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

    Pros

    Exposure to new technology from vendors who use insight. Bonuses are quarterly. Lots of in company training. Vendors bring in breakfasts often.

    Cons

    Many. Leadership in the managed services division is awful from the VPs and directors. They will lie to you on hiring in and then avoid that discussion all together. In manager meetings, defending against litigation is discussed regularly. I was shocked to learn this. And now I know why. Insight does not treat their employees well and they treat those who leave even worse. Read the legal documents upon hiring. That ought to give you an idea.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the VPs and directors who don't take care of their staff or enable them to succeed.

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

    Pros

    The environment is great and people are awesome. Partners bring in free food and treats for employees every few weeks so beware of the Insight 15. :) The overall company lives by the three main values: hunger, heart, and harmony. You are also surrounded by some of the smartest and most hard working people ever. Great culture!

    Cons

    Lately, there have been some cuts to help save money. (But I guess it's better to make cuts than layoffs.) The 401k package is dreadful. The vacation package is something from the stone ages and definitely not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    The benefits need an overhaul if you want great talent sticking around for the long haul.

    Pros

    Employees are at the center of corporate decisions. Policies make sense. Employees have unlimited sick days. Friendly sales, operations, and HR teams. Very nice and clean facility with gym and onsite lunch vendors daily at Conway, AR facility. Upper management is very friendly and engaged.

    Cons

    Health benefits could be better. HSA card is provided to each employee with $500 loaded so this does help to offset some of the high health care costs.

    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.

    I worked at Insight full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
