    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...

    Pros

    Work from home days. Bring your dog to work.

    High turnover Lack of technology integration Slow, lateral growth

    Advice to Management

    Move faster with your employee's desires to grow. Capitalize on top players across all levels of the organization. If you have a "Sales Advisory Board", chances are you might need this across the entire organization.

    I have been working at Softchoice full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work-From-Home policy / is1 day/week. Work-life balance is there.

    Cons

    Poor use of technology for an IT solutions company. Legacy architecture and/or favouring "Managed Service Partners" makes for disparate IT components and therefore extremely inefficient working conditions. Daily book of business (workload) becomes harder to manage as working conditions remain stagnant. Employees at Customer Service level experience are being asked to implement workaround solutions of unintegrated infrastructure....

    Advice to Management

    If your employees want to grow, help them grow. Highlight their strengths and take urgency in helping them seek out internal opportunities before they leave.

    I worked at Softchoice full-time

    Pros

    Great Location and Dog Friendly Environment. Rich Vendor Investments which funds a large amount of IT product training. Great place to learn about hi-tech with access to top tier vendors.

    Cons

    Male Dominate Company / Female leaders in traditional (female) roles. Majority of women leaders and reps have left the company. Monthly Sales Cycle is taxing on people and resources - Customers are highly attuned to the cycle and know where they have full negotiation leverage (end of the month).

    Advice to Management

    Selling computers over the phone needs reinvention and create design thinking Fix the Leak at the top (mgt)
