    Insight is getting better

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsAt 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Survival of the FIttest

    Inside Sales (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementBuild 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sales

    Sales (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

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

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

    Good company (for Phoenix) as it is one of only a handful of Fortune 500 in Phoenix

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsAbove 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

    ConsWeak 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 Senior ManagementNeed to focus on simplifying processes, employee retention,

    If you don't like the current team alignment just wait it WILL change, soon

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat teammates and solid middle management, where those on the front lines truly act as professionals and there is a strong desire to win as a team.

    ConsPractice development is fractured and confrontational to frontline teammates with some animosity between those that do and those that sell. While change is inevitable it sometimes seems that change here is done just to make a change.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Go with Flow embrace change

    Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsSolid baseline you can make a lot of money in sales but have to be willing to embrace change, you have to be willing to invest time to cross learn what services we do well and pull them into your approach t your client.
    Dont expect to have stuff handed to you you have to be the leader in your client relationship and to go to the right person in the organization to get the job done.

    You have to MAKE the work/life balance, You make the $$$ you want to make,

    ConsCons are in related to the pros, knowing whihc person to engage in tribal knowledge to get job done for client and insight.

    Advice to Senior Managementrealign the floor managers, Our sales manager are just number pushers they do not add to the sales temas for the most part. Reps do not need a floor manager to go on site with them when the floor manager doesnt even understand what the client does.
    Remove the roadblocks to the teams, we are one company. insight did not survive the .com bublle Y2K and the crash in 07/08 withut the employees standing fast with the company. we grew this together.
    Make remote systems better.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Misleading Company!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany talked a good game however once employed failed to live up to it.One they charge you 50.00 dollars every pay check for use of there truck to work for there company also you have to refill containers with your own water from home everyday.No money back for use of your water.Oh and they encourage sales but you have to police them for your commission if you get it at all.Also no one explains anything improper training and when it comes to your pay break down based on the jobs you did no ones knows nothing.They pay you what they want to pay you.This is just my experience. Basicly no pros. Morrisville NC

    ConsEverything that was said up top and more!!!!Sorry company starting with management on down.You work mon thru sat from 8 to 6 sometimes 7pm and still bring home 700.00 each pay period with no benefits or 401k nothing.SMH

    Advice to Senior ManagementClose the company down.He that cant follow cant lead!!
