    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
