Great if you have nowhere else to go
Inside Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Somerset, NJMarch 12, 2019
SHI provides an environment that is stigmatized by favoritism and attention to minute details that are scrutinized while ignoring the achievements of an employee as a whole. If you can deal with the pressures of sales, go for it. Otherwise, look elsewhere, there are better ways to earn a minimum wage living while doing manager level work.
Pros
Free food every month or two
Cons
Stressful, favoritism based environment, unrealistic expectations from management

Integration Center will hire anybody
Integration Data Center Technician (Current Employee) –  Piscataway, NJFebruary 22, 2019
Experience doesn't count for anything when you get hired. This is good for people entering the job market but is terrible if you're established in a career but are forced to change jobs. The salaries offered seem fair for the work involved but not if you have adult bills to pay.

They do not hold anyone accountable unless you steal from them. One of my coworkers spends the entire day playing with his phone, despite being told not to do so. This shows a lack of accountability. Another coworker doesn't get involved in our core activities and management is seemingly fine.

Poor work and laziness are not addressed. There are gender-inequalities in work assignments and expectations.

This company is also a certification farm, making hiring decisions designed to maintain their partner status with major vendors. So if you have a certification and want to be paid to do nothing, get a job in the Integration Center.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
No accountability, no punishment for bad work/bad workers, "I'm telling" culture.

Acceptable Company
HP Software Sales Specialist (Current Employee) –  Somerset, NJFebruary 13, 2019
It was a good company to work for. I had a good position, good pay, and acceptable workload. In order not say anything negative about the company, I will refrain from saying more.

Would not recommend
Solutions Architect (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLFebruary 13, 2019
Would not recommend as a place to work. They should seek acquisition growth and abandon organic growth due to a lack of market awareness and understanding,
Pros
A lot of open time

Great and productive working environment
Accounts Receivable Clerk (Former Employee) –  Somerset, NJJanuary 30, 2019
Came in to work and continued on or started a new file to work on. I had freedom and leeway to go about things as long as work was getting done in a timely manner. SHI has a great work environment and makes it fun being there.

Horrible
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Piscataway, NJDecember 18, 2018
Worse warehouse job i ever got. they literally set you up for failure. FEIPPA (Warehouse Manager) is a pillow talker. Never met a manager that tries to start conflict between workers. Once they know your not a teachers pet you become the target. Shame on SHI. Warehouse management is ran by the wrong crew.
Pros
Nothing

Management is terrible

However at the time i felt my salary was lacking so I applied to another job. Company seems to be doing extremely well and in good hands. The company will continue to grow.

Great experience
Inside Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXOctober 27, 2018
Company is going places, and opportunity to big projects are there. Company could improve in base salary/promotion process. They have a big focus around trainings, and staying up to date with all the tech trends.

Great place to work but it is a grind
Inside Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXOctober 22, 2018
The environment is great and you get to work with great people. They are a lot of free lunches and opportunities for bonuses. It is a lot of fun to work there!

Typical Workweek
Enterprise Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Boston, MASeptember 11, 2018
Mondays and Fridays are set aside for Administration, Planning, and Partner educational sessions. The hardest part of the job is alignment with accounts as they change often. The other negative is the amount of turnover within the Sales Teams.
Pros
Training/Vendor Relations
Cons
Lack of Work/Life balance

Lots of initial training opportunities but lacking long-term career development support. Training stops after about year 2. Compensation is well below average.

Fun first job out of college
Inside Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 5, 2018
place is great if it's your first job out of college. However, the management is constantly changing and you're out of luck if you have a micromanager. It's a salary job and some managers will give you a hard time if you're 10 minutes late but expect you to stay 2+ hours if you have a lot of work to do.
Pros
lots of free food and perks
Cons
management, poor work life balance

I get to work from home and make my own schedule. I do wish we had better training and on boarding for new hires. It would also be great to have a better investment in resources.

A Great Company
Senior Inside Sales Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 19, 2018
SHI is an amazing place to begin your professional career from college. The management and overall sales training are elite. SHI truly knows what it's doing in terms of grooming salesman and growing the business.

SHI is growing at a rapid pace so that opens up opportunities for advancement into management.

The hardest part is the monotony but I feel that's with every corporate job. SHI had done a great job in the past by offering multiple gatherings, functions, and awards. To take employees minds off the stress of the job. I feel a few employees got carried away and SHI has cut back drastically on the "extracurricular" portion. There is a significant culture change going on with SHI and I will say for old employees it's not an issue. However, for new employees that aren't necessarily making money just yet. It's stressing them out quicker and creating a rotating door affect.

Overall SHI isn't perfect but it's pretty close. A great stepping stone for sales if it works out for you there. Give SHI 2 years you'll either have been promoted, created a solid book of business, or moved laterally to a different role. If none of that has happened use the experience and training you gained there to move to the next opportunity.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Commission changes

Good Place to start working out of college
AP Specialist (Current Employee) –  Somerset, NJAugust 12, 2018
This may be a good place to start working immediately graduating college, should you do sales. Other departments are not compensated well and extremely overworked. They don't focus on training and expect you to produce like a 20 year veteran without proper knowledge.
Cons
Lack of management/structure. Very little training

Good Company 4 Years Ago.
Inside Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 2, 2018
SHI was a decent company to work for 4-5 years ago. They made a ton of changes to comp plans and employee benefits over the past year in a half. They took away work from home days for tenured reps and slashed pay. It seems like they are trying to replace tenured reps with new hires that save the company money.

Their metrics are completely untainable in certain books and markets. If you are one of the lucky few placed in a good district you will succeed and can make great money. If you get a less favorable market they will ramp your quota the exact same way as a big metro, even if your market has less propensity to spend on IT ( such as markets where there are more cows than people). It’s completely flawed and you’ll find that only the good markets tend to retain Account Executive past year 3. Oh and by the way you have no say or control over what market they place you in.

In summary, if you’re well liked by SHI or lucky enough to get the right market, you can stay in role and make some good money. The same top 10-15 reps are consistently making great money, but they also started back in 2013 when the SMB division was fresh.

Don’t expect to make the same amount of money as them. They are a lucky few and SHI will no longer provide the same comp plan, nor are there enough good accounts to go around for you ever to make the same money.

Oh and forget about work from home days. SHI treats the SMB division like a group of grown babies. You will be micromanaged down to your last breath there.
Pros
Good trainings for the most part. Solid place to begin an IT career with many transfer options.
Cons
Micromanagement, Poor Employee Benefits outside free lunches

Good Place to work
Worker (Current Employee) –  Somerset, NJJuly 22, 2018
Overall good place to work. You can literally start at a lower position and work your way up. I feel like the pay could be a little better but who doesn't feel they deserve more money.
Pros
career advancement
Cons
pay could be a little better
