Pros

Good brand name in international market.

Cons

Boring, repetitive work, not interested in growth of individual and pay scales are ridiculously low. The leadership of EZIRS is pathetic as people with no or very less management education or experience are leading the key positions. And its more painful to see how a so called human capital consulting firm is not able to manage its own human capital. The sole objective of the promoters is to earn money and not build good company with some future vision. I don't see EZIRS existing anymore in next five years as the inflationary pressure increases leading to the increase in salary demand of employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

appreciate work and don't show favoritism and nepotism. There should be a transparent way to accessing the performance of the employees.

    Pros

    some excellent sr. consultants who provide guidance and insight
    access to a lot of research tools - great base for knowledge growth

    Cons

    especially in research promotions are pseudo-nepotistic
    no growth beyond role
    "you get used and move on"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    put some structure into your research - one person's opionion should not taken as dogma, especially when one examines track record of those that produce policies / practices / procedures.

    Pros

    Highly collaborative
    Interesting colleagues
    Flexible work environment
    International scope
    Private company
    Long-term mind-set
    Small company feel
    Encourages entrepreneurial mind-set
    Stable financially

    Cons

    Partners feel "entitled" and due to "lock-step compensation" often do not carry their weight and spend more time "looking good" than producing results.
    Unethical and dishonest leadership in the USA. Double standards on how Partners behave vs others in the organization.
    Selective enforcement depending on if you are a partner or not.
    Very weak HR policies, procedures and totally incompetent HR management.
    Clients would be shocked to know how the Firm was managed internally - full of hypocrites and unethical characters.
    Too much deadwood - the US side of the business is going nowhere.
    If you want to join, join outside the US.
