    Pros

    I've worked here for 3 years now and it's changed so much. We've gone from having very little strategy and some questionable senior team members to a really clear vision and collaborative and approachable leadership.
    As well as the usual benefits that most companies offer we can purchase holidays, get given time off for birthdays, get paid to volunteer in the community and loads more.
    They listen to feedback in the surveys we get and they actually change things to make us happy!

    Cons

    Our new building is nice but the air con is too cold!

    Empowered to make a difference. Excellent pay structure. New president EMEA is a welcomed breath of fresh air. Dress down culture.

    Pros

    Everyone seems to think grass is greener somewhere else, it's not. The job is challenging no doubt but the upside is great

    Cons

    Always changing strategy, too much. I get it thought , they are trying to innovate and move with industry. There are cons on everything if you look hard enough. Overall the company wants to do well.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of ppl there for a long time not carrying weight. AE there for 15 years and never hits quota? Why are they still there?

    Pros

    Great learning experience
    High Pressure Sales
    Recognition for success
    Tons of rewards
    Positive work environment
    Awesome benefit package

    Cons

    Internal processes can slow down performance
    Long sales training (3 months when I joined)

    Advice to Management

    The company should consider going back to its roots, which was being a sales organization geared towards providing clients a one-stop shopping experience. The burden of providing complete solutions, is profitable in theory; however, when executed in practice it doesn't work out as well. In the case of Insight, the direction of patterning with few key partners and disregard the others allowed the competition to take market share away.
