    Pros

    If you are getting your feet wet in the IT industry for network, sysadmin, etc, this will be a good first place out of college, military, etc. You would be exposed to a lot and get to feel out some technologies, and see a corporate environment with not many expectations on prior work experience. Your lateral coworkers will be cool folks to work with.

    Cons

    The management is terrible and has no idea where they are headed all the way up. Google their continued history of high turnover and layoffs. Google the exec's history with prior companies also nose-diving. Even the benefits you get you will not be allowed to exercise. Great place for entry experience, then get out.

    Pros

    Central location in Dallas is close to major highways, some work from home flexibility, nice PTO structure, some nice coworkers, community involvement.

    Cons

    Lot of turnover, poor training, systems and back office issues, lack of career path, constantly changing and complicated bonus structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many silos and systems issues. Need career path to retain and award hard working, experienced employees.

    Pros

    Fine place to get your foot in the door

    Cons

    treat sales executives like children, no trust for employees, thinks having a pool table means they have company culture, stingy for a fortune 500 company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on your bonuses and spend some money on support staff, vacation, and salaries

    Avoid. You will be left to sink or swim and success is not aided by the compay.

    I worked at Insight full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had a few laughs with people. Made some good money before the reduced the commission plans twice.

    Cons

    Gong in circles for years. Lack of progress and vision. Huge turnover. Somedays its like a bloodbath of people being fired, replaced by new ones and only to then watching them get fired. The old timers cling on because they have accumulated a good business from the leavings of others. Low morale ad everyone constantly complaining. Have seen the commission plan reduced twice by management who cannot add value just cut costs. Bullying and incompetace is rife.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're in over you're head and its costing others. Do the decent thing and leave. Cutting costs does not equate to growth.

    I worked at Insight

    Pros

    I can't think of very many pros except for some of the people that I worked with.

    Cellphone reimbursement but my role required accessibility at all hours of the day and night which limited work/life balance.

    Cons

    I am glad that I got an opportunity to work for Insight as I have learned how NOT to run a business. The company needs to focus on a singular directions (changes are announced one day and updated the next) and seriously consider having ethics training for ALL especially the senior leadership team (I have witnessed conversations that question the humanity of leadership). Turnover is horrible and there is not much to attract the talent with compensation and benefits lacking way behind similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the exception of the CTO, I would recommend starting over with a strong ethical strategic leadership team focus on driving innovation and sales growth. Reward talent and they will make a difference.

    Been working here 7 months and wow what an eye opener. Very siloed, "not my job" attitude from many teams.

    Pros

    The people I work with are nice.

    Cons

    lots of manual processes, IT can't get the main order entry system supported by the infrastructure it needs...appears to be a lack of expertise around the tool itself (SAP).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and stick with it for more than a couple months. Clarify who you are to the marketplace.
