    I have been working at CrossKnowledge full-time

    Pros

    Busy company with good insight on the digital market and innovation. Big clients Still a reference in the field... but for how long?

    Cons

    The Sales are the supreme kings/queens and only financial matters are important. So, If you are in any other team, you are less paid, respected and listened to. People with the wrong mindset (not very competent but who do a lot of self-publicity, even if it means lying and stepping over colleagues) are promoted No social benefits at all, bad private/profesional life balance, many burnouts, opaque... communication, politics at all level create a bad working atmosphere Not so innovative anymore, all the other market players have catched up and overcomed the products

    Advice to Management

    Get closer to the field people's sufferings, increase salaries, provide resting time for those who work night and day to deploy the projects, give credits to other teams instead of sales

    Pros

    Overall great company culture and lots of perks. Really great people and actually a great suite of products that you can stand behind when speaking to current and prospective clients.

    Cons

    Salary much lower than that of equivalent positions in the area. Tendency to undervalue talent and no real growth opportunities. Direction of organization often unclear.

    Advice to Management

    Show your talent that you value them by getting realistic about salaries, not treating them like their prior experience doesn't exist, and providing them with real growth opportunities. You're in the business of leadership development, but you don't actually do this for your own employees. The management committee makes too many decisions in a bubble & your roadmap suffers so you need to start engaging ALL of your... BU leaders in the process and making more data driven decisions. Don't let changes in leadership destroy the amazing culture that you have.
