I worked at SHI International full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Low base salaries but huge upside if you can consistently exceed your quota. It can be a laid back, flexible work place but that can also depend on your manager. Benefits were good, health insurance was great and cheap for a single person. Perks from vendors, such as sporting events, contests with generous payouts, spiffs, etc. Team selling is great if you have a good relationship with your inside rep (which I did, so it was a positive experience for both of us). The CEO has a great vision for the organization as a whole and while it's not always executed well, there is a commitment to customer satisfaction.

This is a great position to get a lot of experience in IT in a short amount of time. You can make a lot of connections at major manufacturers which could lead to more and better career opportunities. Stick it out here for 2 years and you could have a lot of doors opened to you.

Cons

Very little opportunity for advancement if you aren't willing to relocate to NJ or Austin. Low base salaries for experienced sales reps so the financial peaks and valleys can be extreme. Management can be unappreciative and short sighted about retaining good talent. There was more and more micromanagement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize the good people and work to retain them. Every one might be replaceable but it most likely won't be with anyone as good.

    Pros

    Its a mixed staff. Always friendly..work events and lots of free food! Management always ready to help. This is definitely a good place to start. They hire and promote from within so always good for you.

    Cons

    Forget about having plans on month end ...or quarter end or year end ( December 31st). You could be stuck at work till 11 at night. It can get mundane after a while..
