    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 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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    I have been working at Frost & Sullivan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a good environment to learn the basics about how a market research/consulting firm works. And managers are more than happy to give you a lot of responsibilty early on if you prove yourself (and sometimes even if you don't).

    Cons

    The bottom line is all about money at this company. And when the company has a bad quarter/year, the employees suffer. Morale is generally extremely low, because you just never have a sense of how the company is doing--really--and unexpected layoffs are frequent and generally done without warning.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep good people, you need to invest in them, in terms of training and other professional development avenues (like coaching/mentoring and/or continuing education). Before coming to F&S, I was on the "management track" in my previous company. Once I got to Frost, I realized that not only was there very little room for advancement, I had no desire to manage people in that type of environment. The only reason I've stayed as long as I have, is I've been waiting for a job that's a "perfect fit" (and there's a dearth of job opportunities in San Antonio), but my patience is running very thin at this point and I'm getting closer to accepting "just something" because at least it'll be at a different organization.
