    Pros

    Young professionals will benefit tremendously while at the Advisory Board Company:
    - Opportunities to contribute meaningfully to firm-wide initiatives
    - Fast growing firm = very young, high potential for promotion
    - Firm is focused on professional development, great place to start your career

    Cons

    Not too many (or significant) cons:
    - Work-culture is hit-or-miss based on department
    - Hard to see staying at ABC for more than five years (you'll outgrow the place)

    Great Work Experience but Appalling Management

    I have been working at Advisory Board full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Great exposure to senior management in the firm and folks from other departments including account management, marketing and research

    - Excellent client interaction experience; you will have the opportunity to present to C suite level executives at top hospitals and health systems

    - Opportunity to enhance analytical skills particularly using Excel

    Cons

    - Appalling senior management (particularly in the CPRM team): most of the senior managers in crimson don't have masters degrees and ABC was their first job. as a result, they lack the experience to effectively manage a team much less a new Crimson/ BI product. i've seen the whole nine yards when it comes to how employees are treated starting from yelling, harassment, to being put on focus/development plans for no good reason.

    - Managers don't value work life balance and treat employees as if they are disposable.

    - Salary is way below market standard for a job that involves such a high degree of client management and such long hours (expect 60-70 hour weeks at the least)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees in a more professional manner and incentive them to stay in the firm
