    Pros

    The staff are very helpful and responsive. They visit frequently to check up on your and address any issues. Pay is good.

    Cons

    Even with the visits the communication can sometimes be lacking. The process of online training and entering timesheet information can be a nightmare.

    Pros

    Choose own Hours and work pace

    Cons

    Pay is poor even as a contractor. expect same work or more as regular employees, yet NO benefitse, vacation or time off. Do not get pd. for holidays that are required to take off.

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT hire initially as contractor and expect people to work almost a year before hiring full time.

    Pros

    If you are getting your feet wet in the IT industry for network, sysadmin, etc, this will be a good first place out of college, military, etc. You would be exposed to a lot and get to feel out some technologies, and see a corporate environment with not many expectations on prior work experience. Your lateral coworkers will be cool folks to work with.

    Cons

    The management is terrible and has no idea where they are headed all the way up. Google their continued history of high turnover and layoffs. Google the exec's history with prior companies also nose-diving. Even the benefits you get you will not be allowed to exercise. Great place for entry experience, then get out.

    Pros

    Overall I enjoyed working here. Great sales environment, good training, and fun atmosphere. Enjoyed working with most of the people in my department, very open door policy.

    Cons

    Can be a high stress environment, especially if you're in the sales department
    Multiple software applications, need to consolidate applications to save time

    Advice to Management

    Invest in improving the software applications

    Pros

    Central location in Dallas is close to major highways, some work from home flexibility, nice PTO structure, some nice coworkers, community involvement.

    Cons

    Lot of turnover, poor training, systems and back office issues, lack of career path, constantly changing and complicated bonus structure.

    Advice to Management

    Too many silos and systems issues. Need career path to retain and award hard working, experienced employees.

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity for sales at Insight. They also have a fun atmosphere Impressive relationships with customer base and impressive ability to extract funding & marketing dollars from partners.

    Cons

    Incredibly stingy in regards to commission, base salary, and benefits. Extremely disorganized with a lack of basic processes or much of a set career path. Very outdated systems (particularly CRM system) and billing methods requiring sales people to spend insane amounts of time on processes and administrative work instead of prospecting, cross selling and taking a consultative sales approach. Extremely corporate & poltiical at times. Company schedules lots of partner trainings and activities that take away sales reps time to sell (Insight charges partners for these trainings so they are profiting immensely just at the expense of their employes time).

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time getting feedback from reps and their day to day activity if you actually want to learn what would help them improve their numbers and mandate less call blitz and calling on unqualified marketing generated leads that result in few true qualified opportunities. PAY BETTER and you will attract more qualified candidates and reduce turn over. Employee morale will go up and reps will be more productive on the sales floor. Invest in your CRM system if you truly value it and require reps to use it often! Promote VPN access and working remotely.
