    Pros

    Good people to work with

    Cons

    No career developement, constant restructuring and reorganization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement some sort of career development program, change is good, but too much of a good thing can be bad.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. I enjoy my coworkers.

    Cons

    Management has no clue due to promoting within the good old boys club. Poor benefits. They talk about wanting to retain employees but do the opposite through their actions.
    The "fun commitee" tries REALLY hard but has no company sponsorship and support. Unfortunately EVERYTHING is about the bottom line. They don't consider employees as an asset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have talent and experience within the company. Utilize it.
    If you'd invest in your employees it will come back to you.

    Pros

    It's big and so you get some of the natural benefits of that. Onsite healthcare clinic and dining facility for example.

    Cons

    What a disappointing adventure this has been. This is one of the cheapest and greediest companies I've ever been around. They frequently block career growth outside of the company and have terrible benefits, especially for a fortune 500 company. If it weren't for the partners spending money and schmoozing reps there would be little hope or positivity.

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

    Pros

    At HQ in Tempe, most of the teammates are very helpful. There are many fun activities.
     New PM and Marketing Management are upgrading tools so people can be more efficient.
     In those departments starting to provide more training and more career opportunities.
    Management open about goals and direction.

    Cons

    Pay scale is low and health benefits are not good.
    No on-going sales training and no accountability in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop consistent goals across organization. Each partner has goals with no tie to sales expectations.
    In PM, encourage cooperation instead of competition between teams.
    Continue to provide career training and opportunities.

    Pros

    They have good scheduling and work with you when you have family emergency. Everyone olis very helpful when you need help and they participate in volunteer work.

    Cons

    Office politics, no raises for a few years and when they did give a raise it was well below the average of other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Research into merits and pay for employees.

    Pros

    Good Entry Level with opportunity to make good money if you find the golden ticket

    Cons

    Sales process is still in building phase which can sometimes make it difficult to endure through the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build value in the employees that don't want to remain complacent instead of firing and hiring at more cost someone new to train and go through the full process all over again. Build a culture of employees that don't fear being replaced by the next new thing.

    I have been working at Insight full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Above average pay, nice friendly work environment, benefits are improving (slowly), leadership is trying to get it right, emerging cloud environment may pay dividends, management is focused on improvement

    Cons

    Weak 401(k) match - only 25% match up to 6% of pay, 2-3% merit increases isn't going to cut it, need to scale merit increases on a value based system, inconsistent work from home policies from dept. to dept., C-level executives are paid too much (like many places) and not held accountable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus on simplifying processes, employee retention,

    Pros

    Everyone seems to think grass is greener somewhere else, it's not. The job is challenging no doubt but the upside is great

    Cons

    Always changing strategy, too much. I get it thought , they are trying to innovate and move with industry. There are cons on everything if you look hard enough. Overall the company wants to do well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of ppl there for a long time not carrying weight. AE there for 15 years and never hits quota? Why are they still there?
