Job description seemed amazing on paper... and then I got here

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

Pros--Intellectual capacity of colleagues is quite high compared to the corporate world.
--Those who track 10 newspapers a day for fun can actually do that as a part of their job here.
--You interact and deliver on content and products that are unique to most global operating companies.

Cons--If you have ever worked in the real/corporate world, this is not it. It is a shop run by academics. Smart people rarely equal smart managers.
--This firm/management/culture of this place hates change. If you are someone looking to makes this company a faster, more efficient, and streamlined operation, do not join this firm. And btw, they may talk the talk (in your interview, in the quarterly meetings, etc.), but the actual empowering of change rarely occurs.
--The cliques and gossip in this place are a major detriment to implementing real growth and success.
--There is a high bar to pass into the “trust” zone here. It can get exhausting.
--There is little-to-no way you can build a technical skillset here (turnover here is higher than it is at the Big-4… says a lot).

Advice to Senior Management--Please bring in a cadre of human capital consultants. You need need need to train your Directors on how to be leaders, and not just brilliant analysts. That means teaching them how to grow staff, grow skill sets, and push analysts to new heights.
--Set standards and have a culture of accountability. In such a small firm like this, all of this has to emanate from the TOP down.

    Great place to work if you have entrepreneurial spirit and interest in political risk/international affairs and politics

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    I worked at Eurasia Group


    Pros: Management were often at odds with each other regarding the strategic direction of the firm. While they had admirable intentions, the execution of business, operations,… Cons: Work/life balance was very good. The people are generally good people who value the sense of community within the firm. EG is small and close-knit.… Advice to Senior Management: Make sure all of management is on the same page when trying to implement… More
