Inside Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 22, 2016
I loved this job. It was easy, fairly competitive, and had great benefits for a recent grad. As long as you took care of work, the day was easy and you got rewarded for you efforts.

Great Enviroment
Inside Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 14, 2016
Wonderful environment. You will definitely like to go to work. A lot of free lunches, happy hours and swag. You learn a lot about the different manufactures and inside sales. Keep in mind, cold calling is not for everyone. Management tries to make it fun. How well you do also depends on luck and territory.
Pros
Free lunches, happy hours, awesome management and enviroment
Cons
cold calling

Good First Job
Inside Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Somerset, NJAugust 16, 2016
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.
Pros
1K bonus after 6 months and free lunch on occaions
Cons
rarely commission a until a year mark

Hit or Miss
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Ausitn texasAugust 15, 2016
I learned a lot. Not all of this experience was bad.

When I first started, I was in a training class of 25. I was the 6th last, to leave.

I was very close to becoming very successful.

Went from 300 reps to about 750. This showed incompetence in the leadership at SHI.

I had 1 manager for a year = LOVED IT

switched 2 more times in 3 months = HATED IT. Basically had to start all the way over.

They play favorites. If you can be one of those, then it's smooth sailing.

Good first job then get out
Inside Sales (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 1, 2016
Not what I expected coming into this job. The atmosphere is young. Free lunches. But management is not good and there is not much room to advance. They just restructured the entire job to territory sales and a minimum of 1 year in the role before consideration to move elsewhere.
Pros
free food
Cons
terrible management

Decent Place to Work
Inside Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 25, 2016
Its a cool company with a lot of young folks to work with. Also there is a lot of free stuff which is pretty cool. Unfortunately, the base pay is kind of low, and it takes plenty of time to build a book of business to make decent money. I recommend if you can handle cold calling 50+ dials a day and have a good work ethic.
Pros
Free Lunch, Free random gear, cool people
Cons
Pay, Dials

Fast Pace, Energetic, Work place - Support Lacking
Inside Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 17, 2016
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.
Pros
Free lunches and social events, Great culture
Cons
Work life expectations far exceed compensation, Development lags behind responsibilities and poor processes add to this dillema

It has a gym
Returns Specialist (Current Employee) –  Piscataway, NJJuly 14, 2016
My job is an easy job with some challenges. I have learned a lot from my fellow co-workers, whom are also great people to work with. Unfortunately, the management needs improving, and re-evaluation as well. The hardest part of my job is explaining policies within our department, then ending with miscommunication between other departments due to lack of training. Over all, this is not a bad company and there is space to grow.
Pros
Free gym in the company, discounts to many other companies, company parties, employee appreciation.
Cons
Lack of training, and lack of professionalism within the work environment.

Young company culture
Inside Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 7, 2016
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.
Pros
Free lunches, 16 PTO days
Cons
Low base, Constant cold calling

Lead Configuration Technician/Server Specialist (Current Employee) –  Piscataway, NJMay 1, 2016
Software House International(SHI) is a rising, independent company that continues to grow. There's lots of opportunity to grow within the company, and several positions ranging from the technical to sales. There's great benefits and bonuses that can be obtained, and a very balanced work environment overall.
Pros
a very nice facility with people that make you feel comfortable
Cons
closing during bad weather conditions are limited

Inside Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 28, 2016
As a rep you are required to make 50 dials a day to accounts to earn business.

What you put into the job is what you get out of it and the compensation is worth it.
Pros
Free lunches

Cubicle Cold Calls
Inside Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 22, 2016
If you work well in a confined space with a set goal then this may be a good position for you, but I was not cut out for this life. Lots of micromanaging and a minimum of 50 dials per day made this an extremely repetitive position.

Helpdesk Analyst (Current Employee) –  Somerset, NJFebruary 22, 2016
Great place to start out. Plenty of movement available within the company but hard to get past entry level. Was able to transition into roles I wanted with relative ease. Pay is not very good

Normal office job. Great job if you like being at the computer desk all day. The people are somewhat naive. The bosses can be jerks.
