The best job culture I have seen around! The management treats their employees as family. A typical day at work starts at your desk and ends there too but there is many vendor meetings to break up the monotony of your week. There is not one thing thats enjoyable about the job because EVERYTHING was enjoyable!
Inside Account Manager - International (Current Employee) – Somerset, NJ – 9 February 2017
If you like sitting in a cubicle and inputting orders all day, then this is the job for you. Quoting, taking calls and sending emails is the every day life. Everyone is a child fresh out of college and has no sense of working with your heart. You will constantly be told to work less, care less and do the bare minimum to survive here. Otherwise, you will go insane with the monotony.
Shi is a great place to work with advancement from the warehouse to the corporate office. The jobs teaches you alot about computers,hard drives,memory etc if you didn't know about Shi is a great place to learn
Solid pay a recent graduate from some sort of university or college. 5 weeks of paid training.Regular 9-5. A Lot information and pretty fast paced. Easily weeds people out that aren't sales driven. Revolving door employment. Competitive environment. Hardest part is dealing with rejection and not seeing any benefits for a LONG time.
1K bonus after 6 months and free lunch on occaions
It's a very young enthusiastic work culture. It does entail a lot of cold calling which can be difficult at times but there is always somewhere there to coach you through things. The base salary is livable off of but not assuring for the long term. They cater lunch around three times a week and host a lot of happy hours and understand the work/life balance pretty well. It's a good transition job from college to the real world but not a place that a lot of people make long term careers at.
SHI is a place that appeals to the softer needs in a job. Culture, throughout, from upper management down is very fun and easy going. This almost looks like coupled with the free meals and social events as though they need to cover up and compensate for a very small salary. The base salary is extremely low for such a profitable entity that doles out all of the sales cycle responsibilities to the revenue earners. As the source of income beyond the poor compensation there is a lack of support and development in a concentrated and meaningful way. There are many, many, processes and hierarchies to navigate which waste time and cause confusion where better systems alone would improve functionality and add time into the revenue generating actions. Beyond the processes the hierarchy's to navigate and channels of escalation can be convoluted and shrugged off easily. (not my department syndrome) Good learning experience for new disposable employees. Management should focus on making employees happier by developing skill for the role and its many functions involved, by way of development and proper compensation.
Free lunches and social events, Great culture
Work life expectations far exceed compensation, Development lags behind responsibilities and poor processes add to this dillema

IT Account Manager (Current Employee) – Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire – 27 December 2016
Friendly environment, job security, holidays, good management, very good sales force, reputed partner status in UK, not only believe in world class support but it also maintain good customer relationship, Gold partner with numerous vendors i.e. Microsoft, VMware etc.
To be raw this company just needs to pay more competitively, situation may be more proprietary to specific department, but commission goes down as tenure duration goes up despite encouraging and approving quarterly reviews-seems to me that values the gaining of business and NOT the specific rep...
Many friends have been made working here. It feels like a family at times. My direct manager is great - however much pressure/micromanagement from higher/top level management. This has led to a loss of focus from the direct manager on dealing with the specifics of day-to-day customer/client interactions.
Micromangement from the director level surpassing the direct supervisor.
Polar opposite of what you're 'sold' in job ads/interviews.
sales (Former Employee) – Milton Keynes – 21 November 2016
The U.K. Arm of SHI puts far to much emphasis on getting reps to hammer prospects with facts about SHI rather than striking up good, meaningful conversations - The initial 3 weeks of training is more like 3 weeks of brainwashing new starters into being able to reel off 'brag' type facts, most of which do not apply to SHI UK or the UK market what so ever. Training is 90% SHI and 10% about IT and the IT Industry. A majority of the 'facts' and USP's relate to the US offices NOT the UK branch.
The internal workings and support leave a lot to be desired with some of the most important processes in sales being handled ONLY by staff in New Jersey, leaving your hands tied on many occasions until your colleagues across the pond get into the office. Not great. The only culture in the building is one of cliques and sloping shoulders - if you aren't well received by some of your new colleagues, consider your card marked. If you are liked, you can expect preferential treatment, free leads and free spending accounts - if not, you're in for a rough ride in many ways.
The fun and energetic environment you are told about is completely non existent, as is the case for career progression opportunities. Certain upper management figures are unapproachable, unwilling to hear opinions or new ideas and are completely out of touch in regards to what kind of market their sales people are operating in. You can also fully expect to have your probation period extended, even if you're ticking all the boxes.
There are some great people at the company but your positive experiences with thosemore... good people will be far outweighed by negative experiences with some of the companies over inflated egos.less
Some genuinely great people
Terrible working environment, terrible leadership from the top, too cliquey, high turnover of staff, no realistic incentives or support for new starters
