    "Cheap and Mediocre"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Tempe, AZ
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Tempe, AZ

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

    Pros

    People are knowledgeable, ambitious, friendly and always willing to assist. Flexible work environment. Variety of work.

    Cons

    The benefits in general are just OK. Health Benefits are poor it’s a high premium, high deductible, low coverage HSA. 401k match is low average, not what you might expect from a Fortune 500 company. Incentive programs are limited to non-existent for non-management or non-sales employees and If you're not sales, you don't get ANY of the perks.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain long-term the employees you have. Take note of how your competition treats their employees creating a sense of team for everyone, not just sales. Reduce upper management bonuses and share the success with the people that make it happen every day. It takes a team to make a touchdown not just the quarterback and the wide receiver. It’s all the little everyday perks and a feeling of inclusion that make a company great to work for.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and terrific people!

    Cons

    Base Pay is way too low!

    Advice to Management

    Increase the base pay and have experienced sales people start in SMB or corporate immediately and pay them $60K+ while they build their book. Impossible to support a family on $40K and you will continue to lose people. The atmosphere is great though so don't change the culture. Have the "just out of college" or no sales experience work SOHO.

    They pay was pretty decent and so was the laptop I received. Other than that I cant think of any other pros.

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

    Pros

    Lots of entry level openings and opportunity. Some career growth and training. Uncapped commissions.

    Cons

    Systems are horrible. Sales support is atrocious. Most non-sales people are paid near the bottom of industry average and therefore are often mediocre, apathetic, overworked, and indifferent. Reps and clients are impacted negatively by these factors daily and upper management is either unaware or complicit in this lack luster environment.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and retain the best. Quite trying to be good enough. Insight could easily come together and me a phenomenal company but you are only as strong as your weakest link and Insight has a ton of weak links.
