    Pros

    Employees become good friends and are very welcoming to new employees. There is a casual dress code, a gym on every campus, and you are allowed to listen to music through headphones*.

    Cons

    Everyone seems underpaid and I'm convinced that they make the job include manual labor to convince employees that $12/hour is suitable for the level of work they're doing. Many people who I've spoken too are overqualified for the work they are given.

    Advice to Management

    Hire Industrial Engineers to optimize the workflow so that the work can be easier for your employees and instead of having employees do 5 different jobs, some of which involves scanning barcodes and labeling boxes.

    Pros

    Since it’s sales, there’s a huge potential to make money

    Since it’s sales, if you don’t have a good territory/account set, you won’t make much money

    I worked at SHI International full-time

    Pros

    Stable, low turnover in most departments, lots of opportunities to advance within the company. They are still growing. Good overall culture. Onsite perks like cafes, gyms and health clinic.

    Cons

    Their Wellness Program makes you submit to a yearly health risk assessment, or they significantly decrease the employer contribution to insurance premiums if you aren't in compliance. They tell you it's optional, but really it's not, because premium increases for non-compliance are crippling.

    There's no company policy that allows for flex hours or telecommuting. And most departments don't allow it.

    Pay is good but not great, especially when you factor in the above benefits issues.

    Pros

    Good People and a fine place to start career in tech sales as you learn about it all.

    Great educating program

    Enjoyable atmosphere at times.

    Cons

    "female and minority owned" is shoved down its employees throats at every turn. I wish they'd take a step back from making this a "talking point" to customers and prospects.

    Little to no real career growth, lateral moves unless going outside the company.. of which, they frown upon advancing yourself with one of their partners.
