I would say that they do not give you enough of a discount as an employee. The discount should be so good that you can not say no

I don't think that it is bad. Not only do you have some insights as to what the competition is doing, but you are also supporting a diverse economy where no one company or person has a monopoly on the market.
I think that companies that penalize their employees for buying outside their company have it backwards. In most cases, the employee thinks twice about buying something from the company that they work for if the choice is taken away from them. If your product is so good, let it speak for itself and win you over on its own merits.
