Current Employee - Business Development Executive in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Business Development Executive in Chicago, IL

I have been working at Euromonitor full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The office location is great, and the culture is much more relaxed than many larger corporate or public employers. Compensation is not exactly competitive, but the fringe benefits are good (fresh fruit and veggies delivered every week, free healthcare for individuals, 3 weeks vacation to start.

Cons

There don't appear to be any career growth opportunities. Training is very haphazard, although they are trying to make an effort to improve this. Also, the CEO is a complete nutbag.

    Incompetent leadership, disappearing benefits, every day a new idiot in London is making it harder to do your job

    I worked at Euromonitor full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people in the Chicago office are mostly nice, intelligent, and friendly.

    Cons

    - Things like work from home were cut without explanation made work-life balance very difficult.

    - Health insurance was cut because London is cheap and doesn't want to keep pace with rising US insurance premiums. You better pray the ambulance takes you to an in-network hospital if you ever get hurt.

    - The VP of marketing is the owners wife. She works part time. She knows PR but not you know, other parts of marketing, including that part that’s kind of a big deal now—the internet.

    - I saw a lot of really smart people leave Chicago because of bad leadership from London. There's a lot of dead weight in London and Chicago is always making up for it or circumventing idiots to get things done. Promotions go to friends, not talent.

    - Sales goals were ridiculously high and we weren't given the tools to meet them. Missed our bonuses in 2011 despite 40% revenue growth in our channel.

    - Turnover is so high that managers have been asked to stop sending emails out to Chicago when people quit (and managers have been asked to write positive Glassdoor reviews to balance out all the negatives).

    - The owner is extremely rude.

    - Web filtering really makes the internet slow. Even the IT guys agree and hate it. It all comes from London. And tons of websites are blocked, even though some of them were required for me to do my job.

    - The London development team is iceberg slow.

    -The tech leadership is cowardly. They're so afraid of a bad project blowing up that they do everything in house, and they do it poorly and late. They refuse to make decisions or take responsibility for anything. Are these the the types of people that you want to work for?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Euromonitor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have a lot of flexibility in how you work, and what additional projects you take on
    Get a chance to speak at major industry conferences and travel abroad
    One of the best Office Spaces in Chicago
    Great people

    Cons

    Too much ambiguity at times makes the job challenging

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in hard core quantitative analysis. Apply the same techniques/knowledge from the Vilnius office to other projects
