    Pros

    just a sales job nothing too special. People are nice enough but there's nothing special here.

    Cons

    Lot of talk about a culture where everyone relaxed and you can wear what you want and flex-hours but in reality if you act on any of these freedoms you wil lget snubbed.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Euromonitor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice and intelligent colleagues
    Flexibility
    Interesting projects
    Work is not too challenging once you've worked on one or two projects

    Cons

    1) Sometimes unrealistically tight deadlines
    2) Payment as country research analyst in the end of the project + 45 days, which means that you basically only get paid every third or fourth month
    3) Questionable research method. Data is often based on very rough estimates/intuition
    4) No real possibility of learning. Ok for one year, but after that it's better to try to get a new job
    5) Payment not competitive to similar jobs in the industry

    In conclusion, an ok entry level position when you're a graduate and really desperate for a job.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your payment methods
    Professionalise your product and research methods

    I worked at Euromonitor as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Flexibility
    Work from home a great plus
    Own your time
    Challenging and rewarding
    Good option if you can work but at odd hours

    Cons

    Depends on commissioner

    Actual work load (hours) is way more than they prescribe. So in case of project based payments consider their fee against multiplying the contracted time by at least 2 times.

    Takes time to receive your fee.

    Intermediary bank fee is subtracted from your payment so express this as a concern when agreeing on contract.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay and give general formal feedback at the end of projects.
    Intermediary fee subtraction is disappointing and unexpected from an international company.

    I have been working at Euromonitor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture - Euromonitor respects the individual and aims to help people achieve by harnessing their specific skillsets

    Friendly, social atmosphere across people of all ages (however most people in sales are aged between 25-40).

    Consultative selling is championed. There is no place for boiler room sales. Account managers and sales reps are pushed hard to understand their clients' needs and consult on how they can best achieve them.

    Great products - both within the syndicated platform and the consulting division - helping sales representatives truly believe in the value they are delivering to their clients.

    Good commission structure - uncapped and progressive - if you are a grafter and good at the job you will be a high earner.

    Great location, close to multiple street markets and a well connected part of London - office is recently refurbished with table tennis tables, table football, lunch areas (both basement and roof) and a slide!

    Regular monthly socials for the whole London office.

    Charitable donations - Euromonitor has a strong CSR presence offering charity days, mentoring programs and regular blood drives with the NHS.

    Cons

    Some departments work at a different pace to others.

    Some employees enjoy flexible working hours a bit too much, leaving others to pick up the slack

    Sometimes tenure can carry more weight than value-add

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people, enabling their individual strengths to combine with Euromonitor values.

    Keep learning, keep breaking the mould.

    I worked at Euromonitor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice and interesting peers and office location.

    Cons

    Little professional development as all training is in-house. Product quality is poor as projects have unrealisticallly short deadlines, with products becoming very detached with market realities and changes. Lack of resources to create a decent product as leadership is focused on short term sales results.

    A lot of internal politics and too many managers lacking leadership, including the leadership team itself.

    Salaries are low and management are surprisingly still trying to figure out how to improve retention.

    Would not recommend this company unless someone is really desperate for a job.

    Advice to Management

    Re-imagine the company, pay and treat employees better as there are too many politics.

    I worked at Euromonitor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company culture, flexible working hours, friendly environment, flat organisation enabling interaction with senior employees.

    Good product, strategically valid for organisations.

    Cons

    Inadequate training, extremely poor management of the team, little to no mentorship and no constructive feedback on performance.

    Unrealistic KPI's coupled with excruciating levels of micromanagement with no real professional guidance as to how to develop sales techniques.

    No clear career progression and no evidence of meritocracy.

    Advice to Management

    Consider recruiting team managers with higher levels of professionalism, knowledge of the product and with better cognition of how to delegate tasks and who can build better rapport with their employees.
