    I worked at Insight (More than a year)

    Pros

    Often times, I have compared Insight to Africa.
    Africa is one of the largest continents in the world. Insight is one of the largest VARs in the world
    Like Africa, Insight has vast amount of natural resources... However, Africa is filled with a vast jungle of rainforest. Lots of the paths are covered and often times, there is not an easy way to get from point A to point B....The compensation is average... The path to career growth is average...Many use Insight as a stepping stone to get into a better spot with a different company...

    Cons

    New hire sales training is a joke. The company actively recruits individuals who work for other resellers, like CDW because CDW has such a good new hire training program There is no accountability (Hi, marketing)
    Nobody uses Salesforce CRM. Everyone keeps individual spreadsheets and files of accounts...No collaboration between internal teams and channel partners... No continuity within the sales focus... I found the culture to be extremely laid back and I observed lots of apathy from within my peer group....
    THERE IS A SEVERE LACK OF LEADERSHIP HERE.... too many chiefs, not enough Indians... LOTS OF FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEMS that are preventing revenue growth

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking for sales leaders outside the organization and start promoting from within!
    Start holding employees - management and inside sales reps accountable
    Create standards and practices for the entire company. Set realistic expectations with marketing. Fix what is broken and stop filtering the cash cache towards superflous marketing campaigns.

    Pros

    You will interact with a variety of departments within the organization on a daily basis.
    You will have exposure to various hardware and software manufacturers.
    The opportunity to meet people in the same industry who can enhance your career.
    A lot of lunch and learn trainings so you can learn about different solutions.

    Cons

    Office politics made it difficult to move into new positions.
    Middle Management was too busy trying to achieve metrics and run reports.
    Many initiatives were created so that everyone could "check the box" but nothing that would actually impact productivity.
    The sales organization often had too many different goals to hit and the morale was down.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on promotions from within and activities that will result in sales.

    Pros

    Very good family work balance.

    Cons

    Unrealistic quotas. Constantly changing management. A slave to last quarters results. No long term vision from upper management

    Employee retention is key. Moral is low due to shortsighted focus on current and last quarter with no direction for the future.
