    Pros

    It is a very unique enviroment. It is the best of both worlds. You get to run you business how you see fit but you get all the support you would expect from a 2 billion + company.

    Cons

    Because you run your own business, you are married to it. We can take as much vaction as we would likd but I rarely do because I'm afraid that a customer may have an urgent need and I won't be there for them.

    Advice to Management

    Love what you are doing!

    I have been working at SHI International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Privately-owned by an owner/CEO that works harder than you do, SHI plans for the long-term and not quarter-to-quarter. Ideas are welcome and new positions are constantly created to fulfill those ideas and deliver ever-improving products to our customers. This company is also: young, fun, constantly growing, a $5 billion org that considers itself an underdog.

    Cons

    If you need someone to tell you how to do your job every day you come to work, this place is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Never forget what I wrote above about the underdog.
