    I have been working at Insight full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Build a business or even an empire, with no risk. Your success is determined by your work ethic, determination and willingness to grow. If you demonstrate your commitment to the business and your clients, the sky is really the limit.

    Cons

    Only in fairy-tales, and maybe at Google is everything perfect. Your success at Insight will be limited by your individual resourcefulness, and ability to make meaningful connections with clients, partners and internal stakeholders. Do not count on good fortune or handouts to be successful, to get lasting success, you have to make it on your own and you will be all the better for doing so.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on empowering and enabling trustworthy, tried and true teammates. The only way to treat people fairly is actually to treat everyone differently. Why ? because everyone is different. Also, we can not spend enough time in the day to improve operational efficiency and effectiveness. Being better than the competition does not mean being the best we can be.

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

    Pros

    Drink from the information fire hose if you want
    Build relationships with people in other Fortune 500s
    Good work life balance / flexible depending on manager
    Ability to see the landscape of current/emerging technology from a higher level than other tech companies
    The Channel experience and the product knowledge looks great on the ole' resume

    Cons

    There is room to grow your career, but much of that hinges on your managers opinion
    Compensation is far worse compared to other companies in the same space, very few raises.
    Many product focused employees end up with multiple bosses and managers making it impossible to make everyone happy, and in some instances can cost you your job

    Advice to Management

    Make the opportunity to work for a promotion worthwhile. As it stands now, most promotions would end up paying you less than if you were hired from the outside. How does that make sense at all? I and many others see this job as a stepping stone and turnover will continue to be high until the promotion culture is changed.

    Very, very political environment. Especially in support organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it real. Keep your people humble.

    Pros

    Mike Guggemos. A true visionary and inspiration. Sales driven environment that wants to grow in multiple technology directions. Continuing to acquire new opportunities.

    Cons

    Health and 401k benefits have a lot to be desired. With focus on sales the servicing department is sometimes undercut and set up to fail.

    I have been working at Insight full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Reasonable managers & supervisors, that encourage you to grow & stay with the company. Transfer is possible with a great performance history. Tuition reimbursement. I am able to provide for my family, reduce my debt & travel.

    Cons

    They don't provide reimbursement for completed certification training. Most IT certificate training are not provided at traditional schools. The training cost thousands of dollars. Many certs need to be recertified after two years.

    Advice to Management

    If an employee successfully attains a certificate from Comptia, Cisco, etc please reward the enhancement by at least partially reimbursing the cost of the classes. It's thousands of dollars.
