I have been working at Insight full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Insight has good benefits compared to many other Arizona based employers -- you can also come and go as you please.

Cons

Sales management does nothing to train and force the sales rep to actually sell--they are just order takers.

Advice to Management

Develop a world class Sales team by actually teaching sales skills and getting rid of those who just take orders. Put Product Management back to where it was --a very profitable department --and stop wasting time trying to get the large manufactures...IBM, HP, ect. more business...it won't happen unless customers call and ask for it. The old regime actually knew what they were doing...this new regime simply is rearranging deck chairs on the Queen Mary (it doesn't matter what this round of executives do, Insight is not going anywhere). I am recommending Insight to friends simply because as long as you keep your mouth shut and stay mediocre -- you may have a
well paying job for life.

    Pros

    as a sales rep you can earn 6 figures but only if you last

    Cons

    they favor a certain kind of person Rhymes with Norman.
    No salary increases, it actually decreases as your tenure grows
    commission payouts constantly change, rendering more hard work and less income. Many of the successful reps do not hit their goals because of their outrageous expectations,
    Prepare to be engulfed with unprofessional emails chains, unnecessary and redundant trainings, meaningless meetings
    micromanagement. They will time your bio - breaks and metrics are impossible.
    Few hours in the day actually spent selling
    poor culture
    no diversity
    high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Diversify. Diversify. Diversify! Stop hiring specific people irrelevant to their work history. Stop the nepotism, destroy the poor culture, listen to your reps, more indians less chiefs,
