    A lot of office politics at time, but there is some opportunity

    Pros

    The job has a lot of opportunity to learn when you first get into a position and they are willing to train well to get you up to speed. The company does offer basic insurance plans and a 401k. The opportunity for growth is good for starting positions. It is a growing company.

    Cons

    The environment can be very political at times with people focusing more on looking good than doing their jobs well. More managers than leaders in the company. In some positions it can feel like you are being micromanaged. The pay tends to be lower than industry average in certain positions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on getting results than trying to look good. Be a leader and your team will want to work for you as opposed to a manager who just comes in to do a job.

    Pros

    Lateral co-workers who I'm still friends with. OK for entry-level job, got exposure to industry and made some good networking connections. Bathrooms were clean. Within Jimmy John's delivery radius!

    Cons

    High-anxiety work environment: coming in everyday to see if your department has been "right-sized" and it's your turn to pack. Worked there 3 years during which time we had 3 bosses whose positions were all eliminated. Professional development & training were marketed in the offer but it never happened...silo'd teams, never figured out half the org chart. Pay was terrible and the final straw was the forced switch to high-deductible health plan. My salary was still the same but suddenly I'm paying $5k out of pocket before insurance kicks in. Performance reviews are a joke - there is a fixed amount of money for salary increases so management would "work backwards" to figure out how to distribute it...eg marked down for not handling any cross-divisional projects yet I could only ever work on projects that were assigned to me by my manager. Felt bad for sales reps who were subject to whatever ephemeral strategy was popular, usually just for a quarter or two before the winds shifted and a director got fired, then on to the new next best thing.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a course of action and stick to it. See it through to the end instead of changing horses mid-race. Better salaries would help you retain bright people and might offset the sting of the HDHP. The constant employee churn makes people who aren't getting fired nervous nevertheless and puts finding a new job high on the priority list.

    Pros

    Lots of goodies from partners, but they cut back about 80% of the free food days and such, so really, no Pros.

    Cons

    Low pay, Inexperienced managers, the same people are always recognized at events and meetings - so if you want to make it into the "in" group, follow the clique and do what they do. Especially the women, extremely cliquey and do not let outsiders in to be friends not matter how hard you try.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that are qualified and actually care about their employees. Also, pay higher, expecting someone to do a job for 40K a year that they should be making 55K a year isn't that much more and offensive to offer less.

    Pros

    If you are getting your feet wet in the IT industry for network, sysadmin, etc, this will be a good first place out of college, military, etc. You would be exposed to a lot and get to feel out some technologies, and see a corporate environment with not many expectations on prior work experience. Your lateral coworkers will be cool folks to work with.

    Cons

    The management is terrible and has no idea where they are headed all the way up. Google their continued history of high turnover and layoffs. Google the exec's history with prior companies also nose-diving. Even the benefits you get you will not be allowed to exercise. Great place for entry experience, then get out.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity for sales at Insight. They also have a fun atmosphere Impressive relationships with customer base and impressive ability to extract funding & marketing dollars from partners.

    Cons

    Incredibly stingy in regards to commission, base salary, and benefits. Extremely disorganized with a lack of basic processes or much of a set career path. Very outdated systems (particularly CRM system) and billing methods requiring sales people to spend insane amounts of time on processes and administrative work instead of prospecting, cross selling and taking a consultative sales approach. Extremely corporate & poltiical at times. Company schedules lots of partner trainings and activities that take away sales reps time to sell (Insight charges partners for these trainings so they are profiting immensely just at the expense of their employes time).

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time getting feedback from reps and their day to day activity if you actually want to learn what would help them improve their numbers and mandate less call blitz and calling on unqualified marketing generated leads that result in few true qualified opportunities. PAY BETTER and you will attract more qualified candidates and reduce turn over. Employee morale will go up and reps will be more productive on the sales floor. Invest in your CRM system if you truly value it and require reps to use it often! Promote VPN access and working remotely.
