    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

    The project I was on they allowed many people to have a flexible work life balance.

    Cons

    Project/Program Management Office needs to work on their Hunger, Heart and Harmony. As well as project stability. Understood that a project needs to start by storming, but there comes a time it needs to become norming (stable) and the project I was on never got to stable.

    Advice to Management

    Project Management Office needs to remember the company motto Hunger, Heart and Harmony.

    Pros

    They hire almost anyone for sales with or without sales experience. You do not need a background in computers they will teach you everything that you need to know.

    Cons

    Everyone thinks its not their job pass it to this person and it keeps getting passed and nobody does anything. They hire the good ol boys for management and if you are not part of the Good Ol Boy club you fall into the sheep category according to middle management. HR says the Good Ol Boy Club has been a problem for years and they just dont see that changing sorry. Exact words expressed to me :-)

    Advice to Management

    Hire those based on their ability to do the job. Hopefully a person with a proven sales performance within your own company. Hire someone for management that has actually done the job.

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

    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.
