  3. "Inside sales"

    Pros

    Opportunity to generate excellent salary based on commission and bonuses.

    Good benefits and excellent coworkers. Opportunity to grow is great.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Mid management has virtually no power to truly assist reps. Gosls and mission of company change with the wind.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees on the sales floor work more freely with greater flexibility. Give senior reps more say. Don't treat a new sales rep like you would a veteran

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

    Pros

    Very professional, knowledgeable co-workers, who are dedicated to contributing to the success of an incredibly diverse company. There are many long term employees of 10, 20 years. Compensation and perks are great! Comprehensive Medical insurance coverage is offered and can included dental and eye coverage, if desired. Discounts are provided for non-smokers. 401k provides a generous employer "match". On-site gym, business casual dress code, Friday "jeans" and welcoming atmosphere add to the positive working environment. Innovative technology and proprietary software add to a positive work experience. Good location, headquartered on the North Shore of Long Island. Close to all.

    Cons

    Medical Insurance Benefits cost (premiums and out of pocket) is higher than expected, but there are more than 2 choices to choose from and most doctors are included in the "in-network" less expensive plan. Additionally, there is a bare-bones "afordable care act" plan that provides the least expensive option. I would not call any of these plans "Cadillac" plans, as out of pocket expenses can be as high as deductible each year, in addition to the premium. A 61 day waiting period is long - and depending when you begin employment can be 2 months and 3 weeks!

    Pros

    Employees have fun and work hard. Pranks are common (like filling the boss' office with balloons). Bring your dog to work day each week. Fitness center reimbursement, great benefits. Employees select the music. Management listens to and encourages everyone's opinions, suggestions, and ideas.

    Cons

    High learning curve, new people are often "new" for a long time because of the depth and range of knowledge they need to acquire while learning their job. Training is provided, but it's still a high learning curve. Typical office: cubicles and lack of sunlight.

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

    Pros

    Up to 2011, the company (trading as Misco) transformed into a nimble and dynamic reseller that embraced it's customers, employees and the vendor community. The culture was customer centric and the majority of employees were happy which was reflected in the low attrition rate across all country locations (8 in total). The mantra was very much driven by US management who brought a 'work hard, play hard' mentality that gave life to the organisation. Misco had become one of the leading IT resellers in Europe and a profitable division of Systemax.

    Cons

    New CEO hired in 2012 drastically changed the organisation.
