  5.  

    Low rates of pay

    Former Employee - Associate Consultant in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Associate Consultant in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Euromonitor as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If wanting a fast turnaround, regular stream of work (typically telephone interviews, store audits) then this is a good place to work on an ad hoc basis

    Cons

    Pay scales are low - typically between 450-500£ pw. Very little information given on initial enquiry as to availability so you have to decide whether to ask more about nature / timings / remuneration or just accept the proposal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more time for lead in. More details about each project up front so people can make a quicker decision whether they can take the project on or not. Busy people need more than 3 days notice to start any project.

    I have been working at Euromonitor full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance...I think is impossible to find such life balance anywhere else in London. The leadership is good, young and ambitious. G8 environment, relaxed and really international.

    Cons

    Not sure about crumbling the mountain...although if you are good you will definitely growth within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe lower positioned managers should be more prepared regarding the territories/companies they manage.

    Former Employee - Business Development Manager in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Business Development Manager in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    9-5 working hours
    Fresh Fruit twice a week
    Relaxed management
    Relaxed working environment
    Very fun and multicultural team
    Interesting product
    Brand is well known
    Small offices where everyone knows everyone
    CSR program

    Cons

    9-5 mentality
    Blatant favoritism between certain managers and certain employees (promotions, sales territory etc...)
     Sales managers have no management experience. They are ex-sales people who hit target for 2-3 years
    Very limited benefits
    Lots of bureaucracy/slow processes for a small company (250 employees in London)
    A lot of the research is done by Graduates and is outsourced to temp researchers. If client is a specialist he will very quickly notice that
    Marketing is nonexistent - there's is a Communications department which is managed by the owner's wife (who works part time)
    Management seems to be complacent with mediocrity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of your employees are ambitious - notice them and invest in them
    Good Sales people/researchers do not make good managers and vice-versa
    Encourage workers to take pride in their work
    Hire OUTSIDE managers to bring fresh ideas in the company

    The most uninspiring place you will ever find

    Former Employee - Business Development in Farringdon, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Business Development in Farringdon, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    - You get free fruit Tuesday & Thursday
    - Office located in Farringdon
    - You learn to value your next job after Euromonitor
    - Some really smart/cool people in the junior positions - they are bound to leave though

    Cons

    Where do I begin...
    - Middle managers are under qualified, power trippin', immature and unprofessional individuals. They will fight openly with each other/ their team, backstab, shift blame and have no problems lying to upper management - and to you! They are a joke to the teams they are running.
    - There is an odd vibe in the entire building - THE most quiet sales floor you will ever find. People are demotivated and unhappy.
    - The researchers are understaffed and overburdened. The quality of the data suffers massively; it is common knowledge that numbers are very inaccurate, even though management time and time again will say; "We have nothing to apologize for". Believe me - they do!
    - Low salary and unrealistic targets. Very few people meet them, although they will of course tell you otherwise.
    - No real chance of progression - but you wouldn't want it anyway.
    - Staff turnover is through the roof. They are not hiring because they are growing, but because so many people leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some actual talent in terms of middle management instead of under qualified people who turn into tyrants in order to compensate for all the skills they are lacking. It IS a managers job to motivate - so do it!
    Bring in some incentives, atmosphere and fun and make people feel like they are actually valued.
    People are not happy in your offices - do something, or all the talent will leave.
