      I have been working at Softchoice full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      In sales, both are given to you. You have people around you who will collaborate and try to make you better. Good place to learn how business is done efficiently. I'd assume every business has its struggles; There are some solid and other less solid systems in place. Good training/onboarding.

      Cons

      Some strange hiring choices. Not commonly, but sometimes.

      I worked at Softchoice full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Company culture, dog-friendly environment, people are usually nice to work with, benefits are good for full-time employees

      Cons

      So many changes on the marketing team in such a short period that decreased the team morale. People who have worked at the company for 3, 5 and even 10 years have left for another role elsewhere (essentially because of a higher pay). That leads the current team to have more work to do since the backfills take months to happen, if they ever do. Strategy from upper management changes constantly so there is no consistency....

      Advice to Management

      Stop micromanaging. Be more consistent in your strategy and avoid changing the focus so many times. Concentrate on what's important and not the operational tasks that take up most of the employees' time. Encourage an honest and open feedback from your team before they leave to take another job outside the company.
