    Pros

    Insight has good benefits compared to many other Arizona based employers -- you can also come and go as you please.

    Cons

    Sales management does nothing to train and force the sales rep to actually sell--they are just order takers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a world class Sales team by actually teaching sales skills and getting rid of those who just take orders. Put Product Management back to where it was --a very profitable department --and stop wasting time trying to get the large manufactures...IBM, HP, ect. more business...it won't happen unless customers call and ask for it. The old regime actually knew what they were doing...this new regime simply is rearranging deck chairs on the Queen Mary (it doesn't matter what this round of executives do, Insight is not going anywhere). I am recommending Insight to friends simply because as long as you keep your mouth shut and stay mediocre -- you may have a
    well paying job for life.
