    I worked at SHI International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job in and of itself is fairly simple. There is a lot of outside team support and if you play the politics game you can go really far in this company. You also meet a ton of people in the industry and it’s a great place to launch your career because SHI is known for being a difficult employer. If you can last a few years there you gain credibility with their competitors and partners. They used to have uncapped commission and when you hit your goal, the payoff is more than it is elsewhere. Their training and development was good but the guy who ran it left so who knows anymore. If you live in Austin there are a lot of groups you can join to meet people outside your line of work in the company.

    Cons

    Their sales leadership and management gossips about each other and for the most part they act like children playing “grown up work place”. Their engagements are fueled by alcohol and often times inappropriate jokes, but no one ever pressured me to do any of those things so I can’t say they force a toxic environment on you, although it’s certainly there if that’s your cup of tea. They change the script a lot and they change your pay a lot. If you have a manager who is busy being somebody you’ll basically be on your own if you’re a remote employee. Their remote management is pretty sub par. Their leadership comes up with a lot of new ideas that are basically recycled ideas using different words than they did the previous time they talked about that “new idea”. When people bring solutions to the table often times they act like you’re complaining instead of bringing a solution to the table, which I found odd because they constantly ask us to share our ideas. My Director told me after my first year there that he didn’t expect me to last a year so it tells me they under hire and world class organizations don’t under hire. That’s what box checkers do.

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

    Pros

    Free meals, the commission at the time was good, great way to be introduced to the tech field.

    Cons

    Lots of corporate politics. Must brown nose to advance. If you speak your mind, expect to be let go. Individualism isn't valued. Some metrics are not valuable, such as 50 dials a day into a limited number of accounts. Quantity over quality- which just leads to call padding.

    I worked at SHI International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good training, lower than expected turnover for a sales company. Had some great managers who really made the job worth it.

    Cons

    your experience at the company will vary depending on your manager. Lack of visibility into upper managments plans, having to make important career decision with minimal time to consider.
