    I have been working at Analytic Partners full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Diverse workload: as an Associate I have had the opportunity to work on every aspect of the project life cycle from landscaping big data, to modeling and even presenting to a client.
    AP is a learning environment, the staff are from a multitude of backgrounds with varying expertise. I have had the opportunity to learn a lot so far from my coworkers.
    Flat structure is empowering: the flat management structure allows you to share ideas and improve practices and makes you feel like your voice is important.

    Cons

    HR for the every office, Dublin to Sydney is in NY. This can sometimes be frustrating when you want to ask a quick question.

    Pros

    1. Work is repetitive, which is good, you don't need take your brain to work, just function like a robot, it saves a lot of hassles
    2. there is no benefit except health insurance, the good thing is, you get a chance to contribute more to GDP growth by spending more money from your own pocket
    3. You just need to know Excel and Powerpoint, you don't need to push yourself to learn anything new, happy days!
    4. Managers just need you to work hard and keep your mouth shut, you will learn how to appreciate good managers and management skills once you change to a better place

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of, all pros

    Pros

    "Very hit and miss"

    Former Employee - Analyst in Dublin, Co. Dublin

    I worked at Analytic Partners full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity to build new skills, access to elite clients.
    The majority of the staff are really friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work long hours, very long hours at other times.
    There's a steep learning curve and you're expected to stay ahead of it. Most of the learning is self-taught or picking up nuggets of wisdom along the way.
    You have to get used to bending the truth, sometimes quite far. This isn't expected of you but it's commonplace and accepted, if not embraced.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to some of the training ideas that have been put forward.
    Focus the training more towards the analytics side of things rather than presenting.

    Pros

    Can only be used as a stepping stone to better career opportunities.

    Cons

    1. Managers don't allow people to think, just do the job as the standard process is and what they told you to do, if you have new ideas, better keep your mouth shup
    2.They would usually like to hire graduates as they want to shape them the way they want
    3. Only Excel and Powerpoint skills are needed

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the fast changing world! Allow people to think instead of just being as a robot following the work process!

    I have been working at Analytic Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Young office with minimal office politics, everyone is friendly and usually willing to help when you have a problem with data. Your excel skills will advance quickly.

    Good exposure to consulting and frequent opportunities to attend client meetings even at a junior level.

    Cons

    No initial trianing provided, you're thrown in at the deep end and it's sink or swim.

    Salary levels are low for the workload.

    Work is repetitive and data prep and modelling quickly become monotonous.

    Analysts do the bulk of the work and consultants and directors present to clients.

    High staff turnover as junior members leave for better offers and more recognition elsewhere.

    Company is young and top heavy so there are limited opportunities to progress.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a structured initial training schedule so new employees know what they are doing rather than doing something and hoping they are doing it right.

    Hire more people! There are too many projects and not enough analysts to do the work resulting in long and unfair hours for current employees.

    Pros

    - Smaller business means you get a chance to shine- there aren't the layers that other companies have
    - Massive talent the R&D teams who are really helpful and go out of their way to help with new or tricky projects
    - You're able to shape your future and work on what you can create. They're branching out from just Market Mix projects into other new areas and that means if you want to have a go at it you just have to put your hand up
    - Recognised as the best in the field at Marketing Optimisation

    Cons

    - As in all consulting companies the work is project based so can be peaks and troughs- but that happens everywhere
