I have been working at Frost & Sullivan

Pros

Ability to get good market knowledge about various topics within an industry
Nice working environment, very young and dynamic
Quickly growing markets (in Africa) with lots of opportunities for growth - and thus strong need for market research and consulting

Cons

Salary package not very competitive (no fringe benefits)
Not enough on-the-job training
Internal procedures and red tape can be burdensome

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to simplify work procedures and improve internal software/tools/materials used.
Offer better salary package (including medical aid and pension fund), similar to the industry.
