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

Pros

The company has undergone an transformation as the IT Channel evolves and so far has managed to stay on the wave and not sunk. The geographical spread offers a lot of prospects to relocate and they also like to promote from within which is good for careers prospects.

Cons

Some middle managers can make the work life very difficult. The company is trying to become a solutions provider but is stuck in the box shifter mentality and this leads to internal conflict between hitting targets by just smashing out KPI's and actually doing what clients value/need/want and what actually makes profit and long term returns. Also, very process based methods for internal communications and work and can lead to long SLA's and bad internal client satisfaction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce red tape, create smaller more dynamic 'sales' teams to be more agile and customer focused.

    I worked at Insight full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of benefits, great teamwork, free outings, prizes. I learnt a lot about sales and technology and about attention to detail for every sale. You start off with a crap book and have to make your way to the top its dog eat dog and sales. Management knows who cares and who doesn;t, you can see who will last and who won't.

    Cons

    Work life balance kind of sucks, a being a newb can be very tedious calling other peoples dropped clients, and not making progress even when you try hard as ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice to your new group help them out they do want to succeed and it is hard when first starting
