Pros

Austin is awesome, good people. Expanding rapidly.

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

    Pros

    - Extremely flexible schedule, PTO benefits, and remote opportunities
    - The company's growth opens up lots of opportunities for new roles
    - The work is meaningful; members see value in our product
    - Very early access to high-level/c-suite members
    - Fantastic health care and marketing bootcamp for anyone looking to work before graduate studies

    Cons

    - Pay could be better
    - Supervisors can be petty and sometimes make decisions based on favoritism
    - Work-life balance is tough in some roles (particularly associate-level)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Boost pay levels for these roles! You're not keeping up with the rest of Washington/peer employers. Yes, it is an employer's market now, but the reputation for low-pay is getting very sticky and will be hard to shake off.

    Make very careful decisions about who gets to take on mid-level management roles. The folks overseeing the associate-level staff set the tone for the firm. They need to be mature, professional, and competent. Elevate people who will be good managers, not people who are good at their job.

    Great as first job with no experience, bad for long term growth. Used as a launch pad for early career

    I worked at Advisory Board full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Great, young, vibrant culture
    -Extraordinary internal career opportunities
    -Opportunity for flex roles and travel

    Cons

    -High turnover, "revolving-door" attitude for entry level positions
    -Very low salaries compared to industry averages
    -Support departments aren't adequately managed and given proper attention/directives, firm focus is strictly on revenue making teams

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on skill development. Train middle managers in professional management skills, as unqualified low-level positions are promoted in to manager roles prematurely. Offer competitive salary to attract and keep talent.
