    Pros

    the folks who work there are great to work with

    Cons

    Extreme hours and sudden layoffs - only done a person at a time over a period of time so they can say they have never laid off. It is kind of constant there.

    Pros

    Young,vibrant community with an excellent corporate culture and fun company events. Great work environment and work-life balance. The corporate headquarters are located in Greenville, SC which is a beautiful up-and-coming city and a good place to raise a family.

    Cons

    Depending on the department, there are limited opportunities for serious advancement. Entry-level salaries are reasonable, but do not necessarily increase significantly as employees advance within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in employees who receive promotions in order to retain top talent

    Pros

    Great company culture and friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    The salary (if not in Sales) is below average. Your reward for staying with the company is more work due to the constant turnover. In order to advance, you must be willing to work 11:30 am - 8:30 pm. Your raise is the shift differential pay to work those hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the employees you have. That would allow you to spend less time interviewing potential new employees, who will also seek employment elsewhere due to below average salary offered.

    Pros

    Great work environment, friendly co-workers and open communication between all levels of management. Good flexibility when it comes to lunch hours, breaks and vacation time.

    Cons

    Compensation not on par as you continue to advance within the company, entry-level hours (i.e. 11:30 to 8:30) are not preferred and limited opportunities for advancement long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to fairly compensate your most valuable employees otherwise they'll continue to take opportunities external to ScanSource.

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere, most managers encourage innovation, great benefits, profit sharing, and it's just plain fun. Experienced management, and a company that really knows how to execute its business plan.

    Cons

    Career advancement is an issue (management has acknowledged this, and I hope they are working on some changes in this department,) and the money could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more money, and throw some new titles around, please.

    Great culture - friendly people, lots of social activities, good vibe.
    Great at helping you manage a life outside of work. Very lenient on scheduling time off, mid-day appts and misc. personal obligations

    Cons

    Lots of opportunities for new career experiences but most are lateral moves and involve no merit increase.
