    I have been working at SHI International full-time

    Pros

    Within the ITAM group there are plenty of opportunities for growth and change. You are only limited by your drive (and maybe technology). There is constant change, it is never dull. Yes it is challenging but so is the market space.

    Cons

    yes there are issues as there are with any organization and I would never believe a review that says everything is perfect.

    I worked at SHI International full-time

    Pros

    They pay your parking fee

    Cons

    No sick pay, maternity pay, toxic culture of bullying, poor management. Punished for sharing your ideas if they're not the same as management's ideas. Management have pet favourite people that can get away with what they want. Unempathetic and unresponsive to people's needs. People have been told no if they need to work remotely due to medical reasons, surgery etc and you are expected to live off of SSP.

    I worked at SHI International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Learning and development is fantastic!

    Cons

    1. They do not work in hand with key partners in the IT channel. This makes development difficult wh²en you are viewed as a small reseller. 2. The learning and development is too much. First year is nothing but learning. As a salesman I took the role to make money and learn. They told me no one makes money their first year. 3. 3 sales mangers left the role in 3 years 4. High turnover, 150% last year. 26 reps left while only 15 were hired. 5. 3 months in a row payroll got multiple reps pay incorrect with little help as the section is in the US. 6. Random 1% hit on all Gross Margin was which is not mentioned when they hire. 7. Sales reps salary £19-25k. 8. SHI boosts their US presence which is large but they are extremely small in the IT channel...
