    I worked at Insight Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In the Canadian office once we had the right Manager it was fantastic, the culture is extremely inclusive, work hard play hard mentality, they teach you the value of not taking things personally, exceptional learning and development opportunities for your career, paid breakfast and happy hours, etc.

    Cons

    It is a very direct environment so if you don't have a thick skin or can't learn the importance of not taking things personally in a professional environment, you will find it a challenge. It's also very metrics given which is part of the industry as well but if you aren't a fast learner or very productive, you won't have as good as a time.

    I worked at Insight Global full-time

    Pros

    Conference/work trips were a ton of fun

    Cons

    Favouritism will make or break you...if you don’t have a sales manager that’ll go to bat for you or give you leads/accounts then there’s no point working there as you’ll either not succeed or be utterly stressed and worried you’ll be fired

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

    Pros

    There are so many pros to working at Insight Global. First the pay is amazing, leadership really cares about you, promotions are achievable if you work hard enough. The biggest pro about working at Insight Global is I get to spend time with some of my closest friends.

    Cons

    It is a really fast paced environment which takes getting used to, but not an issue after getting used to it.

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

    Pros

    I cannot rave enough about the company culture we have. I genuinely feel like I hit the career jackpot. Our teams are inclusive, diverse and full of intelligent, hardworking individuals. We are constantly striving to be better and improve as a team. Our culture is something I am proud to be a part of!

    Cons

    We work extremely hard and we are challenged everyday. Some may consider this a "con" to the job - but in our world, we love the hustle because we love the results!

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

    Pros

    I honestly love working for this company. I work in such a supportive environment and management truly cares about your career progression. I sit with my manager at least once a month to determine what my goals are and how I can grow further within the organization. The opportunity seems endless and everyone is willing to do what it takes to get you there. Alongside that being able to work in a collective environemt of your peers makes you want to wake up in the morning. I get excited to come into work each day, work really hard with my friends, and then continue those relationships outside the workplace.

    Cons

    There is very little I would say in regards to cons. Realisitcally the only fallback in my opinion is that we only have one Canadian office currently; however, we are going to be expanding aggressively over the next few years regardless, so that hardly seems like a hinderance.
