Frost & Sullivan Review
Senior Manager Sponsorship Sales (Current Employee) –  Manhattan, NYMay 9, 2018
While this job could be great and highly rewarding, however management sets you up for failure from the minute you walk in. Typically, they don't know what is going on, so it is difficult for you to understand what it going on. The lack of communication is the biggest issue. You could go months doing things the wrong way, not know you are actually making a mistake until a review or a meeting w/ management. It is a very difficult place to become successful.
Pros
Attend a Frost Event
Cons
Management & Communication

Great Team Environment
Senior Promotions Executive, Americas & EIA (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXNovember 2, 2017
Best Practices is a subset of Frost & Sullivan, who mainly focuses on research and sharing that research with clients to enable them to stay competitive in the market place. The Best Practices team works with companies excelling in their respective industries and recognizes them for their achievements. Great team to work with!

Challanging times currently at Frost & Sullivan. Projects aren't currently funded due to lack of funds. One of the project that I last presented to the bpard is still on hold for the last 18 months.

Senior Accountant (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMay 26, 2017
It's not a bad company to work for but they don't pay much. There is not much chance for promotion. It is a privately owned company and that means it is hard to climb up the ladder.

Good Entry-Level Job into Business Consulting
Research Analyst (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMay 23, 2017
Frost & Sullivan does everything on the cheap, and the quality of its work reflects that. Turnover is terrible, and promotions are few and far between. Although it's technically an American company, its management style is very heavily influenced by the predominantly Indian management team.

I lucked into starting on a great team with great management, until my boss was fired (for no good reason). Then, things sort of fell apart and most of my team left the organization.
Pros
Good Introduction to the Consulting World
Cons
Compensation was inadequate

Strong company with very high goals
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Rockville Centre, NYFebruary 6, 2017
It's important for a company to set high goals for themselves, but when a division finishes up 20%, it's unrealistic to expect them to finish up 20% again the next year-- and every year following.
Bringing end users and solution providers together to form intimate working relationships is great to see. When 10-12 hr days are the norm and extra work expected to be done on the weekends the money becomes not worth it.
Pros
Celebration dinners for hitting targets
Cons
Working gruelling hours and always hunting for prospects

As with every sales job, some people just do not make it. The tools are not provided for you with Frost. Not worth the wasted time.

Burn and Churn
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Franklin, TNFebruary 11, 2015
Expect the unexpected everyday.

Every quarter expect to change corporate strategy and sell the intangible.

The analyst teams and awards team will control the direction.

The awards are B grade compared to JD Power and are the key to profit within Frost.
Cons
Job Security comes at a premium.
