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

Pros

Bring your dog to the office

Cons

Upper management means well but doesn't have the experience outside the company to move forward or implement change.

A LOT of inbreeding - they hire internally to a fault – Almost a union atmosphere. The person that has been there the longest gets the job. Qualifications mean nothing.
They claim a "great culture" but it really lacks one
Management comes up with policies as needed too suite every situation in their favor
Training if far from what is needed for the sales staff
Inside sales upper management doesn’t seem to have a grasp on what really goes on.
There is a group of ‘leaders’ in Toronto that look out for each other and ensure they cover each other’s back.

Sorry to say but replace most of you with outside experienced people

    Pros

    Softchoice has a great corporate culture and it is evident in the way people interact with each other. They take pride in developing their employees and improving skills that are not only useful in career progression, but are transferable to any organization.

    Yes, the decor, dogs and beer are great, but it's the people you work with that make Softchoice a pleasant place to work at.

    Cons

    With the recent announcements of our senior management team, I was disappointed to find out they were all white, males. For a company with such diverse employees, you would think that upper management and executives would reflect that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More organizations in this industry are recognizing the need for diversity at all levels of the organization. Diversity breeds innovation and new ideas. This is the only way a company can truly move forward, much faster than its competition.
