    Field Sales Representative

    Sales (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsGreat benefits, excellent compensation plan, superb infrastructure. Terrific perks and good management. Definitely a place where you would want to work.

    ConsResistant to change even if change is in their best interest. They are a VAR and VAR they will stay ... at the mercy of their vendors. They "say" they do services but it is limited to break/fix. Missing the boat on powerful revenue generating practice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to embrace services as part of their growth strategy. Because Insight is so tied to their vendors, Insight is at their mercy. Management should consider branching out in terms of service offerings so they have better margins and better control over their destiny.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Great people. Horrible management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people to work with. Management says all the right things.

    ConsManagement is so clueless and disconnected as to what is happening in the company and what needs to be done. They keep talking about fixing it to prevent the turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop taking away benefits. Start listening to your employees.

    Run!

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexibility, but not in all areas

    ConsSo many, don't know where to start. Teammates are overworked and mentally beaten up with little to no appreciation or return. Merit increases are a joke!

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at Director/VP level mgmt they manage by fear. To much politics, it's all about who you know, not what you know or the effort put in. You are losing all of your knowledgeable employees due to being pushed out by the Buddy system.

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