    I worked at Economist Intelligence Unit full-time

    Pros

    Strong brand
    Employees are bright young things
    Free magazines

    Cons

    As knowledge is your product, tell me, where is the knowledge management?
    Teams are isolated fiefdoms at war with each other
    Some employees are worked to death, others leave at 5pm on the dot (intelligence sweatshop)
    Online portal a graveyard
    Where are the women in senior management?
    HR alternates between being aggressive and indifferent
    No opportunities for promotion available

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more women into senior management - it's not inspiring working for a company that doesn't make every effort to do this. Also why not reinvigorate the knowledge cafes or other KM initiatives to activate knowledge sharing? Someone with a global view is needed to fit some pieces of the puzzle as there's an incomplete picture at the moment.
