    Good Medical Benefits. Dental Plan is decent. Also has a decent 401K and matches most then other companies.

    Compensate your employees on a regular basis.

    Pros

    Westcon has great benefits and you get to work from home. You get to work with teams all over the world. They are well equipped for employees working from home such that you don't really feel isolated from coworkers.

    Cons

    You work long hours due to time differences of some of your coworkers. This causes some delays in finishing assignments. There is no clear path to being promoted.

    Pros

    ○ Relaxing environment, great leadership and excellent benefits
    ○ Technology -- Everything just works here, which you are definitely not going to find at another company. They have lots of different systems and tools to use.
    ○ Compensation for employees is very fair.
    ○ People are great

    Cons

    ○ Prefer to hire externally as opposed to promoting from within
    ○ Not as fast paced as what I am used to. Just an observation, not a con.


  8. If you don't like work/life balance and if you don't mind working for an employer that doesn't care about its employees

    The new software that was implemented 2 years ago is still a disaster

    Pros

    The company supported training, but there was insufficient time to always attend available courses.

    Cons

    There is very limited work/life balance. Everyone is expected to work outside normal business hours.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more direct contact between senior management and employees. Senior management spends too much time traveling, rather than managing resources.

    Pros

    Westcon is a decent compay. Good benefits, room for growth, consistent training. You can have longevity there.

    Cons

    To many chiefs, raises are far and few in between. Need to value employees more.

    Advice to Management

    Give more consideration to your employees overall, especially those in the day to day operations. Give more and better raises Not just to account managers and VPs.
