    the company was young and fun, but there are hardly any long-term employees

    Cons

    How ironic is it that the San Antonio, TX office of Insight Global has a website, where the banner reads, “Everyone Matters” yet the this same company will not fulfill its obligation to provide an employee with a reasonable return airfare from England? I was sent to the UK on a contract with Insight Global from San Antonio, TX, in 2017, now that the contract is ending in August, the company does not want to purchase the return airfare like they did when they sent me here. Just goes to show that it’s not the person that matters, only the money they can get out of the contract. Be very wary of the jabberwocky and Insight Global, they speak with forked tongues to deceive.

    "Read Carefully"

    5.0
    Former Employee - IT Recruiter in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Insight Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging position so you learn to work efficiently. If you do well, you can make a lot of money

    Cons

    Well basically it's pretty bad. This is not a "5 star review", the only reason I rated it 5 stars is because when I accepted the job, I didn't see the bad reviews so I thought this company was a good. Once I was about 8 months in and truly fed up with Insight Global, I looked at the 1 star reviews figuring I couldn't be the only one and people wrote pages and pages of true bad reviews on Insight Global. A person on average quits every 1.5 weeks(we tracked it). Some of the account managers are pretty rude because they are doing so well and think they own the place but not all of them are rude. When you put in your two weeks, they let you go on the spot and I didn't get my two weeks pay, even though in the agreement that I signed said I would receive 2 weeks severance pay. They sell you on the fact that you get a 10k bump in pay after 6 months which is BS because once you turn salary you make less because you can't work overtime anymore(well you do work way over 8 hours but you just don't get paid more for it). You really do feel like a number here. The company itself makes a TON of money every single week yet we had to pay for our own Christmas and boat party. One Sales Manager in particular is bad and he makes a lot of people feel very uncomfortable, including myself. All in all, I would not make this your first choice. After this go to the lowest reviews, If you notice, a lot of the positive reviews are one to two sentences long and the lowest reviews are paragraphs long. If so many people actually raved about this company like they( college recruiters and upper management) say they do, it should show in the reviews. I really have no problem with hard work and long hours. It's how they treat people that I don't like. Health plans are pretty bad and they only match up to $250 dollars for your 401K. $250 is 2 grocery trips..

    I have been working at Insight Global full-time

    Pros

    Working with Kelsey has been an absolute delight from start to finish. She has been outstanding in communication and left no questions unanswered. She was a constant support, very positive and personable. I couldn’t be any more satisfied and eager to begin my new career and I believe Kelsey has given me the right guidance and help to begin successfully.

    Cons

    She was an absolute joy, I do not have any negative feedback.
