No opinion of CEO

Pros

fun to work with like minded young people. the performance review process is quite illuminating and much more developed than at other firms

Cons

Being a mix between consulting and industry work, it is hard to transition to either. Some skills are not taught well that are useful in external positions (e.g., powerpoint).

Advice to Management

Develop techniques to better manage high turnover of millenials. Their expectations are different than other generations of workers. Hire more senior manager with a balance of EQ and IQ vs. just IQ.

    Pros

    If you want some great resume bullets, need to change careers, or are otherwise unemployed, CEB is a good bet. It's was like a second MBA in many ways. Pay is good. Your co-workers rock. Maintain as much distance from folks above MD as possible.

    Cons

    Having worked in numerous places including military, finance, consulting, and non-profit, I can confidently say that CEB is the worst run organization I have ever seen. I've worked with C-level execs, diplomats, general officers, and senior elected officials and I have never witnessed a less professional cadre of management. Senior mgt inherited an amazing product which they have thoroughly trashed. Exec committee meetings are embarrassing, literally a joke. The board is clueless, absolutely clueless, about the product. They simply do not know what the company does. No idea where the shareholders are....

    Advice to Management

    ask for help, then actually implement the advise; or do something else

    Pros

    Good place if you like research all the time.

    Cons

    Poor communication. Unfriendliness. People were very brutal towards each other.

    Advice to Management

    You're not really a consulting firm, you're a research firm.
