  5. "The first 5/6 months can be slow. But most people who work hard and are patient can get good money."

    I have been working at SHI International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Earning potential is as good as any entry level job. Good coworkers. Free lunches and breakfasts on a weekly basis. Not much micro management. Prospecting in the first few months can be tough, but if you persevere pretty much any one can make it through. Most reps in year 4/5 making more than 100k. They usually hire from the inside. Customer discounts on their products

    Cons

    Customer service once you build your pipeline can be a little stressful. Training course feels a little too much like high school and doesn’t focus on what’s really important to the job. Experience can really be dependent on your manager. Because it is an entry level job, and most reps are straight out of college, your manager can sometimes feel like your are still a child and hold your hand through things

    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...
