    Pros

    An interesting place to work. Depending upon your skills there were several opportunities to change roles.

    Cons

    The previous Sr. Management did not have a clear vision of direction nor what would provide success for the organization. Fortunately the Sr. Management has completely turned over in the past few years. According to friends that still work at the Company. Much has changed for the better. Still some challenges to overcome but the Company is on the upswing.

    Pros

    *Medical benefits
    *Fairly flexible schedule
    *Great networking opportunities
    *Free swag from partners
    *Learning how NOT to run a business
    *They'll hire anybody - seriously. My training class was bartenders, real estate guys, and retail cell phone sales people. Nobody besides me had an IT background.

    Cons

    *Piss-poor medical coverage for the price. This is more on the boneheads in DC though
    *No advancement if you aren't Mormon
    *Micromanaged, ridiculous metrics that are unattainable with the resources provided
    *Commission is TERRIBLE - they tack on so many adders you have to sell at almost no margin, and still won't beat any of your biggest competitors
    *Back-end rebates that are intended to help us drive prices down just go to line the executives' pockets
    *Hostile work environment - blatant favoritism/nepotism to the point it interferes with other folks' work, and then threats and hostile retaliation are the rewards HR whistleblowers receive
    *The line of crap they feed you in the interviews and training make it sound decent and get you excited.
    *New-hire sales trainers have never actually worked in sales, and openly admit it. Which explains why the training is so terrible.
    *Constant "trainings" and refresher courses - sometimes several in a single day, 4-5 days a week, which are just sales pitches from whichever manufacturer is in that day, not teaching anything, just pitching the product, which we're required to push on customers in return - which 99% of the time do not apply. I.e. - the requirement (in your quota now) to sell Microsoft licensing that has a minimum cutoff of 250 seats, while not one of your accounts has over 125 seats. And that's one of the less ridiculous scenarios.
    *More focused on executive bonuses, buying companies, and sending the good-ole-boy club (aka the Mormon constituency) on trips than actually providing VALUE - you know, the V part of VAR - to customers.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the BS and get up to date to be competitive. Reward hard work and knowledge.

    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 Management

    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.
