I worked at Euromonitor full-time (More than 3 years)
-Excellent amount of paid vacation
-Good % 401k employee matching after a year
-Thorough on-boarding procedure (this is not to be taken for granted)
-EMI is a stable and successful company in a secure and growing field
-Congenial atmosphere (but that can have its cons, see "cons")
-Strong bro culture, frequent casual sexism
-Bros and sexism exacerbated by "start-up" culture that encourages drinking in the office and rowdy company parties
-Hard to show restraint and not yell at bros during aforementioned forced socializing
One con of the actual work is that in research, you're forced to be very "creative" with data, which often feels unethical. Much of the work is very repetitive and tedious.
Advice to Management
Hire a more diverse staff! Consider sensitivity training!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Euromonitor in April 2017.
Ladder interview, pre-screen phone call followed by an online "skill-test". I took an online skill test and the recruiter has gotten back with me in the very timely manner, saying that the role was very "competitive" and, unfortunately, I didn't make the cut. It was super nice of them to a) not leave me hanging b) let me know asap so that I can refocus my efforts on another company.
