    Pros

    Great people in the Austin office.
    Beautiful buildings.
    Very, very smart people.
    Tremendous dedication to volunteering.
    Great benefits, probably the best total package I've ever seen.

    Cons

    Focus is often centered around the company, not market expertise. They hire a lot of recent grads, give them management responsibilities right away and they are often put into roles without the needed experience.
    It became too corporate, slow, and innovation stalled.
    There are a handful of senior leaders (both male and female) who are not respected and who are rude to employees. Has created somewhat of a jerk culture at the top.
    Support orgs (HR, IS, Facilities) were deemphasized so employees lost their advocates and people who could make the changes they wanted.

    Advice to Management

    Put together a list of your A players who left the company across all departments. Hire them back into high impact roles and let them help restore the company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview

    I initially applied for a different position and after interviewing for that position twice, they told me to come in for an in person interview for the Membership Associate position. This change of direction seemed to come out of nowhere, but I'm sure it's common with big companies like this. The in person interview was broken into three individual meetings with different members of the team. The interviewers were extremely nice and welcoming, but there was not much communication with me about who I was supposed to be meeting with and when.
