    Let's get things straightened out.

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsOutstanding training, and I would go so far as to say the best in the industry, PCM is transforming their business model, and most of these reviewers are push over sales reps. Sales requires tenacity and a hunter mentality. Yes, many of the old reps need to get booted out, as they don't promote the business, but PCM is very proactive right now in promoting their business strategy. Where this company excels is in the SMB market, as SHI and CDW target the huge megacorps... You get the opportunity to grow your business and be recognized if your an exceptional sales professional.

    --Brand new building on the 8th floor, next to the river.
    --Amazing training program, and knowledgeable IT professionals. "Product Champions."
    --Outstanding Management team, who will go the extra mile to help you any time you need it.
         1)Big companies don't care about coaching, they just care about numbers.
    --Great team building events, and awesome Director and experienced Management Team.
    --Expanding Business, and had the strongest first quarter ever.
    --Boosting their infrastructure, soon will be hosting our own cloud for clients.
    --Tons of opportunities to be VMWare certified, Cisco certified, and any other IT certifications you want,
    --PCM will support you and take care of you if you are an exceptional sales member. Tired of these lackluster sales "drones" whining about PCM.
    --Tons of team outings, and you get frequent Microsoft, Samsung, etc reps coming in and constant training...
        1) Plus, if you are exceptional, Microsoft reps, VMWare, Cisco, etc reps will take extra special care to do what needs to be done. They have Spiffs as well.

    Cons--It's sales. You have to build your book to make money, but it is a competitive salary, and structured around how well you perform.

    Advice to Senior Management--Keep up the good work. All new management in the past year, and PCM is really boosting their business model. I thoroughly enjoy the location, and truly like working for PCM. They genuinely care about your success. That's the benefit of working for a smaller office!

    Team Work

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    Montreal, WI

    ProsGood high energy job for those people who know what it takes to make money. If you cannot pick up the phone and talk to people this is definitely not for you.

    ConsHave to be self motivated. It was a sales job. One cannot be in sales and not expect to encounter rude people. You just have to be consistent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRelax and Chill. Appreciate the employees

    Great Catalog Company

    Business Development (Former Employee)
    El Segundo, CA

    ProsExcellent Pay, Benefits and the new office in El Segundo is state of the art. Technology available to employees is cutting edge. Really great technical people to work with.Could be a really great competitor in the IT Services Industry.

    ConsPCM as it is called now, ate 23 different companies and still has 23 different presidents. Divided into silos it spends too much time bouncing emails from silo to silo until the sale opportunity has expired. Still operates its sales force like it is a catalog company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of all the three letter silos and work as one company. Let your senior sales reps become field reps that concentrate on outside sales.

    Poor Management and Pay

    Account Executive (Former Employee)

    ProsI really have nothing I can say that was a pro working for this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out a plan and stick to it to see changes.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
