    I worked at Insight full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong product offering--combination of hardware, software, and services and enterprise expertise are hard to beat.

    Cons

    Leadership is not focused and doesn't have long term vision of success. Lack of empowerment. Values on paper are good but not embodied in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a long term vision of success and stick to it. Empower teammates, improve pay and benefits to attract higher caliber talent.

    Pros

    It's big and so you get some of the natural benefits of that. Onsite healthcare clinic and dining facility for example.

    Cons

    What a disappointing adventure this has been. This is one of the cheapest and greediest companies I've ever been around. They frequently block career growth outside of the company and have terrible benefits, especially for a fortune 500 company. If it weren't for the partners spending money and schmoozing reps there would be little hope or positivity.

    Pros

    Not a lot of pros with this company. There maybe opportunities for advancement and a raise, but it depends on who you know, not what you know.

    Cons

    A lot of cons, which explains the reason for such a high staff turnover. Bullying is the worst con in this organization; the problem is prevalent throughout all departments. The management are short-sighted and arrogant, from the team leaders all the way up to the senior vice-presidents.
    Customer and vendor complaints are frequent, and much of the incompetence in the company is due to poor management decisions that lead to staff lay-offs at the end of every financial quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign.

    Pros

    At Plano, TX office culture changed after Insight bought Software Spectrum. "Merit increases" were a joke. No way to move up or out from desk job.

    Pros

    The salary was very good and the company has a strong history with good upper level management

    Cons

    In my experience the company lacked vision in my particular area. The pitch during the interview was intriguing but the reality was far from the pitch. My experience with Insight was unfortunate but led to me to an excellent opportunity.
