I worked at Frost & Sullivan

Pros

Good industry content
Access to cutting edge data
Analyst seem to be knowledgeable within there industry and some are willing to work with you anytime of the day or night
If you enjoy being micro-managed, call minutes/time tracked, CRM activity tracked on a daily basis, then this is the place for you.

Cons

*Micro-managed hell
*Company cares more about how many calls you make vs. how much $$$ you bring in
*Benefits are awful
*Company will not make any investment in you until you have proven yourself.
*Salary is ridiculously low
*Quota is unobtainable unless you've been there for many years where you can make $$$ on renewals
*CRM System is a joke
*Turn-over rate for new sales people averages 6 months or less
*Not a place for a career
*Leads are few and far between
*Much of the internet is blocked including companies to research
*Equipment is old and outdated
*No laptop given
*No cell phone
*Don't let the position title fool you-It's a tele-sales job
