    Pros

    Fantastic Rewards, Fun & Positive Working Environment

    Pros

    This is an exciting, vibrant, unique place to work, where no day is ever the same. Rewards are incredible, the commission structure is very generous and there's no chance of ever getting bored.

    Cons

    There is quite a flat management structure, so if you are looking for job title progression, annual promotions and the like this isn't the place for you. However, if you want uncapped commission, the chance to run your own business and have a large amount of autonomy this is the place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Softcat culture going as the company grows.

    Pros

    Softcat is a fantastic place to learn the ropes of sales very quickly and work in an environment with lots of autonomy and flexibility. Each account manager essentially runs their own business within Softcat and manages accounts both from a new business perspective and long term account management. As a fast growing company if you have good ideas Softcat is the place to be as all senior management sit amongst... the employees making it very easy to share ideas. If your idea is good and you can help implement it, they are likely to take it into consideration and put it into practice. Training is offered on a continuous basis and managers are all player managers so have hands on experience to help their colleagues.

    Cons

    There is a very flat hierachical system at Softcat so the opportunity to progress through titles is limited. However, commission is uncapped and all employees have the opportunity to progress their career through training, additional responsibility and just generally getting involved.
