I have been working at Insight Global full-time for more than 5 years
I've been with Insight Global since 2017. In that time, I have paid witness to some very pivotal and drastic positive transformations that the company as a whole has made. If you are hired at Insight... Global today, you'll truly feel taken care of both personally and professionally. IG is a people-first company, and the purpose that they claim is to grow their people so that they can be the light for the world. But it wasn't always this way. In 2017, leadership and executives finally faced the reality that the culture was broken. The 8 core values that they claimed were simply just words on a wall. The company lacked a purpose bigger than themselves, and their own people were firing them, one after another. IG had truly lost their way. It wasn't until Bert Bean was promoted to CEO that the most significant changes were immediately implanted to make long-lasting improvements. And he did just that, leading the company culture transformation, where the company went from an attrition model of survival of the fittest, to a development model where everyone matters. That culture of development permeated into every team and corner of the company. You'll definitely feel a sense of belonging. The people at Insight Global genuinely care about one another (in and outside of the office) which has created more of a family rather than a business. I would say that if you are interested in joining Insight Global for expedited career advancements, networking, meaningful relationships, and growth it will be the best decision you'll probably ever make. The company has truly changed my life forever.
Just like anyone, I have struggled at Insight Global. I'll go into some more details, but the one bit of advice I will give to you when joining the company is to make sure that you are motivated and... fulfilled by sales. Insight Global and the Account Manager role is probably the most "noble" sales role you can have. I say that because you are selling the company's staffing services and building meaningful relationships with clients in order to stimulate and contribute to the growth of the job market. That doesn't mean that it doesn't come without it's challenges. For my first two years of account management I struggled, and I struggled real hard. I felt like I was going on an infinite number of client meetings and never seeing any return on my investment of effort. I was bending over backwards for bad business too because it was all I could get at the time. And despite all of this, I also got the feedback from my leadership that my biggest strong suit was my ability to build relationships and genuine relationships at that, and that success will come soon. Success unfortunately didn’t come soon. And I continued to struggle and was constantly finding myself below my growth line. And that feeling of being stuck and frustrated were everyday emotions. But Insight Global cared about me. They wrapped their arms around me and provided me with additional support and training. Shortly after that, I began seeing success and breaking milestones.
Advice to Management
I love that the company provides the Account Managers who are struggling with support, but I would say that the sense of urgency could improve.
