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

    Pros

    The events division has a great family atmosphere! Between the travel and long hours on-site at events, it is even more important than usual to enjoy who you work with. Additionally, they are very flexible and understanding with work/life balance and situations. Very positive experience working here!

    Cons

    Your experience depends on your direct manager/boss and how willing/able you are to keep up with the work given.

    I worked at Frost & Sullivan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Intelligent, conscientious coworkers
    -Very flexible work schedule
    -Empathetic mid-level management
    -Ability to move up and take on more responsibilities

    Cons

    -Below average pay
    -Consultant bonuses go seemingly unpaid
    -Sell projects that the firm (nor any other firm) cannot deliver
    -Work / life balance can be tricky
    -No training or development materials for consultants
    -Computer equipment is nothing short of abysmal, consultants often use their personal computer instead
    -IT systems as a whole are circa 2003, almost impressive in a sad, unfortunate way
    -Cliquey cultures in some offices
    -Seems like executives are just trying to squeeze every last penny out of the company they can until they go belly-up

    Advice to Management

    -Pay your consultants what you say you'll pay them
    -Give them the necessary equipment to do their job
    -Don't resist change, it's obvious this company is in desperate need of it

    Pros

    Flexible, Thoughtful, Opportunity, Entrepreneurs, -they do provide a good deal of opportunity for people to be successful in what they do

    Cons

    Management cannot get anything done because of constant flux in company and poor decisions. They have no idea how to manage cash and the CEO keeps changing his mind

    Advice to Management

    Get real, start lowering things that are a waste of money and get rid of all these silly offices that done make money. Squandering the opportunity of this company.

    Pros

    Great experience from a reputable and globally recognized company.

    Cons

    Amount of work for the level of pay is not worth it. I received my first assignment before I even knew where the restroom was. There is so much work sometimes that it’s difficult to produce your best work, and so little direction or clarification that you aren’t sure what the client wants because you aren’t on the client calls all the time so you end up redoing work to fit the scope that was never given or mentioned to you. Also, you are tracked by number of hours that you spend on a project except for they are finite, and if your project is extended because the client is happy and wants to move forward into a new phase, you will be stuck doing the work without any additional hours which drops your metrics. Leadership knows this but expects your to make it work. When you have 5+ projects that you have been working on for months and you haven’t gotten any additional hours, the metrics don’t work in your favor. Nothing you can do about it except for learn what you can and get out.

    Advice to Management

    No point, unless you are an investor, they won’t care.
