    Good Company, lots of resources - Global reach. Has the ability to be a one stop shop for all things IT

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a plan. Streamline the resources - decide if you want to be a call center or have Field representation

    Pros

    Best systems tools to support field folks

    Cons

    lots of internal politics happening inside executive level

    Advice to Management

    Get down to the field. Do not rely on middle management. Ensure your marching orders are understood, felt all the way in the grassroots. More often, your middle management filters what is happening at field level

    I have been working at Insight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, reasonably flexible with telecommuting options. Pay is reasonable, and benefits are adequate. Regular annual raises as long as the company does well.

    Cons

    Lacks a traditional health plan, so for people who have a chronic illness (or a family member with one) things can get expensive. Starts off with only 2 weeks off for a salaried employee and that's paltry. Senior management seems a bit out of touch with the front lines.
    Lack of promotional opportunities. Within finance several managers have left over the past few years and instead of promoting from within, the responsibilities for that person were simply dispersed among other managers.

    Advice to Management

    At the VP and chief level, you are missing a lot of crucial information that is clearly costing the company bundles of money and doesn't filter through your wall of directors. Get out of your offices and schedule some face time.

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

    Pros

    Good people, good systems, good support, able to work remotely for some positions, decent benefits, bring your own device policy.

    Cons

    Too much work for a forty hour week, no acknowledgment that there are too few resources for the amount of work and projects there are to do on a regular basis. Projects timelines are usually done by backing into the date that it needs to be done rather than looking at a realistic timeline.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your teammates how many hours they are working each week and realize that moving at full tilt year round burns teammates out quickly.

    Pros

    Great first line management, there are some very solid people that care about their employees.
    Lots of effort is made to keep the work day fun and friendly.

    Cons

    Poor senior management
    short term thinking
    This is a place for college grads to get their feet wet. But it would be wise to have a career plan that includes what you will do next.

    Advice to Management

    Start developing higher margin business. Look for and identify where the market is going, and try to get there sooner, rather than later.

    "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.
