Pros

They are one of the major employers of Tempe, AZ.

Cons

It's a low margin business and therefore difficult to invest into key initiatives that will drive the company forward. Couple this with pressures from wall street to continually grow the top and bottom lines. As a result, when revenues are lacking, the only way to respond is to cut costs and people.

Advice to Management

Don't make decisions based on personal agendas. Quit playing in your turf wars and just execute on the strategy!

    Pros

    Some of the people were very professional.

    Cons

    Not a good environment for questioning the status quo. Company grew too fast in the last five years and operational processes were not reworked to keep up with the new environment. SAP upgrade turned into a nightmare that seems to not have an end in sight.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people more. Really listen, not just sling the corporate lingo about "teammate satisfaction" and the like.


  2. Insight would benefit from employee and industry "insights" as to how to turn the company around

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Insight is that the services side of the business is growing at a healthy pace and the people involved in that group are generally good to work with.

    Cons

    The culture is very non productive due to lack of empowerment for anyone under a VP level to make decisions and move the organization forward. They manage the company from the top down, however; the top executives are seemingly out of touch with the corrosive attitudes and lack of collaborative unity within the organization to solve problems.

    There is no budget for employees to connect in the industry by attending relevant industry events or training. In essence, you have to be funded by a partner in order to attend anything and there is only so much MDF to cover such expenses.

    Compensation for management positions is below market average and bonuses are very slim due to company performance.

    Advice to Management

    The painful, but obvious advice is to hire a company who excels at "change management" and empower them to implement better operational processes, integrate sales and marketing and fix the technology infrastructure issues that are crippling the company.
