    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Vigeo Eiris full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Great millennial workplace: modern office, no dress-code (go in your pajamas if you want), excellent work-life balance options through working from home policies and time management based more on your goals rather than hours achieved per day. -Best place to learn all about sustainability, CSR, circular economy, green bonds...etc. If you want to pursue a fresh start elsewhere or deepen your understanding of what is to come in the next decade regarding emerging issues in all industries, this is the place to start. -Great people from all over the world and possibilities of multicultural experiences such as visiting other sites while on holiday.

    Cons

    -Low salaries and low career progression: salaries are below market and career progression is rare and slow. The company offers you doing the same all over again for years and tries to see it as a "promotion". the other option is waiting that someone quits to apply internally to that position, which is also very rare. Under this system, management is composed of people who have been 10 or more years until they finally made it be a research manager or another management position. -Disperse management and development of expertise: As an analyst, you are on your own, there are not standardised handbooks to learn and internalise an ESG methodology and assessment of companies that change on a monthly basis, creating confusion among analysts. There are as many ways of doing something methodologically, as there are analysts, since internal expertise is not consolidated and unified under clear norms or guidelines. -Lack of an overall strategy as a company: the company has been operating at a loss for ten years and changes to modernise the company have been slow and the company is lagging behind its competitors with an old fashioned and complex methodology that not even managers understand at times. If it weren't for the Moody's acquisition the company would have limited resources by now.
