      I have been working at Softcat full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Highly successful, well led company. Starting a career in sales isn't for everyone and not everyone who does start will make it, but for driven, intelligent people there's a genuine opportunity at Softcat and good rewards on offer.

      Cons

      There's a bit of a blokey atmosphere which can be a bit grating. Honestly though not much to complain about.

      Advice to Management

      Don't get complacent.
