    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.
