"Its an Animal House"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Great way to learn IT industry in all ways. You can become very dangerous learning the industry from SHI. Decent pay.

Cons

The leadership says they care...don't believe the hype. Its a shark tank, period. Stay away, lest you be eaten. Very selfish company with a "me me me" mentality. Everyone also constantly passes the buck, unwilling to help. Instead, you get a snarky condescending used car salesman atmosphere. This company has a lot of hubris (just go to a sales conference awards show to see what I mean). However, theres a sprinkling of some genuine good people there.

Advice to Management

Realize that just because YOU think you have a value prop that is sooooo good, doesn't mean much. In reality, customers view you as self serving jerks, rather than truly caring consultants. Simplify and hire/train more true professionals rather than some 21 yr old college kids. Your corp division is a bunch of out of control punk kids.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Young, vivacious, but professional environment

    Cons

    -Management brought in from competitors has skewed company's growth plan & vision
    -Disparity of how management is held accountable for their actions
    -Very stiff consequences for minor offences committed by some individuals and no consequences for larger ones committed by others

    Advice to Management

    For upper management specifically, review the standards to which you hold your managers on the team level (inside & field). Set precedent to what is acceptable/unacceptable behavior and hold all to the same consequences.

    Also note, hiring more heads doesn't always equate to more profit.

    I have been working at SHI International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to meet and work really great and energetic people, the commission rate is decent compared to other companies

    Cons

    Managers have little upper management training, you receive little to no training and the expectations are very high,

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales people when they have complaints or concerns and actually address them and not just tell them they're being looked at.
