    Pros

    The seasoned people are the best professionals around. Lots of training to keep you up to date on the latest and greatest.

    Cons

    The recent change in management has been short of inspiring. The Management has hired most of their former employees and friends which seem to have left a negative vibration across the floor. The atmosphere is mimicking what they left which seems to be not a very encouraging one for success unless you are in the circle of management friends. Its not one size fits all. They've brought a black cloud to what was an enjoyable family unit.
    The headquarters has the best client accounts, certain managers seem to be ok if AEs only make less than 20calls per day which is unacceptable for a typical sales floor. Not a place I'd recommend professional sales people to work at. Not the best healthcare and dental package. Bonus structure changes frequently.
    This WAS a great place to thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Management should not be allowed to hire your former employees.

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

    Pros

    - Company is healthy, and is expanding by acquisition.
    - Virtual teams allows for flexibility of work hours and work from home. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    - Employee perks are shrinking, as with most public companies.
    - Brain drain, as top performers look for places they will get recognized and compensated for the value they are bringing.
    - Sales Training is non-existent or ineffective. Top performers are successful due to past experience. Average and underperformers are given no coaching or training to drive improvement.

    Advice to Management

    - The sales people need to have their sales calls shadowed on occasion to get feedback.
    - Find your top performers, and ask them what will make them want to stick around.

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

    Pros

    Mid-level and Executive Management are hands-off as long as you are performing above average. Must be self-driven and have the ability to travel and work from home. Most people in my position do not need to be micro-managed as we are all self-driven and coin-operated.

    Cons

    Compared to competition: Commission percentage is in line with competition IF you exceed quota , BUT considerably lower if you do not hit quota. Sliding payscale based on quota. Management applies annual quota increase even if you closed one time larger deals in prior year (Example: close $10M 3-Year Oracle deal in 2016, but 2017 quota is $10M++ makes no sense and is not fair)

    Advice to Management

    Need to protect top salespeople from a pay standpoint. Make sure top sales people do not leave because of competition paying more. Introduce a much larger base salary to retain top sales people.
