Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Insight full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great team environment, everyone is trying to help you
800lb gorilla status with partners and clients
Lots of fun events and happy hours
Opportunities for learning and development everywhere
Very forgiving for slow starters

Cons

Lots of kool-aid, people outside of the attitudinal norm have been cut
Some unfair metrics
Lower compensation relative to industry - making the same deal working at a competitor will get you more money
Strong get stronger mentality (goes both ways)

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees and they will take care of your shareholders. Cutting the bottom line with compensation has led to two bad quarters

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Insight full-time (More than a year)

    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.
