    I have been working at Softchoice full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are decent when they arent pissed from being screwed over.

    Cons

    So many here:
    Pay sucks, management are rookies who don’t know how to manage heavy hitters, training is inadequate, employees are made to feel worthless regardless of how much experience they bring to the table, only employees who are truely happy are the ones who have no prior experience and don’t have bills to pay.

    Advice to Management

    Be better. Worry about sales numbers first then worthless KPI’s. Focus on helping your reps close. That’s what your there for.

    I have been working at Softchoice full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Been at Softchoice for 3 plus years and still love coming to work every day. Office is full of high-quality individuals in a great location in Chicago. Lot's of catered breakfasts and lunches, vendor happy-hours, Friday beer carts, volunteering opportunities and Softchoice events out of the office are some great perks, but it's the people that make it. The opportunity to make really good money is there if the work is put in and it's some of the best sales experience you can get.

    Cons

    There's a lot to learn and soak in and success is not always immediate, but what you can learn in a short period of time outweighs that in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the right people for management positions

    Pros

    Great professional work experience, leaders in our field, personal and career development is an active experience, great benefits, work from home

    Cons

    Work from home can be challenging, can take on too much work because you want to help everyone out, team collaboration could be better from being remote workers (not all locations are remote)

    Pros

    Nice office, a lot of great sales people within the office.

    Cons

    They have strong leadership and great employees, but its hard to get help when needed. Everyone always seems busy, you have to learn a ton of stuff on your own...Sink or Swim at times

    Advice to Management

    Try to spend more time with new employees to provide a great starting point.
