I worked at Softchoice full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The compensation for your job requirements is very fair. There is also quite a bit of opportunity to grow within the company (if that's what you want). The company is also well-respected in the industry.

Cons

It is, by a large extent, the most boring office environment. They try to overcome this by having a "hip culture" and being "dog-friendly", but no one cares.

Advice to Management

Management is strong and all well trained.

    I have been working at Softchoice full-time

    Pros

    Softchoice has a great corporate culture and it is evident in the way people interact with each other. They take pride in developing their employees and improving skills that are not only useful in career progression, but are transferable to any organization.

    Yes, the decor, dogs and beer are great, but it's the people you work with that make Softchoice a pleasant place to work at.

    Cons

    With the recent announcements of our senior management team, I was disappointed to find out they were all white, males. For a company with such diverse employees, you would think that upper management and executives would reflect that.

    Advice to Management

    More organizations in this industry are recognizing the need for diversity at all levels of the organization. Diversity breeds innovation and new ideas. This is the only way a company can truly move forward, much faster than its competition.
