I worked at Insight full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Lots of Free Training and company is willing to pay for training travel expense. Training is @ manufacturer's cost.

Cons

Uncertainty - not sure what will happened to me after a year even after 6 months. They aren't the best as far as base salary/compensation compared to the other VARs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Report to the right manager - just don't put bodies to any manager. Manager should look at the employee welfare than just the bottom line - billable hours

    I worked at Insight full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people i was in the trenches with were the reason i stayed so long

    Cons

    every management post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out its duties. work is accomplished by lower level employees. Lower level employees must manage upwards. lower level employees that outshine superiors are frowned upon in his establishment.

    I had six bosses. Six. So that means that when I made a mistake, I had six different people coming by to tell me about it. When I started i was gung ho about using my talent and experience to help turn around a struggling department. By the time "my position was eliminated" my only real motivation was not to be hassled, that and the fear of losing my job. But you know, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired. In the end of course I was let go by people who had no idea what the words managed services mean after the company lost 3 major accounts.

    Thankfully, the client I served as a team lead for and who knew my work better then my employer, had not renewed their contract and offered me a position the minute i was available. Insight is a short sighted company with a HUGE turnover rate in management. Good place holder job but dont stay long
