IT Manager (Former Employee) Tempe, AZ

ProsAt one point, it was the people and the general work environment. At this point, I'd say it's just because you should be happy to have a job in this economy.

ConsInsight was once a really good place to work: energetic, motivated and filled with bright people. Executive management was always a little chaotic, but at least there was a general idea of what we were trying to accomplish. That all changed around 2002 when the core business acquired Comark and the subsequent IBM takeover was completed. I've worked in a lot of different places, and it boggles my mind how many executives are needed here to run the company into the ground. Do they REALLY need a Chief People Officer? How about ANOTHER Senior Vice President in IT? Recently they layed off approximately 240 people. I know a few of them, and NOT ONE of them was a Senior VP or higher. Amazing. Yet the stock price hits an all-time low and the core business is shrinking. Maybe it's me, but someone should be held accountable for the mess, and yet they let staff level people go when things get bad. I'd seriously reconsider working here if you don't already.

Advice to Senior ManagementHold yourself accountable and stop blaming your staff level employees. Rich, you've had 5+ years to make your mark and all that has happened is you've increased the debt load dramatically, shrunk the core business, and watched the stock price flounder (even before the major market drop). Not to mention morale is at an all-time low. This company needs a sweeping overhaul of upper management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Mr. Fennessy is more concerned about the stock price of the company rather than the companies true health and future.
