    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Frost & Sullivan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Early adoption of responsibilities, varied consulting assignments, international work experience

    Cons

    Despite being a market research firm having been around over 50 years, consultants are required to search free sources for secondary data, company should subscribe to data portals. To cut costs, 4-5 consulting cases are passed to consultants with illogical time frames yet great quality work is expected. No overtime paid and work spills into weekends (no paid weekends).

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fairly with workload and overtime to reduce Frost's very high turnover rate.

    I have been working at Frost & Sullivan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I came from a hostile work environment and was thrilled with the difference I found at Frost. The division is like family - we love, we fight, we work hard and have each other's back. Open door policy - I can talk to my leaders at any time. Work life balance is great - bosses are understanding and we work long hours at events so they are appreciative. Its hard learning to work with a remote team, but if you're a good communicator then there's no issue.

    Cons

    Company could do more for remote employees.
