    Interesting work, but haphazardly managed.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOn the consulting side: creativity is encouraged, everyone's ideas are listened to on a project. Clients are often interesting, or have interesting problems that need to be solved. Lots of exposure to different industries. Travel isn't too burdensome for a NYC consulting firm.

    ConsInconsistent management, depending on which department you're working in. Directors get to play by a different set of rules when it comes to time off, working remotely, etc. Favorites get to set their own rules as well, such as getting personal phone plans paid for by the company (though the official policy forbids that). HR is essentially non-existent, so problems can't be aired with a neutral third party.

    The company pays a lot of lip service to mentoring their employees, but it doesn't pan out. Directors show little interest in taking people under their wings. You have to be very aggressive and independent to advance here.

    There is a persistent "us against them" feeling that brews at the lower levels because of double standards. In the research and knowledge divisions, management is very strict (read: chained to your desk during business hours; little flexibility).

    Doesn't live by its own advice

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsInteresting idea behind company. Interesting work and clients. Fun people to work with.

    ConsThe company doesn't live by the advice it gives to others. The CEO bought his way in and has no credibility with the staff or the industry. If this company was rated for its 'executive leadership', this company would be at the bottom of the barrel.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake yourself on as a client.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nice product, management needs improvement

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOffice, team members, good IT equipment.

    ConsVery top-heavy and does not treat employees like competent and valued adults. High-brow and condescending. Not a good life/balance.

    Great job developing reputation ratings of Fortune 500 companies. Transitioning to selling consulting services.

    Senior Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat analytical work. Was in the process of transitioning to consulting model. Entrepreneurial environment that rewarded hard work and intelligence.

    ConsSometimes limited to PR and Communications consulting when it would have been more appropriate to be working for marketing or another division. Not really the fault of the company though. Also, at the time, it was transitioning from a start-up to a more established firm. This led to some dissatisfaction with few internal processes, but also the opportunity to help craft those processes.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Decent medium-sized international firm

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsInternational, not too big, interesting service and corporate reputation model, opportunities to travel and work abroad.

    ConsManagement is not aligned which leads to "us vs. them" mentality between groups, after a few years of decent growth is getting bureaucratic and monolithic, don't always hire top talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet aligned, show your teams how to work cross-functionally. There's an obvious and unnecessary "us vs. them" mentality fostered by management, wittingly or not.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great experience at Reputation Institute

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Consno corporate culture for such a small company, it feels to corporate without actually being corporate
