      I worked at ValueNotes

      Pros

      Project Manager are well aware of the research market. They understand the requirement of the projects and support the junior analysts. MD is one of the best expert you'd ever work for. He's the 'Google' of Investment World.

      Cons

      I can't think of any cons working here. It's a good company to be working at.

      I worked at ValueNotes full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Client exposure - Not many companies allow this for lower level of analysts, this is a great way to gain some experience speaking to higher executives in foreign client companies Project quality at times is great, CI & Due diligence projects are worth it if you're in the eye of your manager Monthly review meeting - The CEO takes this seriously, allowing inputs from all employees on how the company should meet...

      Cons

      All the other times, project quality is worst. If it is not mentioned to you early, most projects involve cold-calling to obtain proprietary information. No database subscription and thus, limited capacity to perform high-level secondary research. Inexperienced project managers - Always led to problems and politics. They will blame the analysts for problems created by them or Senior analysts. Illogical recruitment...

      I worked at ValueNotes full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Career starter in research and advisory without an MBA

      Cons

      Crappy pay - you'll barely survive. it is good as you won't have any time for recreation anyway HR - worse than government employees. They will never ever do their job promptly and if you ask them to do something that is part of their job description, they will do it as a favour to you and tell you not to bother them so much Vampirish project managers - they will ask you to work on weekends without hesitation cause...

      I worked at ValueNotes full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Can be helpful if you want to learn google searching techniques! A very good company if you are okay to work 9-10 hours a day for 19k/month.

      Cons

      1. Zero work life balance. 2. No perks 3. The work is monotonous and not productive. They'll expect you to uniquely present google results. 4. The so-called 'free lunch' is not free. It's deducted from the monthly payout. Not worth it! 5. The higher management is unprofessional to the root, they've created an environment which you'd expect as a daily wage labor. 6. They are noobs in the market, I'd recommend you...

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at ValueNotes full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Friendly atmosphere, small team, lunch is provided (although it's deducted from salary), management is approachable, employee structure is flat, young crowd, lots of energy

      Cons

      No work life balance, management doesn't care about employee satisfaction. Pay is low compared to the work, long working hours with no flexibility

      Advice to Management

      Management needs to have a professional approach towards the development of the organization
