      Pros

      Good health and wellness benefits. Two on-site gyms in Greenville office, as well as a wellness clinic. Fitness classes, on-site Bistro if you can't get out for lunch, annual biometric screenings and free flu shots for the entire family. Work environment is pretty positive. Monthly company meetings keep employees updated on new programs, financials, charitable work in the community (ScanSource does A LOT of great things in the community), etc. Most of the executive leadership team is great. CEO is visible and takes time to talk to employees, get to know you. Salaries are fairly competitive.

      Cons

      Sometimes it's hard to focus in an open office/cube environment. There can be a lot of chatting around you which can be distracting. There's a sense of limited career advancement opportunities.

      Pros

      This is a fantastic place to work and I want it to be known that the Pros far outweigh the Cons in my opinion. - Friendly atmosphere - Family Oriented - Reasonable Schedules - Clean Work Environment - Job Freedom - Volunteering Opportunities - Travel Opportunities - Community Focused

      Cons

      The pay could definitely be better. Career advancement opportunities are few and far between. Decision making is often misplaced. There is good deal of micromanagement going on.

      Minimal career advancement opportunities and low pay make real growth difficult. They were experiencing growing pains with systems and internal processes.

      Pros

      Great people, fun culture, interesting technology, work hard play hard, fast paced.

      Limited career advancement opportunities, work overload at times if you are in sales or product management. Big pay gaps to move laterally. Limited training and development. Pay is not competitive for more senior roles unless you are at the very top.

      Pros

      Great family atmosphere, most managers encourage innovation, great benefits, profit sharing, and it's just plain fun. Experienced management, and a company that really knows how to execute its business plan.

      Cons

      Career advancement is an issue (management has acknowledged this, and I hope they are working on some changes in this department,) and the money could be better.
