    I like it here - a lot, and the company has yet to realise its true potential, but will it still be a fun place?

    Great people to work alongside. Recruitment process focuses on personality and competency.
    Very positive remuneration incentives (in some cases).
    Best-in class products, with development at the heart.
    Expanding, dynamic business at global level.
    Flat management structure. No offices, agile workplace environment.

    Cons

    Recruitment policy does not match product ambition and corporate potential. Introspective and at times unambitious.
    Process obsessed at times.
    Management micromanage in some cases, and can be assumptive when assessing performance.
    Few significant benefits. No pension, healthcare scheme.
    No stated career development policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Mintel

    Pros

    fast pace, numerical, statistical, everybody is relaxed and treats each other like friends. You are empowered to make the work as you like

    Cons

    It is more like a classroom environment, where each person does his or her own assignments and rarely helps others. This is a self-managing team model; therefore, management does not care who you are, as long as the work is done. The distance between management and employees reduces the firm's internal coherence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers are much on an unrealistic result-orientend mood. Therefore, it is adviced that they review the work and if the work is not realistic, then dont try it at first place or leave it soon. Dont force employees to bear the pressure of your imaginations.
