      No opinion of CEO

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

      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 (Less than a year)

        Pros

        -Fun Company Culture. Team sponsored events monthly, free expensive holiday parties, etc. -Subsidized catered lunch and lots of snacks, free company swag -Nice people for the most part

        Cons

        - You will learn everything you need to know in the first 3 months, after that there isn't much more to learn from the job. -Young management means lack of experience and mentorship, ie hard to learn from your managers because they are also in their 20s. -Issues with gossip and the job is very repetitive and monotonous. You won't be building a ton of hard skills here unless you're on software engineering. Long hours...

        Advice to Management

        Be more honest with prospective employees about who you are looking to hire and what the job entails. Give people a break during the day to just relax. Bring in older people (mid career) from a variety of fields to fill in gap of mentorship that comes from having such a young company.
