Approves of CEO

I worked at Insight (More than a year)

Pros

Early adopters of technology
Always looking for options to push new products and new technology to clients
Pay package, while not the best, isn't too bad
Value awards
Presidents dinners
Good engagement with technology partners
Good support for family, though not necessarily work life

Cons

Career Management is almost zilch from a management point of view, unless you want to take the bull by the horns so to speak
Very very sales driven, even non-sales departments
Very rigid in terms of policies
Very difficult to get through to upper management

Advice to Management

Although there is an open door policy in principle with top management, it is very selective, and only people who know them personally can get access.
Top Management doesnt realise that down at the lower echelons often are the back bone of the company

    - need to care more about internal stakeholders. the company is only as good as its people.

    I worked at Insight full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment.
    Teams are very coherent and team mates are always willing to help.
    Any position held in the organization is challenging and staff helps in the rewarding and recognition of other staff members.
    Pay is fair for fresh grads with no working experience.

    Cons

    Very limited opportunities to grow within the same department.
    Upper management are kind of isolated from the efforts being done at the operational side to get the work done.
    Some HR members don't care about the employee well being.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to understand the employee's needs financially or in terms of work/life balance. It's quite unfair that people who work so hard are underpaid and individuals who meet the political profile are promoted for their persona.
