    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.

    Kontras

    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).

    Rat an das Management

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

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Softchoice (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Fun downtown/Liberty Village location. Vendor events can be a good time. The training that you receive is certainly highly valuable. This role is ideal for students that are fresh out of College/University.

    Kontras

    If you're one of the lucky anointed ones, ie: your Aunt works in P&G (HR) or if you manage to finesse your Sales Manager so that you get given the golden goose egg accounts ,you'll do well as a TSR at Softchoice. UNFORTUNATELY that represents 1 out of 10 Reps. The rest of you suckers will be making 40k + as your salary, while getting skimpy commissions, while working 9 hours a day. Your targets will vary from Rep-to-Rep because they assign you a bunch of *mostly deadbeat accounts, and then apply a 20% year-over-year growth to that account, so you get a different target every month. This target is supposed to be aligned to you tier, but the system is highly flawed, and there is essentially no level of fairness. Softchoice's Managers can't even explain your commission structure to you. When you use their ICM (commission payout) tool, you don't see a breakdown detailing what you were paid per order. So you just have to BLINDLY trust their sneaky little system. You also only get paid on gross profit. You close big deals and make tiny commissions. It works out to being 1-2% off the net revenue on many occasions - sometimes even less! The majority of Softchioce's teams and Sales Reps DO NOT HIT PLAN. As a result of their low-ball salaries, working at Softchoice is a mess. It's a constant REVOLVING DOOR. Once you put in some time and see how awful their commission structure is, you leave and get a real tech sales job that pays $65k + elsewhere. Softchoice's ELT are mostly all Americans, and they operate as such. ELT is taking all of the profits home for themselves, while the workers that actually keep the company profitable get paid below the standard tech benchmark. EVERY ROLE AT SOFTCHOICE IS DRASTICALLY UNDERPAID by as much as 20-30%. It's not just sales that suffer from low salary pay, it's the ENTIRE COMPANY! Not a good place to work if you're trying to make a decent living in an expensive city like Toronto, Chicago, or Seattle. At their 2019 launch they ended the launch by boasting of raises being offered. Those raises were for an extra 2 or 3k to Junior TSR's. They stiffed all Senior TSR's and that's how they chose to end their annual 2019 launch. Thanks, Softchoice! How classless.

    Rat an das Management

    ELT needs to stop hoarding all profits. Wake up! Follow your own advice... why are you using an EOS/EOL application like Cisco IP Communicator in 2019? What a joke! Pay salaries that are on par with the market, otherwise your staff will continue to leave at a rapid pace!

    Pros

    People on my team were nice but were too passive and accepting of management bullying

    Kontras

    Very long hours and below average pay. If your in accounting or finance don't work here. They promote bring your dog and free beer once every month and other fancy things that sound nice but in finance your so busy and over worked you never get the opportunity to actually do any of these things. In finance management is aggressive and very opportunistic.

    There is no work life balance here.

    Rat an das Management

    Be fair and actually follow your policies.
