    Former Employee - Associate Consultant in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Associate Consultant in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Euromonitor full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of exposure to a lot of areas in technical consulting quite quickly. Little hand holding, they expect you to think critically and quickly, but support is there when you need it.
    Staff and office is fun. Weekly happy hours, coworkers are some of the brightest and most genuine I've met. You'll be spending a lot of hours there, so its nice to like your coworkers.
    The company seemingly has a bright future, well established in its niche of quick turnaround consulting projects. Competes in a space different than the big consultants, volume focus over in-depth consultation products.

    Cons

    Projects can stack up leading to long nights/weekends which is ok but the remuneration is not there. Pay is below average for the workload, and the advancement path is murky. You'll have to be largely self motivated to get your projects done, which is odd for a for-profit corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster the new managers you have in place, they are a great bunch. Think about updating the compensation package, ie. bonuses, scheduled salary reviews, etc. As the job market opens up, it will be hard to keep top talent at current salaries.

    I worked at Euromonitor full-time

    Pros

    Euromonitor is a great place if you're curious about how things work around the world and why goods and services markets perform they way they do. You get to work with people, both internally and clients, from all over the world. The breadth of topics to which one is exposed at Euromonitor is impressive.

    Cons

    The company has grown quickly which has meant management has not always kept up with the needs of the company or its employees. Recently this seems to have improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is as important as management, if not more so.

    Diverse Consulting Environment

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Euromonitor

    Pros

    Flexible work time for freelance consulting projects. Consulting projects vary in scope and subject matter, so it is possible to gain a more diverse understanding of the business. The company also offers intermittent training modules to attend via video conferencing, although this is on your own dime.

    Cons

    Survey data can be difficult to acquire. Depending on the engagement, there are few opportunities to provide original, value-added research and results.

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities to get a wide range of experiences. There is a lot of project variety and ability to work for high profile companies and clients. The company is growing quickly and there will continue to be a lot of job opportunities tied to this growth. Coworkers are very friendly and the work environment can easily be categorized as fun.

    Cons

    There are a lot of growing pains with a company at this stage of development. Long hours are not uncommon and most consultants are stretched quite thin.

    Pros

    Great work - life balance and company values
    Great place for a late-life sales career with low stress
    Great people, smart people
    Awesome, friendly, real culture
    There is emphasis on product quality and always improving the offering
    Good benefits
    Great comfortable career...but not for pushing the comfort zone and growing

    Cons

    Not really the place for a salesman looking to blow it out of the ball park and make a ton of money and not much long term career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen. Listen to employees, listen to clients needs, listen to competitors, listen to the market place... and make decisions based on those and good internal communication b/w all departments.

    Cons

    -Everyone is caught up in the churn and there is no real self-reflection

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider sincerely investing in your human capital. Hire an outside consultancy to comprehensively review the organization, management, methodology, human capital practices, and strategic direction. I assure you that what you spend on such a review, even if it is marginally effective, will provide valuable returns. Whether you act on them or not, that is another question.
