    I worked at Softchoice full-time

    Pros

    Nice office space. Provided with a lot of training

    Long working hours with hard, stressful work. Don't let things like beer carts and ping pong tables fool you :) . Also, there is definitely a lot of nepotism going on (or at least did go on when I was there)

    I worked at Softchoice full-time

    Pros

    The culture and the people were great. The work was always interesting and there was a good spirit in the office all the time.

    Cons

    The beginning was tough because you are not given a book of business, and you are to start cold calling companies on your own. Since I've been there they have changed their practices however.
