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

    Pros

    Drink from the information fire hose if you want
    Build relationships with people in other Fortune 500s
    Good work life balance / flexible depending on manager
    Ability to see the landscape of current/emerging technology from a higher level than other tech companies
    The Channel experience and the product knowledge looks great on the ole' resume

    Cons

    There is room to grow your career, but much of that hinges on your managers opinion
    Compensation is far worse compared to other companies in the same space, very few raises.
    Many product focused employees end up with multiple bosses and managers making it impossible to make everyone happy, and in some instances can cost you your job

    Advice to Management

    Make the opportunity to work for a promotion worthwhile. As it stands now, most promotions would end up paying you less than if you were hired from the outside. How does that make sense at all? I and many others see this job as a stepping stone and turnover will continue to be high until the promotion culture is changed.

    Pros

    Good co-workers and vendor relationships

    Cons

    Management, Employee recognition, Pay, Benefits.. This company is not a great company to work for and I was there for about 10yrs too long to be stressed out everyday with all the micro management BS and unprofessionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to oversee management to ensure the employees are being treated professionally and fairly. This company does not value thier employees unless you are management, sr management or executives

    Pros

    Mike Guggemos. A true visionary and inspiration. Sales driven environment that wants to grow in multiple technology directions. Continuing to acquire new opportunities.

    Health and 401k benefits have a lot to be desired. With focus on sales the servicing department is sometimes undercut and set up to fail.

    I have been working at Insight full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Reasonable managers & supervisors, that encourage you to grow & stay with the company. Transfer is possible with a great performance history. Tuition reimbursement. I am able to provide for my family, reduce my debt & travel.

    Cons

    They don't provide reimbursement for completed certification training. Most IT certificate training are not provided at traditional schools. The training cost thousands of dollars. Many certs need to be recertified after two years.

    Advice to Management

    If an employee successfully attains a certificate from Comptia, Cisco, etc please reward the enhancement by at least partially reimbursing the cost of the classes. It's thousands of dollars.
