    Great sales school

    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.

    Poor leadership

    Supervisor (Former Employee) Tempe, AZ (US)

    ProsThe team reporting to me did a great Job and was very hard working. The Technical team was extremely competent and was always willing to answer questions.

    ConsI was terminated from my position for “Performance” I was past 90 days and had no negative reviews or disciplinary actions. Insight does not care about it’s people that work for them and do not follow their own policy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are going to fire someone give them an opportunity to fix any issues that they may have but informing them of issues. Terminating someone with no documentation sets the company up for a discrimination law suit.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Account Executive

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

    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)

    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

    Lack of vision

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsIn 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.
