    I worked at Softchoice full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Good as a first job out of school, if you are completely "green", and need to get feet wet in sales environment
    2. Good if you own a dog and need to bring it to work
    3. Strong, experienced management at the very very top

    Cons

    1. Tends to be fragmented, disjoint, shallow
    2. Low salaries compared to industry (depends on your benchmark)
    3. Pretends to be fun and exciting - but more often comes off as fake and insincere
    4. Inexperienced ineffective management makes it hard to grow and develop, or satisfy customers
    5. Difficult to succeed in your role if customers barely tolerate the company, but just buy if low price
    6. Frequent change of directions due to misunderstanding industry and resulting mismanagement
    7. Difficult to keep focussed if business is slowly receding away
    8. Seems like a high investment risk
    9. Not at all suitable for technical experts who are looking to build skill and experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what you want to do, then do it. Clean house with management deadwood. Recapture the originial vision.

    I have been working at Softchoice full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been given a lot more opportunities at Softchoice then I would have at other companies. I've been challenged, promoted and have made some amazing friends here.

    Cons

    It's a sales company so if you aren't in sales, there aren't as many opportunties.
