    I worked at Systemax full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Up to 2011, the company (trading as Misco) transformed into a nimble and dynamic reseller that embraced it's customers, employees and the vendor community. The culture was customer centric and the majority of employees were happy which was reflected in the low attrition rate across all country locations (8 in total). The mantra was very much driven by US management who brought a 'work hard, play hard' mentality that gave life to the organisation. Misco had become one of the leading IT resellers in Europe and a profitable division of Systemax.

    Cons

    New CEO hired in 2012 drastically changed the organisation.

    If you are invited then you will be hired most likely unless you say something very stupid. They will try to sell the job for you as the fluctuation is very and always in the need of staff
