys club that came from one of SHIs competitors. It use to be a great environment but the company has gotten a little to big for its britches. My advice is if you are looking to get a start for high pressure faced paced sales give it a shot but beware that you will just be a number or expendable if something doesn't go the way your manager wants it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to the owner of the company drop the dead weight that only looks out for themselves and bring in managers who really care about employees instead of themselves.

    Pros

    you can make alot of money here at times.

    Cons

    I'm an Inside Account Executive and life here is....ehhhhh. Your first year quotas are not bad, but they double every year after. If your in the commercial space, you will be fighting outside account executives for accounts, and in general will not be given any great accounts to prospect. The base pay is not enough. Most people leave SHI after a year.

    To sum it up....look for other options if you can. this job is not worth the stress and management will lure you in with lofty dreams of money. Everything is 50/50 here. If you are successful here, you are one of the very few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    either be committed to SMB or committed to outside sales. This company is going to implode on itself if it does not come up with a clear path. The inside and outside account executives are at odds with each other right now. They are viewing each other as competition.
