    Tough but Fair Sales Job

    Pros

    This is a great company to sell for if you have the ability to make it through the first couple years. You need immediate results for what is otherwise a long sales cycle. Average tenure is about 3 years as the grind can wear you out. Lots of hurdles to convincing a business owner to come on board at a premium cost structure. If you can get a good start and constantly build a book of business the compensation can be terrific.

    Cons

    Churn and Burn the sales force. For a company that preaches and sells employee performance they are constantly looking for sales people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more patient with your sales force and utilize your current clients to help make referrals. You are leaving sales on the table by chasing off those that are doing all the right things but are unable to close deals in their first year.

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, perks are nice, and great for 6 months
    The corporate culture in TX headquarters is wonderful. Wide array of solutions that are impactful to small and midsize companies.

    Cons

    Long and Tough sale process it seems if your not benefiting from Corp leads then it's long struggle. lots of local office politics and not a fun work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time developing and encouraging good behaviors instead of rewarding tenured people with bad attitudes

    Work Life Balance is a suggestion

    Pros

    They truly believe the mission and values the company has been built upon. Leadership within the organization is encouraged and inter-company growth is highly promoted.

    Cons

    Work life balance for many is just a suggestion. The open best practice advise provided to clients is not followed internally. The highly conservative culture makes individuality difficult. To really succeed you must become Insperitized, a word used often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle-management should walk the company talk. The counsel and best practices provided to clients should be followed by Insperity management.

    Pros

    People- most of the people are great to work with and truly care about each other
    Benefits- company still manages to offer great benefits with the exception of education assistance.
    Work-life balance

    Cons

    The WORST technology EVER. Its 2014 and this company is holding on to technology built 20 years ago.
    No room for growth, one has to be part of a click to be promoted.- specific to the Atlanta office.
    Pay your people more competitively.
    Office culture-Management has a delusional idea of kindergarten like activities as fun. If the time, money, and energy used to come up with "fun in the workplace" was used to create programs to improve knowledge, pay for much needed industry training, and other programs it would truly be a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get an outside consultant to evaluate and clean up your management group in the SE region.
    Stop buying companies with great products,buy a new system....A HRIS system that integrates with all the other services or products offered.
    Integrity- tell customers exactly what they are paying for!
    Listen to your employees.
    Stop promoting incompetent people!
    Stop patching up a dinosaur of a system. We are loosing clients everyday because of technology.

    Pros

    Since I have been at Insperity, I have experienced nothing but great things from my coworkers as well as management. It is a true team-based environment and everyone helps one another. I could not ask for a better employer. Our location also provides us with a company breakfast every other week as well as weekly acknowledgments of hard work and dedication (who also get taken to lunch by the company at the end of the month). The company has been very flexible with my work schedule as well. Overall, it is a great place to work!

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load can be a bit overwhelming, but the company will do what it can to assist. Insperity brought in help from different locations to assist with our work orders to help us get back on track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to ask your subordinates what might make their jobs more efficient, which would in turn increase productivity.
