Not for everyone

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ (US)

I have been working at Insight full-time for more than a year

Pros- The project team I worked with was great, hard working, caring, team-oriented.
- The project team had three SAP go-lives and three migrations in a year; this no small feat, but I do not think anyone at a senior level understands this

Cons- Management behavior is bullying, micro-management, out of touch with people
- Systems/processes are out-moded
- Lack of integration of functions - never integrated from 5 acquistions
- Struggles with identity
- Cannot clearly articulate value proposition
- Makes most of its money by jacking up freight costs
- HR is old school and outmoded
- Benefits are average - emphasis is purely on cost containment
- Too top heavy
- Exec salaries are paid at ranges that a much larger company in terms of revenue, margin and employee base would pay

Advice to Senior Management- Start over!
- Sell the company!

Insight will never prosper until it uses facts and data versus good old boy network to select and retain management.

I worked at Insight full-time


Pros: Good exposure to broad portfolio of manufacturers. Cons: Workload is too much for most support staff. Management focus is typically determined by which manufacturer they had drinks with or a comment the CEO… Advice to Senior Management: You talk about accountability but it"s ok to miss commitments if you are… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

Product Management (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ (US)

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


Pros: Insight has good benefits compared to many other Arizona based… Cons: Sales management does nothing to train and force the sales… Advice to Senior Management: Develop a world class Sales team by actually teaching sales skills and getting rid of those who just take orders. Put Product Management back… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
