    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Wood Mackenzie full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice offices, intelligent if political colleagues, good benefits, global presence and network

    Cons

    A tech platform that obstructs productivity, utter disdain for both subject matter expertise and diversity of thought as well as gender.

    Advice to Management

    Time to take your buyout millions and depart for the trout streams. A Eurocentric market model in the American market overseen by UK nationals is not a recipe for righting this leaky ship.
