Not for everyone

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ (US)

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 Senior Management- Start over!
- Sell the company!

Insight will never prosper until it uses facts and data versus good old boy network to select and retain management.

Pros: Good exposure to broad portfolio of manufacturers. Cons: Workload is too much for most support staff. Management focus is typically determined by which manufacturer they had drinks with or a comment the CEO… Advice to Senior Management: You talk about accountability but it"s ok to miss commitments if you are… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

No advancement opportunities

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ (US)

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


Pros: Other than the free stuff they give away there isn't… Cons: - I am severely overqualified for my position but cannot advance to a new position because I am not Mormon or an attractive female. -… Advice to Senior Management: Management needs to reassess their jobs and realize that they should clean house and get rid of the people who are in the wrong positions.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
