    Pros

    Some good managers. Good agile working policy. Understanding of work/life balance. Business is doing well.

    Cons

    Most of the management are self-interested and not invested in developing their team. No real progression. I was told, 'we don't do pay rises'.

    I worked at Insight

    Pros

    Inspirational founder who set the business off to grow faster than competitors and instilled it with genuine values and energy. Although it was a tough ‘school’. Some great people still in place. Is quite large. Culturally confusing. Values are nice but not really changing the ground up approach.

    Cons

    Leadership has steadily deteriorated leading to the latest CEO. The leadership is largely superficial. Big on style and statements but weak on execution. Organically the business has lost market share and has to acquire in the US to keep pace. This leads to a messy and incoherent plan in the US. Europe and Asia are largely left without investment. Poor SAP system in the US and Asia. Expensive and cumbersome. EMEA installed a stop-gap system which has lasted 10 years and feels too old now.

  8. "Not that good"

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Insight

    Pros

    You get to work from home on Fridays. It is a big company and dependent on where and who you work with it could be great.

    Cons

    The company culture is not very nice in the Uxbridge office everyone seems stressed and busy, and like with anything it really depends on what team you end up on and who you work with and some of them are very badly managed. There seems to be little to no support for new starters essentially you’re given a laptop with an inbox and left to get on with it also if you are on a busy team you are expected to do overtime so I wouldn’t say you have great work/life balance either.

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

    Pros

    None that come to mind

    Cons

    Archaic customer management tools and processes. Sales management who are driven by quarterly margin performance to maintain the grace and favour of the product vendors. Lip service to the rapidly maturing digital transformation market, whilst lacking the solutions and services to truly address the needs of clients. Many long-term sales staff lack the skills to interpret the transformation aspirations of their clients, or to articulate the value of the limited cloud, automation and analytical services that Insight can deliver today. The time taken to define and enable new service offerings is unacceptable in a rapidly evolving digital market.
