    Pros

    Work environment is good. Great management team.

    Pros

    some of leadership is WONDERFUL and really invested in their team success. good company culture.

    Cons

    US HQ office is INCREDIBLY unprofessional. company vision is constantly changing. account managers and inside teams are very overworked and wear too many hats, making is difficult to get everything done in a day. employees are going to burn out as there really is no work/personal life balance.

    I worked at SoftwareONE full-time

    Pros

    Work from home. Lots of PTO

    Cons

    None of the work from home or PTO matters if you make $500 commission in the entire year.

    Advice to Management

    The re-seller market seems to be fading fast.

    I worked at SoftwareONE full-time

    Pros

    Some great people around.
    Good licensing knowledge in house.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover. Senior management has no idea what they are doing.
    Services teams are not equipped to deliver.
    Commission structure is weak to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Get some new people in who are not closed minded yes men who can make good decisions around people and retention....it used to be that people were important to the business. Not so much anymore.

    I worked at SoftwareONE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good support team out of India. Good inside support staff out of Milwaukee. Option to work from home, as they are too cheap to rent office space.

    Cons

    Current North American Leadership is super frugal and will not grant pay raises. Quotas are unreasonable and not negotiable. They use the high quotas, combined with the comp plan to deprive you of commissions. Leadership is always looking for ways to deprive you of compensation, so as to improve the bottom-line. In bed with KKR = Greed is Good. Losing tenured employees like crazy. Look at other competitors before you join here.

    Advice to Management

    Live by your own SoftwareONE values. Appreciate your tenured employees and understand that growth is not infinite. Get some leadership with more than a high school diploma.

    I have been working at SoftwareONE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    SWO is a very good company if you are willing to put the hard work in to learn and thrive. Being a global organization there are lots of opportunities to travel and work with people in other cultures, there is even employment opportunities overseas. I have been able to see a lot of the world because of my time at SoftwareONE.

    Cons

    Certain markets are not as established as others and there is a lot of challenges with some of the service offerings whilst the company continues to transform. Remuneration could be better. The commission model changes every year and is hitting the sales teams pockets each time it does.

    Advice to Management

    Keep transforming, we will get there.

    I have been working at SoftwareONE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Culture and great people with realistic expectations! Everyone is here and expected to help colleagues. Everyone who has been here for 1+ year specializes in different software solutions and licensing agreements and are there to help anyone looking for help on that specific part of our business which helps a lot!

    Cons

    Separating yourself from a "inside sales" point of view is hard as it is mostly account management of current book. Goals are to grow current book and so you don't get to do as much lead generation or new business development.

    Advice to Management

    I know everyone learns at their own rate but maybe have more of a structured learning and training program set in place.

    Pros

    There are no pros. It's been a while since I worked at SWO but i'd like to put another negative review on the top of their glassdoor page because they deserve it. This place was so awful. If you're reading this because you're thinking about joining SWO, don't waste your time.

    Cons

    Top 3 worst places to work.

    Your services are weak.
