    I have been working at Insight full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    - 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.

    I worked at Insight full-time

    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 heard in passing. Leaders are selected based on who they are friends with - no skills required with the exception of yes men and cheerleaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You talk about accountability but it"s ok to miss commitments if you are part of the "in crowd".
    Hire and fire based on skills and hold everyone accountable.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
