    I have been working at Advisory Board full-time (more than 3 years)


    I've been at the Advisory Board for three years and have been promoted three times. Entry-level salary may be low, but you get promoted quickly into higher salaries, insane benefits, awesome work/life balance, and lots of time off so I feel like it's very fair. People just complain a lot. If you're a strong performer, you will be rewarded. It's easy to double your entry-level salary in 18-24 months if you work for it.

    - lots of promotion opportunities and flexible career paths
    -casual dress code and modern work space
    -40 hour work week, no expectation to email outside of business hours
    -10 paid hours/month for volunteer service
    -10 paid hours/month for fitness
    -20+ paid days off, 10 holidays, 4 quarterly 'firm recesses' (4 day weekends)
    -cafe, gym, rooftop lounge
    -free starbucks coffee, teas, hot chocolate, sodas, occasional meals
    -incredible health care coverage
    -lots of training courses, internal internships, professional development


    There have been a few bumps transitioning from a research company to a technology company - lacks technical resources/talent to deliver value

    Interview Details

    I was given an interview through an employee referral. Within a week I had my first round interview. It lasted 45 minutes and was filled with at least a dozen questions about my resume, the company, my career goals, time management, weaknesses etc. The interviewer was very receptive and polite. She told me at the end of the interview that I would be invited to a second round in DC. She discussed my availabilities in the next two weeks and told me I should receive a confirmation email in the next two business days and I did. Overall a very positive experience. I go to DC in two weeks for my final round interview.
