I worked at PCM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

If you're just starting out, this might be an OK place to stay for a while. Quickly learn skills and move on.

Cons

Management is poor in all areas. The company has no idea what it is or where it's going.
If you look at the sales team, there is always a new face with the average account executive lasting maybe 60 days.

Advice to Management

Get some new ideas on how to run the company. You're no longer a 'retail' company.

    I have been working at PCM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to have PC Mall on your resume. Most companies know its a tough place to work.

    Cons

    Inexperienced management who use a slavery style principal. You take your break at the same time, you take your lunch at the same time. There are no stars as they don't recgonize talent or skill set. Just do what they tell you. Period.

    Advice to Management

    Canadian style management will not work in Chicago. maybe in Montreal or California as they are desperate for work. They make you work your butt off and make you go after new accounts just to increase the price of the companies stock, not for your own earnings. Everything that has to be fixed due to the companies negligence comes out of the employees pocket-regardless of who is at fault. They will sell their soul for a sale. I am amazed this company survived with this loony upper management system. I have never in my life encountered this zany type of style. As a result, they will continue to hire the lowest on the totempole employee who is desperate to find a job. A employee with any skill set would be crazy to work there-especially in sales.

    I worked at PCM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Incentives from vendors are better than what the comapny gives out and are with in reach to obtain, typical work day from 9-5, the staff is great and so is the support on the floor.

    Cons

    Structure, no creativity in working with clients, it's a call centre no matter what they say.

    Advice to Management

    Relax it isn't all about the money. Treat the client like a person then the money will come.
