    Advice to Management

    Softchoice is a great place for tech sales. I’ve worked at companies 4 times it size before and never received such great sales training. The Sales academy is really effective and super informative, the support throughout it is very helpful. Honestly, they set you up for success. The company itself is innovative, senior management seems very strong. My only issue is with direct managers, sometimes I think re-evaluating...

    I have been working at Softchoice full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ive worked at softchoice for over 3 years and made some of the best friends of my life. Lots of free events, trips, prizes promos, Easy to get promoted(been promoted 4 times since being here), dont listen to the negative reviews about salaries it is very easy to overachieve your targets and make more money then OTE says.

    Cons

    sometimes a little more freedom in TSD would be helpful!

    I worked at Softchoice full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Culture, dogs in office, the people

    Cons

    High expectations for sales targets, classic "corporate bro" feel in a competitive space. Most important, they tell you that you don't need to have a background in tech, but to sell the product and services you very well need to be knowledgable in the tech field or you will struggle to stay motivated.

    Advice to Management

    More focus in training the new hires about the actual products and technology they will be trying to push for partners like Microsoft, Dell, Lenovo, etc. and not just focusing on sales skills
