    I worked at AlphaSights full-time

    Pros

    This was my first job at Hong Kong, the team was brilliant and the work was fast-paced. I felt very included in the company's culture. Pay was okay.

    Cons

    The bad parts about the job was that that it is very easy to get bored there. The type of work you do is very similar, and after sometime you just become a professional networker on linkedin.

    Advice to Management

    Try to staff projects on different industries from time and time, give way for rotations. Also, please assign a mentor to every employee to see their development.

    Pros

    Strong culture, high growth potential, autonomy over work, open communication with senior leadership, transparent feedback, opportunity to make an impact

    Cons

    As a young company in high growth mode, there are a few "firsts" that you may come across. This is not a con, more of an opportunity to learn and grow with the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, continue to support employees in the efforts to grow personally and professionally during their time with AlphaSights and beyond.
