    I worked at Insight

    Pros

    Central location in Dallas is close to major highways, some work from home flexibility, nice PTO structure, some nice coworkers, community involvement.

    Cons

    Lot of turnover, poor training, systems and back office issues, lack of career path, constantly changing and complicated bonus structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many silos and systems issues. Need career path to retain and award hard working, experienced employees.

    Been working here 7 months and wow what an eye opener. Very siloed, "not my job" attitude from many teams.

    Pros

    The people I work with are nice.

    Cons

    lots of manual processes, IT can't get the main order entry system supported by the infrastructure it needs...appears to be a lack of expertise around the tool itself (SAP).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and stick with it for more than a couple months. Clarify who you are to the marketplace.

    Pros

    Fine place to get your foot in the door

    Cons

    treat sales executives like children, no trust for employees, thinks having a pool table means they have company culture, stingy for a fortune 500 company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on your bonuses and spend some money on support staff, vacation, and salaries

    I worked at Insight full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - My department's management was VERY good about using time off for family related things (Doctor's appt, kid's things, etc).
    - Loved the people I worked with.

    Cons

    - Management engages in questionably un-ethical practices (out right lying to clients and potential clients)
    - Pay rate is TERRIBLE by industry standards.
    - No appreciation for the contributions of the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Pay better.
    - Take some REAL ethics training courses!

    Pros

    Free lunches are often provided by the vendors.

    Cons

    In the interview I was told I would double my base salary within a year if I hit my quota. I've exceeded my quota and will not come close to making my base salary. Unfortunately management gave false expectations to everyone on the team.

    Benefits are horrible. Healthcare is a joke.

    I would only suggest working at Insight if you've had no technical experience and can live off your base salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management....be honest and set proper expectations for your employees.
    A good manager works to solve problems with their employees. Forwarding emails to someone else (passing the buck) doesn't solve anything.
