What kind of career opportunities exist at Softcat?

Pros

A lot of opportunity to grow and develop. Ideas get listened to and taken on. I get to work with passionate, nice, clever, helpful, pro-active, knowledgeable people with a can-do attitude.

Cons

You need to be ok with a bit of ambiguity. We accomplish great things in this company and a lot of the time it's not set in stone and we might be asked to deliver the moon on a stick. But we're acutally very good at delivering moons on sticks ;)

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

What is the feeling of job security at Softcat?

Pros

Good comp package, ability to run your own business within a business, autonomy to approach selling/account strategy your own way, open culture, management keen to support wherever possible and lots of opportunities to develop in existing roles and new roles as they become available. Softcat is booming, great to be a part of the growth story.

Cons

Increasing growth target, limited number of new businesses to prospect due to number of sales people within the business. Basic could be better. Doesn’t offer flexible working to sales staff.

Keep doing what you’re doing, but make sure that you keep up with the times and have more confidence in your employees to work from home if they choose to.
