    I worked at Softcat full-time

    Pros

    No better place to gain sales experience after leaving University.

    Cons

    The industry and being a VAR, doesn't bring much of a bigger mission than making great money and having fun.

    Advice to Management

    Greater professional development & learning that isn't role specific.

    Technical Consultant

    I worked at Softcat

    Pros

    As I was not office based could not think of any, I am sure if you are in your early 20's fresh out of uni then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Worst place I worked for as a Technical Consultant. If I was in sales then this would probably be a 5 star review, but from my point of view I felt like an over used machine.

    Advice to Management

    Do not put new senior tech consultants under the same umbrella as juniors. Be honest about the average working hours. Listen to the concerns of employees.
