    Pros

    Early adopters of technology
    Always looking for options to push new products and new technology to clients
    Pay package, while not the best, isn't too bad
    Value awards
    Presidents dinners
    Good engagement with technology partners
    Good support for family, though not necessarily work life

    Cons

    Career Management is almost zilch from a management point of view, unless you want to take the bull by the horns so to speak
    Very very sales driven, even non-sales departments
    Very rigid in terms of policies
    Very difficult to get through to upper management

    Advice to Management

    Although there is an open door policy in principle with top management, it is very selective, and only people who know them personally can get access.
    Top Management doesnt realise that down at the lower echelons often are the back bone of the company

    Pros

    Good training, Excellent Infrastructure and Resources, Nice Peers

    Cons

    Bad Management and Directorship. Unrealistic Targets, No buzz on the trading floor

    Advice to Management

    Don't reward over achievers by inflating their targets, as this is counter productive.

    Pros

    Atmosphere is very open and free-going. Management although maintains high metrics allows you to manage your growth of business on your own terms.

    Cons

    Recent partner changes weaken the foundation of the Account Executive Position. Focus really needs to be on the partner support that we rely on to garnish relationships with clients.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on support that can strengthen the Account Executives

    Pros

    Vendors would come and bring food and gifts, dress code was pretty relaxed for business casual

    Cons

    Only got one day of training (which was fine since I catch on quick), did not give me much to do but then would complain that they were understaffed when they could have just trained me. Pay was not worth the trip. Management would complain about high turnover, and I can see why they can't get people to stay working here.

    Advice to Management

    If you see an employee can handle more than what you give them show them the ropes, otherwise they will get bored and find a better opportunity.

    Pros

    Like others before have stated, great place to learn the ropes and begin a technical knowledge base to start a career however, I would advise against any long term career at Insight as there are better opportunities elsewhere. PTO that accrues after tenure is adequate. Coworkers are generally pleasant to be around.

    Cons

    Employees pay for their own medical, high deductible plan ($3000 out of pocket until insurance pays coverage) and is extra cost to the teammate.

    Starting pay rate and seasoned rate does not come remotely close to industry standards for RNOC management.

    For a Fortune 500 company, supplies are scarce and not readily available.

    Due to lack of competitive pay and promotion, talent retention is almost obsolete.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more and start looking at graphs and market trends less. Offer more opportunity for advancement and provide incentives that will offset the stress of working under high level contracts for enterprise sized clients.

    Not a bad place to get your technical career started.

    Pros

    I was in the NOC. Good starting place to launch a career in networking or server administration. They pay for certifications that you pass.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. PTO is hard to get approved. Poor collaboration between groups. Basically zero room for growth/promotion. They would bring in less experienced people to higher for positions on the engineering team because they could pay them less than more seasoned techs with experience. Managed services is having major changes, several layoffs and management shakeups.

    Advice to Management

    When you say you promote from within stop hiring external people.

    Pros

    The job has a lot of opportunity to learn when you first get into a position and they are willing to train well to get you up to speed. The company does offer basic insurance plans and a 401k. The opportunity for growth is good for starting positions. It is a growing company.

    Cons

    The environment can be very political at times with people focusing more on looking good than doing their jobs well. More managers than leaders in the company. In some positions it can feel like you are being micromanaged. The pay tends to be lower than industry average in certain positions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on getting results than trying to look good. Be a leader and your team will want to work for you as opposed to a manager who just comes in to do a job.

    Pros

    Central location in Dallas is close to major highways, some work from home flexibility, nice PTO structure, some nice coworkers, community involvement.

    Cons

    Lot of turnover, poor training, systems and back office issues, lack of career path, constantly changing and complicated bonus structure.

    Advice to Management

    Too many silos and systems issues. Need career path to retain and award hard working, experienced employees.
