    I have been working at Bechtle full-time

    Pros

    The training provided at Bechtle is second to none. Although I didn't come from an IT background, I was given the foundation at Bechtle to prosper within the industry. From the get go you are given all the tools you need to succeed and shown that the sky really is the limit here. Within the company there is a great atmosphere, it really feels as though you are part of a team from the first time you step through the doors...

    I have been working at Bechtle full-time

    Pros

    Good line management and good nurturing. However if you fall by the wayside it can be hard to get back on track. Good incentives and opportunities for rewards alongside the salary. Team environment is a good mix between fun and focused.

    Cons

    Basic salary is poor compared to the sector and is a common grievance amoungst staff. When management is challenged on this, staff are often told if they want more money they need to work harder and get more commission. Commission structure eventually gets to a lucrative level although this can take years and years. Toxic employees with no desire to work never seem to be under any threat of dismissal.

    I worked at Bechtle full-time

    Pros

    Nice facilities Good call out days with opportunities to win Occasional activities outside of work arranged Easy to make friends within the company once you are “in”

    Cons

    The business is divided between the young who are keen to work and earn the money and the old school team members who earn off the back of others. The managers simply sit back and let the orders roll in as they have got good accounts who order regularly. The younger team members don’t have such a luxury and have to hard sell to get the sales in. HR is a joke, contracts never updated. HR is run by one person who is rarely...

    Advice to Management

    Fairly split accounts between the whole sales team, the older members always get priority. Classic case of the richer getting richer... Completely overhaul the accounts/HR/customer service team.

    I have been working at Bechtle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working at Bechtle is the best career move I have ever made. I have been supported from day 1 like no other company I have worked for, the training and development is second to none. Whilst there is a strong and structured training program you are responsible for your own accounts and delivering the high service that customers and mangement expect. The atmosphere in the office is one of a team even though each...

    Current Employee - New Business Account Manager in Chippenham, South West England, England

    I have been working at Bechtle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    As an account manager you are given total control of the accounts you look after. From the start to the very end everything is under your control and it is up to you to deliver the service customers require and build relationships to last for years to come. New Business are a friendly, young team of people who are really ambitious and want to help create a good workplace for all in it. Bechtle looks to continue to grow...

    Cons

    This is not a con as such but advice to what people's expectations should be. Bechtle is not a place to work if you are looking for repititve work nor a place to sit back & relax. This job requires people who are determined and hungry to be the best at what they can be. This isn't for everyone but for those who are willing to put in the right effort the hardwork can really pay off.

    I worked at Bechtle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big and ver interesting Customer base. Some really bright minds on most of the Teams. Bechtle Bonn is lined up pretty well in regards of customer needs and has departments for all hot IT Topics being Microsoft, Networking, DC, Virtualisation etc. .

    Cons

    Currently collaboration between the different Teams has a lot of room for improvements. I feel the Management currently struggles to utilise the full potential of there teams. Most Managers look more on there Personal Achievement rather then doing what a Manager should do. Developing, Supporting, Coaching and Mentoring doesn't seem to be a number one priority.

    Advice to Management

    Make Mentoring and Coaching a number one priority and fundamental Management Concept. Improve the collaboration between the different Teams to make use of the full Potential. Support High Potentials . I think that Bechtle Bonn could learn a lot from there HQ Neckarsulm!
