    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.

    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.

    Pros

    The learning opportunities are vast if you are a self-starter and can take responsibility for your success. Brand is well known and respected. A good stepping stone career to gain experience. Opportunities to travel and work remotely. Can be lucrative for those driven by competition and sink or swim attitudes. Above average client base. Lots of flexibility and very little micromanagement. Company-organized events and activities for employees.

    Cons

    Corporate drone environment paired with low salaries yields high turnover rate and low morale. Workplace culture is disjointed and cliquish due to the poor communication between business units. Revenue and sales targets trumps employee development and quality/delivery of products. Be prepared to take on additional responsibility with no increase in compensation. Egotistical attitudes and bullying tactics apparent in upper and middle management. There is an overall culture of bullying here that involves being sized up and ostracized by veteran employees if you don't fit in. Employees have legitimate concerns which mostly go unaddressed, forcing them to believe that it's 'just the way things are here' and their opinion doesn't matter. Overall would not recommend.

    Advice to Management

    invest in better employees over loyal ones
