    Pros

    Great people, fun culture, interesting technology, work hard play hard, fast paced.

    Cons

    Limited career advancement opportunities, work overload at times if you are in sales or product management. Big pay gaps to move laterally. Limited training and development. Pay is not competitive for more senior roles unless you are at the very top.

    Pros

    Worked at ScanSource for about a year and a half now. The culture is great for a young person fresh out of college. The average age in RFS is probably 26-27, so going to work is actually fun. I'm not sure how the pay stacks up against other entry level positions in the industry, but I know I make a little more than a friend of mine in his second year in banking. Management also believes in profit sharing with employees, and make large contributions to employees 401(k)s.

    Cons

    Work can be tedious, and RFS doesn't get any of the gifts, perks, and catered lunches that are showered on the sales team, but it also makes for a little more camaraderie.

    Advice to Management

    For some of the younger employees, the option for a cash bonus at the end of the year would mean a lot more than contributing to the 401(k), although I do feel that they were very generous with the bonuses this past year. Mike Baur is genuinely a great guy, not your typical CEO.

  3. Great place to start out working. Fun, laid back environment.

    Pros

    Fun Culture
    Great benefits
    There are two gyms and classes to take during lunch hour.

    Cons

    Poor Management
    No plan for individual growth

    Advice to Management

    There was no training in my department. I am unsure of how the process goes in other departments but there really needs to be a training program starting out.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
