An Ok company to work for, if career growth isn't an objective

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Insight for more than a year

ProsEarly 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

ConsCareer 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 Senior ManagementAlthough 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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

No career growth opportunity.

Marketing (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ (US)

I have been working at Insight full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWarm culture, always something fun going on. Bring Your Dog to Work Day, on-site health clinic, covered parking, onsite cafe, lots of free food and giveaways.

ConsSalaries are below average, there is no career path and hardly ever any promotions within ones job. Management seems supportive but never goes to bat for you. Unless you are in sales, no one really cares about you. Losing the Insight Bowl also stinks.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvde career paths for employees OTHER than in sales. Actions speak louder than words - quit telling employees about all the great opps at Insight - show them instead. Put more money into marketing, add headcount, create advertising campaigns. Compared to CDW we are booooring.

Great sales school

Adobe Sales Specialist (Former Employee)
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I worked at Insight full-time for more than a year

ProsGood training program, company appreciates hard workers and individuals with high potential. Corporate culture is great.

ConsCompensation is quite low, company likes to hire junior sales people instead of experienced sales executives as they do not want to pay high base salaries. Excessive micro-management on the sales floor.

Account Executive

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I have been working at Insight full-time for less than a year

ProsExcellent training by Montreal learning and development team. If you are willing to learn and participate you will have all the support needed. Great introduction to IT sales.

ConsQuestionable HR policies and management protocol. Objectives can at times be unrealistic and compensation minimal for efforts given. Be ready for some very long days with no overtime paid.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

several years in sales

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Insight full-time

Prosstrong position in industry, active in hiring, developing a strong cloud presence. OVerall package is good and opportunities exist for advancement if you look for them.

ConsTends to underinvest and give competitors a lead, can be shortsighted in their goals and reactionary to main partners and their needs. Still struggling for idsentity in marketplace.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more administrative assistance for sales, turn sales management into experts to be on calls with sales employees. Inside sales should be a lead generation engine

Strict environment with fun co-workers

Tempe, AZ (US)

I have been working at Insight full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNew NOC

Great opportunity to learn as an entry level job

ConsLack of advancement ladder
