    I worked at Insight full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Predictable and uncomplicated job. Company pays and rewards (financially) for success. Some reasonable company benefits. Low intellect required for competence

    Cons

    Very political. Its like working for a medieval court. Only the "liked" progress irrespective of achievements and performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be scared to promote your genuine talent in front of your mates.

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

    Pros

    CEO has the long term vision to lead this company. Sales people are empowered to grow business the way they see fit. Insight is willing to try new things, attack new verticals, etc. A really good place to work.

    Cons

    Leadership can roll out new ideas without thinking them through. Many times initiatives fizzle. Lately decisions are guided by pipeline and forecast which results in an overall short-sidedness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the spreadsheets and focus on the "sales" part of sales management.

    Current Employee - Account Executive in Tempe, AZ (US)

    I have been working at Insight full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hours are the best - M-F and 8-5 with all holidays off and paid. Laid back work space, friendly people, lots of contests to win prizes and cash! On site Healthcare office with only 10.00 copay. Built in cafeteria.

    Cons

    The compensation plan stinks. Once you lose your first year of guarantee, you lose 10k of income. It is practically impossible to make that up in your commission sales - especially in year 2.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get quotas to you on time and increase compensation.

    Pros

    Good benefits, on-site clinic, several free food days and give-a-ways. Everyone is friendly, hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be promoted and the salaries are way below standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once money is out of the way, people will work harder. Also to be more involved with their employees. The mailroom knew my name and my director called me a past employee's name for a year before I left.

    Pros

    It's a good company to work for.

    not very good benefits. They will only pay for a single person's benefits but if you have a family they will make you pay full price

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much micromanagement.
