Rearranging deck chairs on the Queen Mary

Product Management (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ

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

ProsInsight has good benefits compared to many other Arizona based employers -- you can also come and go as you please.

ConsSales management does nothing to train and force the sales rep to actually sell--they are just order takers.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a world class Sales team by actually teaching sales skills and getting rid of those who just take orders. Put Product Management back to where it was --a very profitable department --and stop wasting time trying to get the large manufactures...IBM, HP, ect. more business...it won't happen unless customers call and ask for it. The old regime actually knew what they were doing...this new regime simply is rearranging deck chairs on the Queen Mary (it doesn't matter what this round of executives do, Insight is not going anywhere). I am recommending Insight to friends simply because as long as you keep your mouth shut and stay mediocre -- you may have a
well paying job for life.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

An ok place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Insight

ProsMost of the people that work there are great to work with. Job is challenging but generally enjoyable.

ConsUnder so much financial pressure right now that there have been cuts left and right. Compensation across the board has taken a big hit and there have been numerous layoffs in the last year and a half. Some management groups make decisions that are good for themselves and not necessarily good business decisions, simply because of compensation rules.

Advice to Senior ManagementNew CEO appears to be driving the company in the right direction.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

What are you really signing up for

Solutions Sales (Current Employee)

I have been working at Insight

ProsThe people that Insight tends to attract are great individuals with a lot of entrepreneurial spirit- especially in the sales division. The working environment is interactive and there is a lot of opportunity to meet with on site manufacturers and suppliers at the head quarters office. If you enjoy collaborating on sales efforts, Insight is a good place to build on those skills.

ConsSr. Management is not in tune with what is going on with those closer to the clients. Several of the companies they acquired (Ex: Calence) do not appreciate the culture of Insight talent and management to the level they should for a positive teaming environment. There is a lot of Corporate politics!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementGive honest communications, feedback and encourage employees to grow professionally
