Pros

Some good people, great opportunities if you are Mormon, I know a lot of reps that make great money, but you have to be able to survive 3-5 years of very little pay and volitile sales until you can build your book.

Cons

Terrible middle management, endless useless campaigns, metrics based on how many clients you called about the topic of the week, slow order entry terrible CRM system, true call center no freedom to visit clients and build relationships, I have witnessed Insight pull major accounts from seasoned reps for "Market Purity"

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. You claim to make attempts of this but nothing is never done.. Part of listening is TAKING ACTION. Ken is making some good changes but they have a loooooooooong way to go

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There are literally no positive aspects in working for this company short of just having a job to make your bills.

    Cons

    Terrible benefits package, 401k match is low, health care insurance costs to employee very are high. This company is just plain evil, managements compensation is based on screwing over low level employees and on their ability to send jobs to outsourcing 'partners'.

    Advice to Management

    Insight started as a call center operation to sell hard drives on a low margin. That same cheap call center mentality still drives managements attitude and incentives. The best thing management could do is jump into an icy cold lake and take a deep breath.

    Pros

    Insight is good where it is very large and easy to learn new things. Management is a little bit flexible when you need personal issues as well. Not a bad place for a JOB.

    Cons

    There is such a lack of discipline from sales reps who do not care very much. There are a lot of people as well who seem to be on "cruise control" as well where they don't make the extra effort. A lot of people are more concerned about covering their own *ss. There doesn't seem to be very much unity and being in one of the larger offices that's not HQ, it seems like there is no "love" in the different offices unless you are in HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Have management who are more competent and respond better. There are some managers who aren't even in the office who are barely working. By having more accountability and encouragement from the managers, I feel like employees would be more happy. Have managers work with team mates more to self promote and move forward and promote their careers instead of having that feeling of being stuck with no where to go.
