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

Pros

Lots of benefits, great teamwork, free outings, prizes. I learnt a lot about sales and technology and about attention to detail for every sale. You start off with a crap book and have to make your way to the top its dog eat dog and sales. Management knows who cares and who doesn;t, you can see who will last and who won't.

Cons

Work life balance kind of sucks, a being a newb can be very tedious calling other peoples dropped clients, and not making progress even when you try hard as ever.

Advice to Management

Be nice to your new group help them out they do want to succeed and it is hard when first starting

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

    Pros

    Good management team, Achievable targets and Australia/NZ had the ability to work that was autonomous to the ROW. No phone bashing and very strategic and intelligent selling.

    Cons

    Lack of progression opportunity. It was quite hard to earn good commission in the SMB team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture as it was in 2010/2011. I had great fun working the the Brookvale office in Sydney during my time in Australia.

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

    Pros

    Well stocked cafeteria, amazing office building. Most employees are friendly and nice.

    Cons

    Pathetic salary, expectation to work overtime without pay, aggressive micromanagement. People are fired left and right at whim, highest turnover I've seen in a company. Unless your an butt kisser, YOU WILL BE FIRED.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging your AEs so much and treat them with more respect. Remember, they are the one making money for you.
