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

    Pros

    If you are getting your feet wet in the IT industry for network, sysadmin, etc, this will be a good first place out of college, military, etc. You would be exposed to a lot and get to feel out some technologies, and see a corporate environment with not many expectations on prior work experience. Your lateral coworkers will be cool folks to work with.

    Cons

    The management is terrible and has no idea where they are headed all the way up. Google their continued history of high turnover and layoffs. Google the exec's history with prior companies also nose-diving. Even the benefits you get you will not be allowed to exercise. Great place for entry experience, then get out.

    Been working here 7 months and wow what an eye opener. Very siloed, "not my job" attitude from many teams.

    I have been working at Insight full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are nice.

    Cons

    lots of manual processes, IT can't get the main order entry system supported by the infrastructure it needs...appears to be a lack of expertise around the tool itself (SAP).

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and stick with it for more than a couple months. Clarify who you are to the marketplace.

    I worked at Insight full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Overall a great group of people to work with (at the contributor level). Several unique benefits (many free breakfasts if you work in the Harl office, tickets to sporting events, tchotchkes galore. Good time off once you have been there 3 years - but vacation time is use it or lose it so no carry-over and no payout when you leave.

    Cons

    You will be trapped in a cube that is as small as legally allowed. Management asks for the impossible and gives no thought into how you are expected to get it done. No career development. Minimal promotions (and those that are promoted are often done with no regard to actual skills).

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the resources that are needed to get the job done right. With all of the data issues that have plagued this company it is hard to believe that it can still do business.

    Pros

    Looks good on resume, teammates are so unqualified it is easy to look good

    Cons

    There is no way to move up in the company and no type of career path, pay is below average and if anyone gets a yearly raise it might be $.10 an hour, there is absolutely no training and all the management is completely unaware of what they are doing and are only in their jobs because they have friends in upper management. Benefits are ridiculously expensive and it's literally joked about in staff meetings how underpaid the office workers are.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring people that are actually qualified for their jobs, managers are literally hiring people that they know are unqualified and about to retire so that they know their jobs aren't at risk because they should clearly not have the position they do

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

    Pros

    Strong product offering--combination of hardware, software, and services and enterprise expertise are hard to beat.

    Cons

    Leadership is not focused and doesn't have long term vision of success. Lack of empowerment. Values on paper are good but not embodied in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Have a long term vision of success and stick to it. Empower teammates, improve pay and benefits to attract higher caliber talent.

    Pros

    It's big and so you get some of the natural benefits of that. Onsite healthcare clinic and dining facility for example.

    Cons

    What a disappointing adventure this has been. This is one of the cheapest and greediest companies I've ever been around. They frequently block career growth outside of the company and have terrible benefits, especially for a fortune 500 company. If it weren't for the partners spending money and schmoozing reps there would be little hope or positivity.

    Pros

    When you clock out, you're done and can enjoy personal life.

    Cons

    At Plano, TX office culture changed after Insight bought Software Spectrum. "Merit increases" were a joke. No way to move up or out from desk job.

    Pros

    The salary was very good and the company has a strong history with good upper level management

    Cons

    In my experience the company lacked vision in my particular area. The pitch during the interview was intriguing but the reality was far from the pitch. My experience with Insight was unfortunate but led to me to an excellent opportunity.
