Good place for early career experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Frost & Sullivan

ProsGood place for early career experience but probably not great beyond 2 years. You'll learn some basics about business and market modeling which is useful.

ConsLow pay, lots of cold calling and sometimes a little shady tactics to get information.

Advice to Senior ManagementIdentify your stars sooner and make sure they're compensated well.

Executive Management Lacks Integrity & Fundamental Definition of Management

Sales Representative (Former Employee)

I worked at Frost & Sullivan full-time for more than a year

ProsIf you like the solitary confinement of a cubical and the ability to work in a pre-established role with limited support for initiative and even less willingness for change this is the place for you!

ConsI would like to believe that Frost & Sullivan North American Leadership is comprised of some good guys who have just had their balls removed but frankly, there is merit to both. One thing for sure, the tail at this company definately wags the dog!!!!

Advice to Senior Management1 - Look up the definition of integrity and see if you have it. 2 - Look up the definition of management and see if you are. 3 - Look up the definition of scared and see how well that fits. If you're still not seeing your flaws, ask someone for the unbiased opinion you desperately need.

learning lesson

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Frost & Sullivan full-time

ProsSome coworkers and a true learning experience if you end up in the "right" team and role.

ConsThe company creates a great deal of BS processes that tie up employee time and aren't productive even if there are solid intentions behind them. Good employees are often not retained, leaving for better pay and opportunities to advance. Promotions are overlooked for years and career tracks often sidelined. Comp plans given for a current calendar year typically half or 3/4 a way into the year instead of 1/1 or before then for upcoming year.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your good employees better- value them. You would get more out of your employees and keep the good ones, not just the complacent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Some benefits but generally poor communication

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Frost & Sullivan full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexibility, the ability to work remote after getting established, the pay is good for someone right out of college

ConsLack of communication and short-sightedness; some people seem to be in positions they are unable to handle while others take up their slack

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about the long term impact of work rather than cheap, speedy output.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A growing company with open culture for working but lack of communication across sectors

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Frost & Sullivan

ProsOpen culture and relatively independent space for working. Project oriented research and consulting demands high collaboration within the project team across regions.

ConsLack of communication across different sectors during my internship but it's typical of project oriented in counsulting firm, and maybe make sense but I was not much used to "island" culture

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
