    I have been working at Frost & Sullivan full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The flexible work schedule at Frost & Sullivan has enabled me to finally have the work and family life balance that I have been searching for. I have found my direct manager and the executive management team to be accessible, direct, open, and honest. It is a refreshing change from some of the previous companies I have worked for.

    Cons

    There are online and in-person training classes offered; however, some of the online classes might be easier to navigate if they were conducted via in-person training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of the training courses in-person training versus online training.

    Pros

    Great place to work, friendly co-workers, managers that foster growth and lead by example. Lots of room for growth and a great environment to learn and develop skills. I have been here a little less than a year and look forward to continue growing with the company. Management is very understanding when issues arise and allow for a flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Communication can sometimes be difficult to coordinate since the company is global. Once in a while you will run into another co-worker who is rude and unpleasant to work with, but other than that not very many cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue fostering growth for employee's and rewarding those who strive to do their best work.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is a major benefit. Frost & Sullivan is a great place for personal growth and fosters a highly collaborative atmosphere with supportive team members and management. The company environment is focused on growth and thought leadership. Diversity among employees is a plus.

    Cons

    Lots of work experience is necessary. Time management system is cumbersome and time-consuming.

    I have been working at Frost & Sullivan full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The best thing about this company is the fact that my supervisor is a little flexible. If you have a doctor's appointment, or a sick family member, they'll allow you to work from home or work a flex schedule. This is a good place to gain experience. You have to start somewhere.

    Cons

    There is a huge lack of organization and respect between departments. One would easily say "too many cooks in the kitchen". Many supervisors are not experienced enough or trained in management which then causes added stress on the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get trained. Take some classes on how to get organized and work in a proactive format instead of reactive. Learn to respect the management of other department heads instead of trying to micro-manage those departments in which you can not perform their tasks.. ie If you can't do my job, you shouldn't be telling me what to do.
