I have been working at Insight

Pros

The people that Insight tends to attract are great individuals with a lot of entrepreneurial spirit- especially in the sales division. The working environment is interactive and there is a lot of opportunity to meet with on site manufacturers and suppliers at the head quarters office. If you enjoy collaborating on sales efforts, Insight is a good place to build on those skills.

Cons

Sr. Management is not in tune with what is going on with those closer to the clients. Several of the companies they acquired (Ex: Calence) do not appreciate the culture of Insight talent and management to the level they should for a positive teaming environment. There is a lot of Corporate politics!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give honest communications, feedback and encourage employees to grow professionally

    Pros

    Since Insight is a leader in the technology solutions industry, there are great stories almost every day of an amazing project accomplished for a customer that by itself can be extremely motivating. The diverse nature of the companies offerings make it a great place if you want to explore different types of job roles. If your interested at all in Science & Technology the learning environment can be very stimulating and rewarding. Since Insight is generally a sales oriented organization, it would be difficult to imagine succeeding or enjoying your labor here if you are a shy and reserved person. The often overlooked, "Party" atmosphere at work functions and outside of work can be a major bonus, or a curse if your the type who abuses this type of opportunity.

    Cons

    A major lacking in marketing means most people will not have heard of Insight or will completely misunderstand what they do. Being a sales oriented company makes it extremely difficult to build a solid career here without having spent at least 1 year or more in phone or field sales. Often incorrect detailed descriptions of the whole scope of a job role, or a generally misplaced effort to recruit outside the industry usually result in high-turnover for certain positions do to poor communication on the front end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exercise better communication across the different departments of the company to eliminate a "silo" structure that will delay growth of the enterprise.

    Pros

    The training can be detailed, if you get hired at the right time. Beyond that there isn't much on the "good" side.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't understand what is going on in their own offices. Every decision that is made negatively impacts the employees. Not a friendly environment. Upper management treats their staff poorly, and doesn't understand the needs of their staff. The main office hands down edicts that appear to be pulled out of thin air, that impact the business very negatively. I would not recommend Insight to anyone, business or employee. Update your resume if you are at Insight now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff.
