    I have been working at Advisory Board as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I can't say enough good things about the professional standards of the editorial and administrative staff at the Advisory Board Company. They are extremely knowledgeable about health care policy and IT. They give me a lot of independence as a contract reporter and trust my news judgment and story ideas but they are always there to offer editorial support and guidance. They are thorough when editing scripts and they always check facts -- something that’s drifted out of practice in many online publications. They always maintain a respectful and appreciative attitude towards the reporters.

    Cons

    They are based in Washington, D.C. so they have few staff positions in San Francisco.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would encourage more integration of video and graphics into their online stories. Though that isn't always their call.
