I have been working at Insight full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Specific roles have work from home options.

They are big on easy wins such as recurring 'take your dog to work day' and 'wear your favorite sports jersey' which helps build morale & enthusiasm for some who care about pets or sports.

Cons

Company vision and path is consistently changing, yet they never give anything enough time to work/not work. It's similar to test driving a car, only with a public company. The change results in confusion, no career opportunities (lots of promise, nothing ever on paper), inconsistent salary (especially in commission based roles), and a very strong lack of morale.

Mid level management has the ability to make/break your role and upper management fully allows this. So depending on your team, you may encounter great flexibility and trust or be micro managed.

Benefits continue to become worse. They focus on things such as a health center within your office yet medical coverage is poor and has been a deciding factor in some employees leaving the company.

Work/life balance is non-existent. You are expected to work nights/weekends on a regular basis. Everyone wants to be a team player and step up when needed, but when this becomes the expectation from management you quickly burn out. Also, you aren't ever recognized or rewarded for these efforts and are forced to prioritize yourself, often at the cost of your reputation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please focus on the people. Don't just talk, but actually follow through and listen. Yes, we all realize numbers are extremely important but without good people you don't stand a chance at making them. Don't treat people as cogs in a wheel, because they will go elsewhere with a sour taste in their mouth & do well with a competitor. This creates a downward spiral in a business where word of mouth is key.

    Pros

    Cut your teeth. Build a solid knowledge base. Practical experiences.

    Cons

    Worst compensation package in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Does excessive dialing everyday nonstop translate into quality research/relationship building. No it does not. Let me leverage a personal relationship to make a sale. Trapped literally in the strangest 125 TAM accounts. Growth; stagnant. Nice.

    I worked at Insight full-time (less than a 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
