    Avoid. You will be left to sink or swim and success is not aided by the compay.

    I worked at Insight full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had a few laughs with people. Made some good money before the reduced the commission plans twice.

    Cons

    Gong in circles for years. Lack of progress and vision. Huge turnover. Somedays its like a bloodbath of people being fired, replaced by new ones and only to then watching them get fired. The old timers cling on because they have accumulated a good business from the leavings of others. Low morale ad everyone constantly complaining. Have seen the commission plan reduced twice by management who cannot add value just cut costs. Bullying and incompetace is rife.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're in over you're head and its costing others. Do the decent thing and leave. Cutting costs does not equate to growth.

    I worked at Insight

    Pros

    I can't think of very many pros except for some of the people that I worked with.

    Cellphone reimbursement but my role required accessibility at all hours of the day and night which limited work/life balance.

    Cons

    I am glad that I got an opportunity to work for Insight as I have learned how NOT to run a business. The company needs to focus on a singular directions (changes are announced one day and updated the next) and seriously consider having ethics training for ALL especially the senior leadership team (I have witnessed conversations that question the humanity of leadership). Turnover is horrible and there is not much to attract the talent with compensation and benefits lacking way behind similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the exception of the CTO, I would recommend starting over with a strong ethical strategic leadership team focus on driving innovation and sales growth. Reward talent and they will make a difference.

    Been working here 7 months and wow what an eye opener. Very siloed, "not my job" attitude from many teams.

    Pros

    The people I work with are nice.

    Cons

    lots of manual processes, IT can't get the main order entry system supported by the infrastructure it needs...appears to be a lack of expertise around the tool itself (SAP).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and stick with it for more than a couple months. Clarify who you are to the marketplace.

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

    Pros

    Industry leader and expanding offerings and services capabilities provide Insight with great potential. Benefits are decent for a large corporation. They have recently added some more innovative benefits like an on-site health clinic and on-site health screenings to improve health consciousness among the teammates. They have a nice holiday party and some fun perks from the partners in the call center. Good management training programs for front line managers are provided, if you can find the time to attend. Onsite cafeteria at the Harl location, although it's overpriced and food isn't healthy or good. Free vendor food is common and better than the cafeteria food!

    Cons

    Constant change is strategy and senior leadership is often times short sighted, but in the name of growth. Constant change is particularly frustrating to the sales organization who's expectations, accounts, managers, etc are frequently changing. There is a tremendous lack of sales accountability and rigor. Sales training is poor and sales management, with some exceptions, is poor. The culture is deteriorating and morale is currently very low. Systems are very outdated, but there is a lot of work being done to improve in this area. Pay overall is below market average. Insight is trying to evolve into a modern day company, but still has a lot of school mentality which makes the shift difficult. Lots of silos and favoritism still exists. There is no empowerment and you need to go through a million approvals for the most basic and common sense things. Lots and lots of meetings. Very little respect for work/life balance or time off. You are expected to ALWAYS be accessible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop implementing so many major changes without thinking them thoroughly and getting reality checks from those on the front lines. Change is good, but constant and ongoing changes can be incredibly distracting. Create more accountability in the sales organization. Empower your managers and leaders. Being fiscally responsible is good, but you have over-pivoted at the expense of your teammates and the culture.
