    Great place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat place to work overall. Culture is very pro-growth and progressive for such a large company. I would recommend the company to anyone serious about consulting

    ConsThe effectiveness of the behavioral interviewing approach is questionable. The interviewing technique really does force many candidates to make stuff up just to be able to answer the questions that HR force feeds the hiring managers.

    Great place to work - intellectually stimulating and energetic culture

    Director (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsA great sense of pride working for an industry-leader, customers value products and services, growth opportunities, unmatched reputation, access to some of the best thought-leaders in the industry, fun work environment and great people

    ConsIt is a performance culture. If you have a high-achievement drive, and want to contribute, you'll do well here. If you have an aversion to pressure or if you're looking for an easy job, this isn't the place for you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Could not love my job more!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsColleagues you work with - smart, type A, motivated but wired to help others and have a passion for the business

    Business model - none like it out there. Intellectually stimulating & fits in a key nitch

    SF Office - small, collaborative, high performing, strong management team

    ConsVOLUME - I thrive in volume, but if you don't, it may not be the place for you. We work with a lot of clients and field a lot of requests internally and externally each day. Be sure you are willing and motivated to work at that pace!

    Enterprise Sales Heaven!

    Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you are an experienced and talented sales professional who can handle a fast pace and a somewhat nerdy product - this is an awesome place to work. They have access to senior executives at over 90% of Fortune 500 companies. You can't help but become a better sales person working here. The training and support better than any other organization I have worked for. The people that work here are all smart and nice.

    ConsThe pace is unlike anything I've experienced before but not a total negative as this makes for great comraderie amongst workers. You'll also accomplish more than you can imagine.
    Because the product is nerdy, not everyone "gets it" - including customers. This product does not generally sell itself so having the ability to communicate value as oppossed to price and feature is an absolute necessity.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Culture, Great CEO

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYoung, entrepreneurial, intelligent people, well run organization, based on solid business principles, great culture to learn and absorb

    CEB Internship Program

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Rosslyn, VA

    ProsAs the company prides itself on, CEB really does have the perfect mix of people who are both smart, and nice, which is a combination you don't normally find everywhere. The managers are genuinely interested in the intern's experience over the summer and are looking to help develop their professional careers. The internship program is extremely structured with providing a mentor as well as a peer-coach to every intern to help shape their career development. The senior management also took the time to get to know the interns, which is extremely rare for a company of this size.

    ConsThe one downside is that the company structure is extremely difficult to understand, but after working at the company for some time it is easier to grasp and explain.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
