Excellent culture and great starting place to learn about technology
Inside Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONMay 20, 2016
Softchoice's mantra is to "Unleash the potential in people through technology." This mantra stays true as it is truly the people and culture that makes Softchoice great.
In the technology world Softchoice is a big player in Canada and a medium sized player in the U.S. with a lot of potential. If you want to learn about technology and how to manage accounts in a young, energetic environment then Softchoice is fantastic.
Pros
The people and culture, sometimes free lunches and after work activities, win vacations, free gear, etc.
Cons
It's a lot of work but totally worth it.

Executive Assistant (Contract) (Former Employee) –  173 Dufferin St TorontoMay 3, 2016
The work environment at Softchoice was amazing. Very hip vibe. Management takes care of their staff.

Monthly company wide review to all staff so everyone knows where the company is going. Bring your dog to work with you is an option that is great for those dog lovers who don't like leaving their pets at home.

Good people, relaxed atmosphere
Product Master - Data Analyst/Quality Assurance (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONJanuary 3, 2016
Softchoice thrives on getting things done differently. They have a dog friendly environment in the offices (dogs allowed), Foosball table and arcade machine in the lunchroom, casual dress code.

People get along well for this reason. The corporate environment can get a bit stressful however it is rewarding that your work contributes to the success of the company.

Great company with lots of fun perks
Facilities Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONOctober 30, 2015
As a software company they are always a step ahead of the usual office setting - this one in particular has been practicing these trends years before they became mainstream. It is a Dog friendly office, there are either ping pong table or Foosball table in the lunch room at our larger offices, annual "Launch" dinner has the entire company in one City to honor employees and let them know whats to come in the next year.
Continuous learning opportunities with courses that help you in your daily job as well as personal life - such as Emotional Intelligence, Color training, and Project Management to name a few.
The hardest part of the job is the the workload can get pretty heavy and stressful but seeing the finished product and appreciation from employees makes it worth it
Pros
Dog Friendly environment
Cons
lots of over time

Fun place to work
Territory Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, Ontario, CanadaAugust 9, 2015
The hardest part of the job were the lack of resources and failure to present the best projects to customers, the most enjoyable were the friends I met. I learned a lot in terms of managing my calendar and taking ownership of my work. Management needs to focus more on individual growth of reps and stay consistent and be a leader
Pros
personal freedom
Cons
terrible marketing initiatives

Nice on the outside rotten on the inside
Operation (Former Employee) –  TorontoNovember 14, 2014
Yes the people are great, senior leadership team is a joke. The company is tanking, and they treat anyone that's not in sales as a second class citizen almost. Having worked there for 4 years... Yes you want to go in because of the people... But even that is diminishing since they will basically hire anyone since they want to pay you 35k and expect you to work 12 hours every month and quarter end.
Pros
the people
Cons
the pay, the senior leadership team

A great company to start or grow your career!
People and Growth (Current Employee) –  TorontoApril 4, 2013
Softchoice has two distinct personalities. On one side, it's incredibly competitive, driven and innovative. There's a constant stream of training to help people succeed. It rewards strong performances and has a lot of opportunity for advancement and growth - vertically and laterally.

On the other side, Softchoice has a great, fun culture. With dogs in most offices, paid volunteer time, charity work, a strong Corp Social Responsibility policy and beer cart Fridays, there is definitely a softer side to Softchoice.

People that are successful here are able to balance both sides, recognizing that hard work and a focus on success means you get to appreciate the added perks. The company reinvests in itself and the future looks bright.
Pros
friendly, career growth, training, pay
