    I have been working at Advisory Board full-time (More than a 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 Management

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

    Pros

    This is a great place to start your career. You do learn a lot, get added responsibility quickly. You get lots of feedback on an ongoing basis that can help you move forward. I met great people, mentors, and friends I'm still in touch with, years later.

    Cons

    They'll pay you nothing. But generations of young and eager DC-ites have fallen for it, and now they can get away with it.

    Advice to Management

    Y'all just keep on lining your pockets! Keep on doing your thang, honey boo boo child. We've all been dumb enough to fall for it.
