    I worked at EMIS - A Euromoney Institutional Investor Company

    Pros

    Uniquely international culture
    A business with a solid reputation in its industry
    Opportunity for international travel
    A culture of promotion from within
    A number of entry level job opportunities for those interested in getiing exposure to the electornic information business

    Cons

    Probably not up to market levels in salaries in various places
    Part of a publicly traded group which can impede the company's ability to maneuver autonomously.
    Although ther is a culture of promotion from within, many position at the company are not likely to offer much career advanacement potential

    Some decent employees, but near-zero directions from Senior management

    I worked at EMIS - A Euromoney Institutional Investor Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Non-hostile environment, international peers, engaging in multiple facades of the b2b finance information sector, flexible working locations

    Cons

    This company displays some of the classic symptoms of "multi-national corporation ill-fitting syndrome."

    Incompetent senior management and mid-level managers that have little engagements with their colleagues. Unless you are in sales/client service, or hight levels of product and IT management: most entry-level jobs in product and IT are tedious and time consuming. Why so? This is due to the rigid web framework this senior management has directed to use. Most trivial data problems could be solved if developers have more room in writing their apps and tools, but for unifying the "look", they are sacrificing the usability and data search capabilities. They are wasting money on a large entry-level product team to manually maintain data quality, and it's a shame to waste all these motivated young colleagues on very meaningless jobs.

    Since the departure of the founder from the management team, the atmosphere and motivation has gone down year-by-year. You can't possibly move up from entry-level positions in this company. Most of the mid-levels and senior management members were recruited from outside teams. Though they seem to care for the product, they failed to understand its core value because they are not engaging deeply into the entire production chain. Most of the time, they could only pinpoint the trends of the industry and asked the team to "follow the trend." Such unclear direction kills motivation from product development to sales and client service.

    Another "excellent" decision from the management was to "centralize" work forces and slim down staffing in each country in order to make the company balance sheet pretty for their past financial year. Multiple countries shared one general manager- translates to: dragging decision making time on a local basis (because your manager is 6-12 hours behind on time difference) from signing client contracts to purchasing marketing materials. Without a country general manger comes horrible HR support for non-UK/non-US offices (UK/US got lucky because senior management shared their payroll with you, but not your salary). Prepare to claim your maternity benefits by yourself even when you are in the "cherished" sales/accounts department. Some countries' offices only signs staffing contract with you to avoid legal troubles, and staffing agencies they use only gives you minimum benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hired all those bright people and you drove them away one by one. Time to wake up and start from scratch. The company rated 2 stars for its overall performance- but seriously, the engaging colleagues saved a star for you.

    Pros

    Good work environment, social benefits, medical insurance, food vouchers. Great team with minor exceptions, that makes you feel at home while in the office.

    There is not much to say against this company, probably the few things that may drive one away are the constant preassure towards the people at certain positions.

    Pros

    Good pay scale with benfits. Great learning environment, you get to learn how to multitask too.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get leaves even if you have annual leaves pending. Employees lack any control and do whatever they please. There is a serious lack of transparency within senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ensure that you have greater controls over every employee.
