      Cons

      - Long hours - Client projects need to be turned over very fast - Pressure at work to get more credits and top up salary with unlimited bonus (I guess that is a positive thing) - Office politics amongst team leaders

      Pros

      - Nice culture (friendly, open, fun colleagues, although from homogenous backgrounds) - Improvement of soft skills within first 8-10 months (client correspondence, phone correspondence) - Good pay and uncapped bonus opportunity

      Cons

      - Work can become very repeptitive and draining after 10-12 months, no task variety - Time pressure and extremely short project cycles - Promotion based on tenure and performance, not on people management skills - Weak senior management - Young, “graduate” environment (can also be seen as a pro) - Very high turnover, many people leave around one year in their associate career

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

        Pros

        It was a well-designed office.

        Cons

        Management are oppressive and narrow minded. There are promises of opportunity, but this doesn't happen. My start class that had around 20 people in it and now only has around 6 people after a year and a half. The London office's management is a joke and the worst place I have ever worked. If I could give 0 stars, I would.

        Advice to Management

        When I was there, it was clear that management's aim was to improve company culture. However, they're unwilling to listen to their employees, and ignore general courtesy. My advice is to listen to ALL employees (including non-money makers!) and NOT to discriminate against those who voice their opinions.
