    I worked at Insight full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clear company values and communication about direction the company is taking. Great culture. Lots of free giveaways from vendors and sales contests. Sales and recognition are great.

    Cons

    As with any large company you can sometimes get lost in the mix. Such a large company it was hard to make changes to processes. Training for some positions was little to none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a clear path of advancement for those interested. Promote from within. Have management take training on how to develop their people.

    Pros

    Growing industry (IT), opportunity to develop new technical and leadership skills, Fortune 500 global company with a 25-year track record, environment is constantly changing/evolving which creates opportunities to work in different positions (you don't have to wait for someone to leave in order to have the opportunity to do something new)

    Cons

    Benefits are competitive for what the average large company is offering today; however, if you don't have $2500 in your savings account to cover your medical expenses, don't work here. It's a high deductible plan with a healthcare savings account. The entry-level sales positions are extremely challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to grow revenue and increase market share. It's hard to create a winning culture when we are constantly in cost cutting mode and unable to achieve planned results.

    Pros

    Senior leadership--pretty impressive that the CEO knows most by name
    Cafe and health center at headquarters
    Good people work here and most care
    Sales rally event is cool

    Cons

    Benefits are substandard
    Work from home policy is dept by dept-would be nice if they could extend that to all
    Sales staff not trained well
    Buildings are old and tired; cube space is a joke
    Marketing seemed in disarray until recently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work from home-the policy needs to go all the way around...not just for HR and IT
    Review benefits... They are not cutting it and you will lose out to competitors or to other local businesses

    Pros

    Insight sells for all major IT companies, many of which are in office so there are tons of contacts and opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    There is a lot of cold calling before you earn a client base so it can be pretty brutal first year or so.

    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

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Practice 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.
