Pros

Most of the people that work there are great to work with. Job is challenging but generally enjoyable.

Cons

Under so much financial pressure right now that there have been cuts left and right. Compensation across the board has taken a big hit and there have been numerous layoffs in the last year and a half. Some management groups make decisions that are good for themselves and not necessarily good business decisions, simply because of compensation rules.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

New CEO appears to be driving the company in the right direction.

    Pros

    The pros are that you receive a paycheck even though compensation changes frequently and never in favor of the employee.

    Cons

    Management lacks direction and foresight. The competition always seems two steps ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become proactive as opposed to the usual reactive approach. Create customer incentives to entice them to look at Insight as opposed to waiting for the competition to come up with ideas that you may or may not mirror. Once you implement a new initiative give it time to work as opposed to "pulling the plug" . Treat your employees as if they are valuable or at least act like they are.

    Pros

    The people!! You will find the best people around you who are wonderfully helpful and genuine. They make going into work each day well worth it. I have formed quite a few lifetime friendships with the people I have worked with here at Insight.

    Cons

    The last two years have seen a huge downgrade in the staff with a lot of good folks who were good workers, shoved out the door in the lay-offs. Insight started to tap India for some of the work tasks. Overall they do try, but there are times when they just don't understand what you are trying to say/explain. It's frustrating. Management has taken on the stance that your working here is a privilge so any requests have to be put forward very carefully. You want to stay under the radar. It's not as good a place to work as it used to be, which is a pity. Financially I think the company can hang on through the coming years we have to get through, but it's going to take some intelligence!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay attention to more than just the bottom line. One guy was laid off and now it takes 4 people stumbling around to try to do his job. It would have been more cost effective to have kept him. Think and really look at who is doing what and how well they are getting things done.
