    Pros

    THERE ARE NO PROS AT ALL

    Cons

    Long hours, terrible pay, unprofessional staff, every single person is fresh out of college RED FLAG, everything the corporate recruiters tell you is a LIE. You are not being "hired into sales," you are being hired to cold call individuals that put their resumes on monster all day. You do not learn valuable skills, you do not get treated like a person, you do not get promoted within 6 months. ALL LIES. At the corporate training you get fed a bunch of lies about the potential you have to make money-ANOTHER RED FLAG. They dont "train" you they try to sell the job to you-which was so insane considering I ALREADY WORKED THERE. The attrition rate in the first year is EIGHTY PERCENT. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME. Worst experience of my entire life.

    Pros

    Challenging position so you learn to work efficiently. If you do well, you can make a lot of money

    Cons

    Well basically it's pretty bad. This is not a "5 star review", the only reason I rated it 5 stars is because when I accepted the job, I didn't see the bad reviews so I thought this company was a good. Once I was about 8 months in and truly fed up with Insight Global, I looked at the 1 star reviews figuring I couldn't be the only one and people wrote pages and pages of true bad reviews on Insight Global. A person on average quits every 1.5 weeks(we tracked it). Some of the account managers are pretty rude because they are doing so well and think they own the place but not all of them are rude. When you put in your two weeks, they let you go on the spot and I didn't get my two weeks pay, even though in the agreement that I signed said I would receive 2 weeks severance pay. They sell you on the fact that you get a 10k bump in pay after 6 months which is BS because once you turn salary you make less because you can't work overtime anymore(well you do work way over 8 hours but you just don't get paid more for it). You really do feel like a number here. The company itself makes a TON of money every single week yet we had to pay for our own Christmas and boat party. One Sales Manager in particular is bad and he makes a lot of people feel very uncomfortable, including myself. All in all, I would not make this your first choice. After this go to the lowest reviews, If you notice, a lot of the positive reviews are one to two sentences long and the lowest reviews are paragraphs long. If so many people actually raved about this company like they( college recruiters and upper management) say they do, it should show in the reviews. I really have no problem with hard work and long hours. It's how they treat people that I don't like. Health plans are pretty bad and they only match up to $250 dollars for your 401K. $250 is 2 grocery trips..
