    Pros

    -Great training : they hand hold you through the 3 months of paid training.
    -Great benefits
    -Good cafeteria

    Cons

    -No job security
    -People get fired left right and center because it's government sponsored as they hire a specific quota that gives them this benefit. Insight, as I am aware, only starts paying you after your 3 months of training. If you can make it...
    -Some of the people they hire really makes you question you being there
    -With such a low base salary they work you to the bone and try to find ways to take your commission/spiffs from partners

    Advice to Management

    -Respect and appreciate your employees
    -Micromanagement is not always the best policy. If people genuinely work hard get off their case.

    Pros

    If you love the stress and action this is the place. No idle time here. There is an opportunity to make an income, be wise, learn and enjoy. It's a great moment to connect with clients and create amazing relationships. Just stay positive as best you can.

    Cons

    Be smart. Internal alliances shift quickly, training can be demanding at times. Some managers are fantastic; yet some are simply questionable in character and simply are in the wrong industry and career path.

    Advice to Management

    There are plenty of smart and dedicated individuals in this company. The stress level is very high. Lighten up on the huddles. C-Level, you have some great motivators, trim out the negativity and listen to employees. You will do much better.
