        I worked at SHI International full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Resume fluff. You'll meet some great people. Sometimes they feed you. Gym and classes.

        Cons

        Hard to get fired so most people do nothing or minimum, leaving those who care frustrated. No room for growth unless you are in sales. Terrible benefits; get ready to pay a lot if you have an emergency. Speaking of, HR will harass you the day after a surgical procedure for their documents. Managers with no managerial experience. Low salaries. Fraternity culture. Huge turnover - would rather hire new than pay talented...

        Thanks for providing your feedback. Unfortunately it contains disconnects that could have been clarified while you were still with our company. We don’t believe it possible for SHI to simultaneously post 18% year-over-year growth and maintain one of the industry’s most efficient support ...

        I worked at SHI International full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        wellness program (while i was there at least) casual can gain necessary experience

        Cons

        -Incestuous work environment leads to drama in the work place -Micromanaging and cattiness by managers -Deceiving job titles: Sales Enablement Specialist that had absolutely nothing to do with sales. More of a Data Analyst Role at half the average data analyst salary - you will end up "wearing many hats" and you will NOT be awarded for your dedication come end of year/salary increase time -HR Department is a JOKE

        Thanks for providing your feedback. Although your advice to management was to provide “Clarity,” your description of the day-to-day activity of a Sales Enablement position is crystal clear. A large part of the success of SHI’s account teams comes from the “behind-the-scenes” work ...

        I worked at SHI International full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        - Great company for people coming out of college. - The training you receive is incredibly valuable from the L&D team during the Academy. - If you stick it out long enough you’ll make 6 figures easy. - The people at SHI are awesome! I made a ton of close friends and really enjoyed the culture. - If you get the right accounts you can make a ton of $. - After a year, companies will start calling you because of...

        Cons

        - Base salary could be much more competitive - Tons of growing pains but understandable just not ideal - Huge portfolio of solutions so it can be hard to sound informed about all of the different vendors/products

        Advice to Management

        Keep crushing it. Thank you for the experience and lessons learned.

        Pros

        -Training was great - Free food and gifts every Wednesday and Friday - opportunity to make money down the road if you stick it out long enough - great first Sales job.

        Cons

        - Favoritism is a huge problem. - Micromanaging is also a huge problem. - Lowered standards and cut pay, originally it took a bachelors for the job, they lowered it to associates degree to fill training classes. - Unrealistic growth, projecting 30% growth every year. Luckily they are a private company. - Some of the management team are simply unfit to be managers - Treat 20 something year olds like kindergarteners...

        Advice to Management

        Stop micromanaging people. It pushes out the smart intelligent people who do not want to deal with it. The clock in and out rule for a salaried position is ludicrous. The management and silly rules made it feel like it was high school, but it was a real person job. It’s also pathetic to lower standards to fill training classes. That’s not how you build a quality department. Invest in the people you have or else the...
