Pros

The training can be detailed, if you get hired at the right time. Beyond that there isn't much on the "good" side.

Cons

Upper management doesn't understand what is going on in their own offices. Every decision that is made negatively impacts the employees. Not a friendly environment. Upper management treats their staff poorly, and doesn't understand the needs of their staff. The main office hands down edicts that appear to be pulled out of thin air, that impact the business very negatively. I would not recommend Insight to anyone, business or employee. Update your resume if you are at Insight now.

Advice to Management

Listen to your staff.

    Pros

    At one point, it was the people and the general work environment. At this point, I'd say it's just because you should be happy to have a job in this economy.

    Cons

    Insight was once a really good place to work: energetic, motivated and filled with bright people. Executive management was always a little chaotic, but at least there was a general idea of what we were trying to accomplish. That all changed around 2002 when the core business acquired Comark and the subsequent IBM takeover was completed. I've worked in a lot of different places, and it boggles my mind how many executives are needed here to run the company into the ground. Do they REALLY need a Chief People Officer? How about ANOTHER Senior Vice President in IT? Recently they layed off approximately 240 people. I know a few of them, and NOT ONE of them was a Senior VP or higher. Amazing. Yet the stock price hits an all-time low and the core business is shrinking. Maybe it's me, but someone should be held accountable for the mess, and yet they let staff level people go when things get bad. I'd seriously reconsider working here if you don't already.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourself accountable and stop blaming your staff level employees. Rich, you've had 5+ years to make your mark and all that has happened is you've increased the debt load dramatically, shrunk the core business, and watched the stock price flounder (even before the major market drop). Not to mention morale is at an all-time low. This company needs a sweeping overhaul of upper management.

    Pros

    Insight is a leader in the IT Solutions provider market. Insight is very diverse in it's culture, applications, and processes, giving many different types of people a chance to work together to find solutions to any issue. Insight is a global company, giving employees a chance to work with people from all around the globe. This also gives employees a chance to resolve issues related to a global economy. Insight is the primary sponser of a NCAA Bowl game, the Insight Bowl. Working for Insight means you're working for a company that has a lot of recognition in the IT marketplace.

    Cons

    The IT industry is constantly changing. While there is an upside to this, it means job security can be volatile. Benefits are okay, but not great.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to obtain and consider individual's input. Many times I've seen decisions made where it doesn't seem all the right people were involved or informed of the decision making process
