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

    Pros

    It's a great place to work on challenging projects with some very bright people. The client list is impressive and management is committed to moving the company forward.

    Cons

    The office space is a bit small so sometimes it feels like you are stepping on toes to get a conference room booked and little space to use outside of one's desk.

    I have been working at Teneo full-time

    Pros

    Promotion is based on performance and work ethic as opposed to hierarchy
    Work is challenging and interesting
    Smart, hard-working, fun group of people
    Opportunity to take on more "senior" projects for more junior employees
    Lots of responsibility and autonomy, even for more junior team members (some may not view this as a positive thing)
    Good benefits, including generous maternity leave and good 401K plan

    Cons

    Long hours
    You are expected to adapt and learn quickly
    There is not a traditional, internal training program – the loose onboarding structure is not for everyone
    Fast pace and high expectations from the get-go
    Very competitive environment – but not for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on investing in your junior talent.

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

    Pros

    - Clients are second to none, and peerless access to decision-makers at clients .
    - Treated as a peer and colleague early, and given the opportunity to contribute as such
    - Great travel opportunities if you're on the right client
    - Staff are world-class and push you to go further

    Cons

    - Expectations are high, so if you can't meet them you won't last.
    - Work-life balance can be a challenge

    I worked at Teneo full-time

    Pros

    Has some recognition, interesting clients, global reach.

    Cons

    The junior staff is literally abused. If you want people to work over 15 hours a day they should be compensated appropriately. The level of micromanaging within the company is on another level. HR is a joke.

    Keep focus on maintaining Teneo culture, DNA and quality while growing at steady pace.

    I worked at Teneo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    401k is decent, though pretty standard. Snacks on occasion, Refrigerator is stocked with beverages, unlimited vacation/sick days (Though Senior Leadership frowns upon you taking it too often), Happy hour on occasion (sometimes about once a month)

    Cons

    Micromanaging, zero room for growth, low salaries, terribly expensive health insurance, long work hours, politics play a major part (no surprise here), high turnover because of the above, Little benefits compared to how much money Senior Leadership is taking in,

    Advice to Management

    Give junior staff the chance to grow and develop instead of only caring about how much you make and your success. It goes along way. Be a leader not a boss
