    Good place for early career experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Frost & Sullivan

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify your stars sooner and make sure they're compensated well.

    I worked at Frost & Sullivan full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Think about the long term impact of work rather than cheap, speedy output.

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

    I worked at Frost & Sullivan

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Lack 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

    I worked at Frost & Sullivan as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Interns can take responsibilities and our ideas are valued. My supervisor was very nice. She taught me a lot of things including some Excel skills. I really enjoyed the experience.

    Cons

    The working hours are long, even for interns. People only focus on work in the office and they seem to only know and talk to the people in their own team or sector. Limited communication between different teams

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

    Pros

    Some talented staff but overworked. Nice client list (until they get burnt on missing deliverables).

    Cons

    No talented staff in management. Poor salary. Understaffed. Overly sales-focused. Outdated tech infrastructure. Overworked. Low morale. Bullies. Liars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think they'd listen... But, look at the long-term instead of the short-term. I had a very disappointing experience at Frost & Sullivan. I was overworked. When I asked for help, I was told "we're all overworked" or told I might be able to get help in a year or two. The sales staff dominated the culture -- meaning products were often invented after they were sold and no thought was put into project scope, needs, ethics, or deadlines. The print and web needs were all outsourced to India, which added more layers of complexity than it solved. A high staff turnover created managers unqualified to supervise most products. Working at Frost & Sullivan was an all around demoralizing experience. Some of the higher-level management use bullying and borderline abusive tactics to keep employees in line. I just can't believe this place has the gall to call itself a growth consultancy company when it can't hold onto talent and continues to invest in outdated technology tools. Just, ugh.
