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

    Pros

    Great team environment, everyone is trying to help you
    800lb gorilla status with partners and clients
    Lots of fun events and happy hours
    Opportunities for learning and development everywhere
    Very forgiving for slow starters

    Cons

    Lots of kool-aid, people outside of the attitudinal norm have been cut
    Some unfair metrics
    Lower compensation relative to industry - making the same deal working at a competitor will get you more money
    Strong get stronger mentality (goes both ways)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of your shareholders. Cutting the bottom line with compensation has led to two bad quarters

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - The project team I worked with was great, hard working, caring, team-oriented.
    - The project team had three SAP go-lives and three migrations in a year; this no small feat, but I do not think anyone at a senior level understands this

    Cons

    - Management behavior is bullying, micro-management, out of touch with people
    - Systems/processes are out-moded
    - Lack of integration of functions - never integrated from 5 acquistions
    - Struggles with identity
    - Cannot clearly articulate value proposition
    - Makes most of its money by jacking up freight costs
    - HR is old school and outmoded
    - Benefits are average - emphasis is purely on cost containment
    - Too top heavy
    - Exec salaries are paid at ranges that a much larger company in terms of revenue, margin and employee base would pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Start over!
    - Sell the company!
