Executive Assistant to SVP, Sales (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – March 21, 2017
I was not employed long enough at Insight to make an accurate review of the company. The work/life balance was great. The hardest part of my short tenure was not having enough time with my leader to build a solid working relationship and getting laid off only 4 months after being hired.

The people were wonderful!!!There is no work/life balance. In this day and age, telecommuting should be an option available to all employees, Taller cube walls or a sound reduction insulation is needed. Too noisy!!
Insight is a wonderful company. However, it is a bit unorganized with all of their different processes.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Conway, AR – February 20, 2017
* A typical day at work consists of making 40 cold calls, getting out quotes to your customers, maintaining strong relationships with existing clients, ensuring that your up to date on all the current training's, and handling anything extra that may come up.
* Before working here I knew very little about information technology, and thanks to Insight I now have a high level knowledge of many things IT related. I have really enjoyed learning about IT, and how vital having good technology is in order to have a successful business.
* My immediate management is wonderful! She fights for her team and does everything in her power to make sure each and everyone of us is successful. The management higher than that I don't know a whole lot about. As an account manager I do not have direct contact with anyone past my immediate manager. I do feel like it is a struggle to get issues or glitches fixed in a timely manner. This may or may not be upper managements fault. Insight is a huge company so I understand that it is difficult to keep things running perfectly all the time. All in all I believe management is good.
*The workplace culture is phenomenal! One thing I really like about Insight is their "In It Together Foundation." This is a program set up for employees to be able to contribute a certain amount ($1-$20) of their paycheck, so that if tragedy strikes a teammate there are funds set back to help them through their tough time.
*The hardest part of the job is definitely the cold calling. Not because the act itself is necessarily difficult, but because it is challengingmore... to turn a cold call into new business.
*The most enjoyable part of the job is finding the perfect IT solution for my clients business, and then learning how it positively impacted their business.less
Supportive coworkers and a supportive, flexible manager who allowed me to have a flexible schedule. They didn't pay overtime, but that only meant that I usually finished my 40 hours and was home by noon on Fridays.
Good people to work with, flexible manager
Nothing that I could identify. The work didn't last so I only got one contract, but that's not necessarily their fault.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Hanover Park, IL – January 29, 2017
Working at Insight is fairly easy. A typical work day goes fairly smooth. There is the occasional argument with a co-worker just like any where else. Insight is welcoming place with great benefits and hard working people.
Senior Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – January 11, 2017
Insight was a nice company to work for providing service to Chase Bank with regard to computer break/fix, installation, relocation of Chase Bank's computer hardware and related peripheral equipment. Assignments were dispatched on a daily basis in the morning, good communication with the project and department coordinators.
Good pay, relaxed culture, great team members
Poor interdepartmental communication, large projects tended to be poorly planned.
Management is great, no complaints. Recommend anyone to work here long time. Never had any issues with the company even if I was remote. Had everything taken care of for me. Very smooth transition into the company!
