    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.

    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,

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    No career growth opportunity.

    Marketing (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsWarm culture, always something fun going on. Bring Your Dog to Work Day, on-site health clinic, covered parking, onsite cafe, lots of free food and giveaways.

    ConsSalaries are below average, there is no career path and hardly ever any promotions within ones job. Management seems supportive but never goes to bat for you. Unless you are in sales, no one really cares about you. Losing the Insight Bowl also stinks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvde career paths for employees OTHER than in sales. Actions speak louder than words - quit telling employees about all the great opps at Insight - show them instead. Put more money into marketing, add headcount, create advertising campaigns. Compared to CDW we are booooring.

    Strict environment with fun co-workers

    Services Technician (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsNew NOC
    Fun co-workers
    Laid back at times
    Great opportunity to learn as an entry level job

    ConsLack of advancement ladder
    Seems every quarter a new barrier or rule is put up banning something
    Pay is on the very low end compared to other employers
    High turn-over in this department due to low pay and advancement

    Advice to Senior Managementcarve out a better advancement tier structure
    start raising salaries based on experience to match other companies
    reduce the number of work restrictions and policies. If you show you have faith in your employees and trust them to get work done, they will reward you with hard work and increased productivity

    Excited at first, too much turnover to make me feel any job security

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsSmall family like atmosphere in my department (non-sales). Co-workers at a micro level are very caring and fun to work with. On site health clinic in Tempe.

    ConsLayoffs are rampant, but they do 2 or 3 people at a time to make it less evident. However, the company continues to hire, it's a revolving door.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop overlooking your solid performers. Too much time and $ is put into the top 5% and you are losing your solid performers who have been overlooked. Show some loyalty to your solid performers and stop randomly laying off long tenured employees every time you have a lack luster quarter - we are better than that!
