Sonographer

Sonographer (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

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

ProsThat I do not work there anymore. Pay was average.

Conshorrible management, you are considered a number to this company not a human. My facility was closed 2 weeks before Christmas with 2 weeks notice, benefits were awful, lots of politics, the office was very divided unfriendly co-workers and very clique-ey work environment. It was a depressing place to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a moment to get to know your employees, a smile goes a long way. Have a conversation with us once in a while instead of only meeting with us when there are issues. Communication was horrible between management and employees. I was afraid to bring up any issues because it was some how never resolved and they always looked at you different if you brought up any problems or concerns you had.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

We are great at recruitment!

Network Architect (Former Employee)
Miami, FL (US)

I worked at Insight full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLarge company, good benefits. Frequent re-organizations teaches flexibility. Always pays on time. They have a process for everything!

ConsLarge company, and you get lost in the shuffle. You are just a number to management. There is a culture of always watching behind your back, because you never know who has the next knife. The Insight values mean nothing. They are great at recruitment since they are always having to replace employees!

Advice to Senior ManagementStop the fighting between teams within the company. Cultivate the best out of people, not the people that are best at discord. Talk to those people who are leaving, there is a culture issue.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Unethical company not somewhere you want to be

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

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

ProsThere are several members of the teams that are true assets. These individuals are extremely knowledgeable; however, Insight has no respect for their employees. In fact their turnover rates and ability to cut anyone without warning is horrific.

ConsHorrible management, unethical business practices, and lack of methodology define Insight. The company tried to build on its services lines but has no care for the persons making up their workforce. There is no real career to be had here and they only use employees until they just don't need them anymore so then they quickly let them go.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe management needs to go.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Interesting but a confusing place to work.

Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Saint Paul, MN (US)

I worked at Insight full-time for more than 5 years

ProsTalented Engineers, peers mentor other staff. If you like to travel there is plenty of opportunity. Steady work with no overtime or oncall work after hours perfect for someone with a family.

ConsWorked for 6 years at Insight in St. Paul. Entire support staff of 4-6 Engineers eliminated. Found same position at another company paid $35k more a year for the same work. I should have moved on 5 years earlier. Company was profit oriented at all times and did not value their staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementEvery Engineer I speak with that were X-Insight engineers tell the same story. Never again will I work for that company at any cost. Don't see a future for Insight, anywhere. Time for Insight to go out of business, they don't bring any value to any customer. Getting rid of Senior Engineers doesn't make good business sense. What goes around comes around. Goodbye Insight, hopefully people that read this will pass on working at your company.

Proscentrally located in the metroplex

Consterrible management, no work home balance, terrible work environment

Poor leadership

Supervisor (Former Employee)
Tempe, AZ (US)

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

ProsThe team reporting to me did a great Job and was very hard working. The Technical team was extremely competent and was always willing to answer questions.

ConsI was terminated from my position for “Performance” I was past 90 days and had no negative reviews or disciplinary actions. Insight does not care about it’s people that work for them and do not follow their own policy.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are going to fire someone give them an opportunity to fix any issues that they may have but informing them of issues. Terminating someone with no documentation sets the company up for a discrimination law suit.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Should have listened to warnings

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

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

ProsTelecommute options, teammates. The "minions" try to do the best job they can and actually care.

ConsHorrendously understaffed, poor middle to upped management. They will remain understaffed until they absolutely have to hire more. They will require whomever is left to perform their duties as well as everyone else who has quit. The attitude seems to be to run people into the ground until they quit and then do the same to the next in line.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the good ole' buys group that's developed from executives bringing in their friends from former employers. It will be the downfall of the company. Allowing these people to basically BS their way to get bonuses or whatever is ridiculous. You are a publicly traded company yet if the shareholders knew how poorly things were running and maintained they would run away from the company.

awful

Teir 2-Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee)
Bloomingdale, IL (US)

I worked at Insight full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe people i was in the trenches with were the reason i stayed so long

Consevery management post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out its duties. work is accomplished by lower level employees. Lower level employees must manage upwards. lower level employees that outshine superiors are frowned upon in his establishment.

I had six bosses. Six. So that means that when I made a mistake, I had six different people coming by to tell me about it. When I started i was gung ho about using my talent and experience to help turn around a struggling department. By the time "my position was eliminated" my only real motivation was not to be hassled, that and the fear of losing my job. But you know, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired. In the end of course I was let go by people who had no idea what the words managed services mean after the company lost 3 major accounts.

Thankfully, the client I served as a team lead for and who knew my work better then my employer, had not renewed their contract and offered me a position the minute i was available. Insight is a short sighted company with a HUGE turnover rate in management. Good place holder job but dont stay long

Avoid this organization at all costs!

Inside Sales (Former Employee)
Plano, TX (US)

I worked at Insight full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIf you are fresh out of college and need industry experience, you will get good training and learn the business

ConsPoor, unprofessional management that will not support employees in fear of loosing their jobs. Extremely poor benefits package. High stress, low rewards. Constant comp plan changes (never in your favor). Unrealistic productivity expectations. No career path.

Advice to Senior ManagementStaff the business appropriately and consider the needs of the customer, Terminate all middle management and start over with professionals. Get back to the formula that made the company successfull and stop worrying only about your own multi-million dollar bonusus

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
