    Pros

    This is a fantastic company to work for and thoroughly enjoy my job. It's both challenging and at the same time a great learning experience too. You are always encouraged to expand your technical knowledge to help in providing solutions to our customers.

    Cons

    I've been here a short time and have nothing bad to express.

    Pros

    Flexible career paths. I was able to work three different positions within my first two years with the company

    Cons

    A little old fashioned in there ways. Little or no permission to work from home. Salaried employees have to clock their hours every day

    I have been working at Connection full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded frequently with trips, tickets, money, freebie lunch/dinners with drinks and 'prizes'. Snack carts, lunch & learns, frequent 'check-ins on early stages of career within company, Frank Conforti, Sean Hayes and Lisa Bull are motivational and help with the positive work culture.

    Cons

    Commission is very low in the beginning. Base pay is a bit low. Certain direct sales managers are not very helpful- if you end up with a bad one, you will be guaranteed failure. Benefits are expensive- almost half my pay check!

    Advice to Management

    They need to micromanage their direct sales managers and sales trainers.

    I have been working at Connection full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    The money is good if you work hard, get lucky, and are driven to succeed. Contests, promos, and spiffs give you a chance to win trips and extra cash. You can make a good living here but don't expect anything else.

    Cons

    Zero room for constructive criticism or feedback. No real career path. Corporate culture frozen in 1999. Subpar in-house tech, oddly enough. Disinterested upper management. Take it or leave it approach from C-levels. Brutally difficult to gain telecommute privileges; flexible hours are virtually unheard of. Shoddy, aesthetically displeasing work environment. Few genuine perks other than money. Bizarre, borderline cultish...

    Advice to Management

    Value and listen to your people and stop acting like you're the only game in town. When people leave or are unhappy quit assuming they're the problem.

      I have been working at Connection full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Company provides employees with a decent amount of PTO.

      Cons

      I have been working at Connection full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I have been working at Connection for just a few weeks. I had 5 interviews with very nice people. All the interviews were positive and went well. The instructors doing the onboarding training really care about getting you started. It was long days but in the end worth every minute. Everyone sincerely greated me and welcomed me at the corporate office. I am so excited about this new chapter of my career.

      Cons

      The onboard training classroom was so cold. Everyone froze the entire time.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you are doing. You guys know what you are doing.
