okay
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 August 2018
Decent place to work, but constantly worried for job security. No work balance, make you work absurd hours with no compensation. Even on holidays and arent happy to let you take time off.

More Work than it's worth
Senior Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 April 2018
Typical day at the office involves starting to make dials to existing and potential clients at 8 am. You are expected to make roughly 50-150 calls per day, send out quotes, check order statuses, and follow up with distribution should any issues arise.

Essentially, you are running your own business for the company with minimal support. It was incredibly stressful and more work and effort than the minimal salary was worth.

Great company culture and people, but underpaid
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 October 2018
Softchoice is a great company to start at for your career in IT. You get to learn so much about the industry and meet with various vendors and partners, however the one complaint you'll hear from any rep is that they're underpaid and overworked.

Recommend to start your career here and then branch off to a more lucrative position at a vendor.
Pros
Occasional free lunches, great office culture and co-workers
Cons
Low wages compared to industry

Excellent Company
Helpdesk Technical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON26 January 2018
Softchoice is a great company to work for from the management to the culture to the belief system.
I have learned a lot working at Softhoice and given the opportunity to take on tasks beyond my job duties.
The office is dog friendly.
The culture is diverse and awesome
The hardest part of the job is trying not to love the company. lol
Nothing is hard about my job however I encounter challenges often which makes my job an excellent learning opportunity.

Disorganized with politics
Enterprise Architect (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 November 2018
If you want to flash back to your high school years, this is the place.

Softchoice desperately wants to be a mature, well-run organization but lacks the process and discipline to do so.
Pros
Flexible work environment
Cons
Disorganization, immature organization

Great IT company
Data Governance Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 September 2018
Very relaxed and young IT company culture. Average employee age will likely be late-20's. Workplace culture is relaxed (ping pong table, foosball table, games, nap room, beer cart Fridays, etc). Culture and learning opportunities are the best parts of the job.

Fun place to work
NetApp Technical Architect (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 July 2018
I cannot say enough about the culture of this company. They are really involved with the communities and there is plenty of opportunities to really get involved. The on-boarding process for presales could be a bit smoother, but once you understand your role and talk to your colleagues, it gets easier.
Pros
Fantastic culture
Cons
Difficult on-boarding process for presales

Company on the rise but poor salary
BUYER: PURCHASING (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 September 2017
Softchoice is starting to do better than it did a couple of years ago. But their salary and wages are still the lowest in the market. Work Life balance is satisfactory but they have a great Charity Organization.

Great culture but low on salary
Ops (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 August 2017
The people and openness make the company great. The downside is the divide between Ops vs Sales and the salary range. You can bring your pets to work and work from home.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 April 2017
If you are content with coming in and just doing your job, you wont make it far and will soon dislike your job. However,Go above and beyond, develop your own brand, contribute your ideas and chances are you will get a raise and promotion very quickly.
