    I have been working at Global Intelligence Alliance full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am reviewing the co from perspective of SAA (Strategic Analysis & Advisory team). There are 2 teams in Shanghai office (SAA team and Research Center team - each team has about 20 full time staff and around 5 to 8 interns to support teams). Been with co for over 4 years. Great culture. Great team. Great mgmt. World class clients (all top global corporations). Big and interesting projects. Co has been growing really quickly and top performers and given lots of opportunity, so can really grow and develop quickly. Really awesome co to work for. And I've made a lot of great friends in office (ppl are really friendly).

    Cons

    None really. Got to work really hard if you want to succeed in company. But top performers are well rewarded. The RC team does more simpler and maybe less interesting work (no big and complex projects like SAA), so depends what you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe advertising more to build brand further.

    Pros

    good office culture. very flat structure. payment is not very bad.

    Cons

    No data analysis/data crunch. Analysts just do desk research, translate and summarize the industry/market news. Not so challenging. Feel didn't learn much from this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Analysts crunch numbers - copyrighters write newsletters

    I worked at Global Intelligence Alliance full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. Flexibility. At GIA Shanghai office, employees enjoy a large degree of freedom in terms of time management. On top of that, people are friendly in general.
    2. Diversity. GIA recruits lots of people with different backgrounds. So it is a good chance for people whose major is not business to start his career in business field.

    Cons

    1. Lack of guidance. Most people at GIA Shanghai office are young and lack of experience to provide junior levels guidance.
    2. Office Politics. The promotion highly depends on the likeness from one or two people. The career path is not clear.
    3. Business is simple. As a market research company, the business is so simple. The nature of market research seals the future of the company. Can not be great.
    4. Management. The company only likes the submissive employees not the intelligent ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Widen the business.
