      Pros

      Great people Good benefits Focus on work/life balance Lots of side perks

      Cons

      Lots of young people which can be a double-edged sword. Most think they are not compensated enough and find trivial things to complain about because they have no clue what it's like to work at other places. There is a definite lack of maturity on some teams and a general sense of entitlement. HR coddles them and turns non-concerns into things that seem huge, which reinforces this bad behaviour.

      Pros

      Good company culture and great managers. Nice perks.

      Very young demographic in sales and not the best work/life balance. It can be difficult to change roles within the company.

      Great Company, even better culture, meh pay for the industry

      Nov 15, 2018 - Territory Sales Representative in Toronto, ON
      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Softchoice Sales Academy and hands-on mentorship to enable your success - Great people, beautiful office - Great work/life balance and work-from-home perks once you are tenured 6 months - Phenomenal mentorship from management and upper management - strong diversity and inclusion committments - Great place to start

      Cons

      - The salary is low for the amount of work you do. (Salary should be around 50K in my opinion MINIMUM to start) - Depending on your sales territory and it's exposure it may give you a setback in doing as well as your peers. (Ie. Canada V.S Some U.S territories) - You only get commission after you hit 75% to your plan otherwise you get $0 - Commission strucutre complicated and nobody gets it - The draw they give you for the 6-months of $625 needs to be paid back in sales - The "promotion" structure is BS. You work very hard to get to a TSR Level 2 and you only get a $3,000 A YEAR increase and your quota goes through the roof. If you were once making decent commission, you get set-back by this promotion as it will take a while to ramp up again (unless you have inherited some great accounts) - High turnover rate due to the competitive market - a lot of people at Softchoice leave for a better salary offer
