Pros

I can't think of one right now.

Cons

I've seen the reviews that you can come and go as you please, which is true for sales reps, but as for the rest of us it is sometimes an option but believe me, it comes with a huge price! It’s also not something you can do as you please or by any regular schedule. It’s given as perks sometimes for a questionable job well done, but please read on. The only way up is out! There is absolutely no training offered on career advancement or common ethical business practices. Pay cuts are not unusual and employees are under so much stress that leaves for stress related illness is a regular occurrence. It’s a rare occasion that I see a smile on the face of a corporate employee, they walk through the halls barely speaking to each other given the stressful environment; it's by far the grayest place I've ever worked!

Disastrous financial practices that need to be creatively shown to clients and the pressure is on employees to continue on with the same disastrous financial practices that got this company into hot water when they had to restate earnings not that long ago. If employees don't go along with Insight's sketchy approach to working with client funds they are threatened and harassed. Their method of creating invoices to increase stock prices up is deplorable! Insight has been trying to get on the Best Companies to Work For list and it makes me greatly concerned for anybody that would consider putting the required time and energy and huge risk of changing employment, relocation, etc., to become employed with this company!

The benefits might as well not be any at all! If you pay for the 'all the bells and whistles plan' that costs a bunch to be a part of, you'll soon come to find yourself with large suprising bills for things that most insurance plans cover. They're pushing to get everyone on the high deductible plan, but that offers in essence just coverage for huge problemsome medical issues. It's not a good plan for those who would like their familes to get regular wellness checks or basic illness treatment such as those for sinus infections, allergies, asthma, or even hurt limbs, etc.

In this job market, we cannot afford to not to be extremely careful with where we invest our time and our energy! Please, do yourself quite possibly the greatest favor of your life and seek employment with a company that cares about its employees and where your good energy and longevity will be rewarded not wasted!

    Pros

    If you are a remote Services employee, and work on a dedicated contract, the company leaves you alone and lets you do what that contract requires done. They do try, somewhat, to keep that contract.

    Cons

    The company is more focused on Sales, and not so focused on Services. The few Sales people who are assigned to go out, find Services contracts for the Services people to go work, and follow through on renewing those contracts don't cover their assigned area. They stick to the one major city, and that's it. This leaves remote dedicated Services guys in a lurch when a contract ends, is not renewed due to negligence, and no new contracts within 120 miles.

    The company advertises itself as a Global company, and markets itself as such. When it comes to Services, though, EMEA and APAC are not covered. This puts the company at a disadvantage, as they are unable to get Global Services contracts with Global clients due to no FTE EMEA or APAC presence (instead they contract to a partner on a short term basis) for companies that require Global contracts. The company is unwilling to put forth the effort to expand to these areas, even after it has been raised.

    The company's senior management seems unstable. Every month, at least 2 emails, sometimes more, come out about some member of senior management leaving, being reassigned, or being replaced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are trying to expand Services share within the company, make sure you have your regions covered. If you have a rep assigned to cover 2-3 states, make sure they actually hit all the major cities in those states equally, not just the one the local office is in. Make sure that rep actually works with your existing clients proactively to secure contracts for the Services teammates assigned to that client.

    Hiring a teammate on to work onsite at a client, then when that client is lost expecting that teammate to either drive 2 hours to next closest client, relocate, or move to full time travel is not a good move. If the teammate wanted one of those options, they would have chosen them at onboard. Work with a few clients in the general area... If you have one client, chances are there are a number of prospective clients who are nearby.

    Don't advertise yourself as a Global Services company unless you are willing to put forth the effort to prove you are fully capable of delivering full global capabilities with Services offices or coverage in all major areas. If you are not willing to commit to being globally oriented, be willing to accept smaller clients until such time as you have infrastructure to commit to being globally oriented.

    If a perk or event is offered to HQ employees, offer an equivalent or replacement to your remote employees, even if they are dedicated at a client. They are as much your employee as any HQ employee.
