LPN/Residential Counselor (Current Employee), Manassas, Virginia – March 2, 2013
I enjoy working with the mentally challenged residents such as cuing and redirecting residents all the time. A typical day would be me taking residents to medical appointments, dropping them off at the daycare program and going to do grocery shopping for the house.
It was my company so clearly I am bias as to its operations.
Director/CEO (Former Employee), Manchester – March 27, 2012
Pros: to be able to help disadvantaged individuals, and their familys
Cons: non receptive local authorities.
New company formed in 1997 by myself. Exciting to develop from an idea to reality. Met lots of interesting people and established good relationships with most. Learning curve to identify funding availability and limitations. Long hours and lot of worries but exciting to see it all become a reralityu.
Manger (Former Employee), Tempe, az – August 7, 2013
It was a fun place to work, but had it downfalls. We had too many CEO's and Presidents changing around. Once you got used to one way it moved. Yes, it moved my cheese. I really did like more of it then not like it.
Operations Manager/Project Manager (Current Employee), Monterey, Ca – July 10, 2013
Overall we have plenty of work for everyone and our days really are intense. We are contracted out as an onsite IT support staff for our customer at their Monterey facility. As an operations manager I have the pleasure of working with all the locations providing support for their IT needs. The most enjoyable part of the job is really the local people – more... we interact with on a daily basis. And unfortunately the hardest part of the job is dealing with a management team that do not deal with the issue's at hand or have a clear understanding of the customers needs. – less

Cons: poor leadership, horrible training, highly political
Insight could be an awesome company. Middle management carries out the message of Senior Management very well. The problem is that Senior management doesn't practice what they preach. It's extremely political and what applies to one person doesn't apply to the other.
There is a severe lack of leadership when dealing with process and procedures. No – more... one knows what the other is doing. It's no wonder they are continually losing money.
People always seem to be getting laid off because they can't pull it together and hit their numbers no matter how obscene the profit margin. On the other hand, I don't know what the retention rate is but I image it would be somewhere around 80 percent, which is dismal. – less
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Bloomingdale, IL – April 8, 2013
Pros: free food
Cons: high stress, office politics, finger-pointing, poor management, long hours
What seemed like a decent contractor role coming on to a large project soon turned out to be a daily exercise in fire fighting, with LOTS of stress / office politics / cliques and rabid personalities thrown in. The customer service team members had to figure things out on their own most of the time. Unfortunately, there were lots of things that were – more... never considered or planned out before the project got underway, and when issues became visible to the clients, the project managers would go out of their way to burn the customer service team members by writing them up. The company hinted at offering full-time employment to get more work out of the contractors, but when the project ultimately went under due to poor performance (ironic, given the number of "we're doing great" team meetings that they held), they immediately dumped everyone involved except for the office favorites. – less
Big company, but no growth potential and a lot of stress
Financial Services Representative (Current Employee), Tempe, AZ – April 3, 2013
Pros: can't think of any right now.
Cons: no growth potential and a lot of stress.
The lawsuit that was filed against them by their shareholders is linked at the bottom of their Wikipedia page says it all. Still practicing in a similar way which only causes lots of stress for employees in general and no advancement options.
