    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.

    Pros

    Insight has gone through many changes in the past 13 months. To stay relevant to clients and how partners go to market, it is important to stay nimble and relevant. There has been clear guidance and support as we have built new sales methodologies and processes to change conversations with our clients. We have many avenues to turn for support or instruction. Aside from the size, Insight continues to post quarter over quarter gains while increasing the sales force by 30 new employees a QTR. I feel that my contributions are valued and my voice is heard.

    Cons

    People unwilling to change as we grow and shift with our clients. Many of the legacy employees that have built a career on fulfillment are not as keen or open to changing direction. They need to do a better job of not letting rumors or bad attitude spread among the other employees. Insight also needs to re-evaluate the insurance carrier they use to today. Ameriben is by far one of the worst providers I have ever dealt with. Prices are ridiculous and coverage is spotty.

    Advice to Management

    Insight is building a culture of high performance. In this they need to make swift decisions on letting average or poor performance not affect those willing to contribute. When I read the posts on this board, it is evident that you have either people who were not willing to change and grow with new direction, or simply were average or below average performers. It is a shame that more people that are making great strides or money within the company are not posting reviews on Glassdoor. My guess is we are busy making money and enjoy the perks of the job. Not as much free time to bash on those around me. ( I have been with the company 10 years)

    I worked at Insight full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn the IT industry. Great lauch pad for career in the industry. Lots of opportunity for those who work hard and have passion for success. With 15 plus years of call center sales experience I would rank this one on the top. Lots of great memories. Good culture.

    Cons

    Through my time, there have seen many changes with senior leadership but par for the course in this industry. Depending on your position you could feel the heat of the latest stock market expectation but that can be part of the fun as well.

    Advice to Management

    Know your true leaders. Tap into the folks below them to determine their true effectiveness. What does X do well? What are 3 things you'd like to see X do differently?

    Pros

    Everyone seems to think grass is greener somewhere else, it's not. The job is challenging no doubt but the upside is great

    Cons

    Always changing strategy, too much. I get it thought , they are trying to innovate and move with industry. There are cons on everything if you look hard enough. Overall the company wants to do well.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of ppl there for a long time not carrying weight. AE there for 15 years and never hits quota? Why are they still there?
