    I have been working at Softchoice full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Access to all levels of leadership, tons of internal growth opportunities. Potential for lucrative compensation

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say, same ups and downs you’d get with any sales job. There’s a big learning curve though for new reps an it can take some time to make money but the training and time spent at Softchoice will pay back dividends.

    Advice to Management

    Probably not a role for someone with short term vision or fresh out of school trying to land a job. Continue the vetting process for career minded individuals willing to be coached.
