    Pros

    Great benefits and good work, life balance.

    If you are a female you absolutely will NOT have a salary that is as much as your male counterpart - even when you bring more experience and higher sales to the table,

    Find a way to halt the revolving door turnover in product management.

    Lots of potential, however no Sales accoutability, paying half the industry commission rate will keep them mediocre!

    Pros

    Lots of things to sell!

    Cons

    Poor work life balance, too many management changes, middle management is afraid to speak up and manage in fear of losing thier jobs. Poor at dividing territories to gain better market penetration, management will keep accounts vs doing what is best for the company. Many salary plan changes over the past 3 years which has been a continual downgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Get smart hold the AE's and Middle managment accountable for growing sales portfolio's, Many reps have accounts they do not work or call on, ie just passing electronic orders. Take away the bottom accounts from every rep, hire new reps on the commision that is already being paid out and penetrate the market.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Build 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.

    Pros

    Above 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

    Cons

    Weak 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 Management

    Need to focus on simplifying processes, employee retention,

    Pros

    Warm 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.

    Cons

    Salaries 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 Management

    Provde 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.

    Guardrail to guardrail management tendencies with sales being pulled into many different directions, management disconnected with regional teams at times, comp plan/benefits are constantly changing.
