    Pros

    Valuable experience with intelligent individuals

    Young atmosphere, if one is looking for that

    A bit of a fraternity atmosphere at times
    Asked to meet unrealistic goals
    Much turn-over/Transient

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all carrots are sweet. Sometimes, a goal is so unobtainable that it's worth even less effort.
    While some feel that the fraternity atmosphere is young and chic, others find raging hormones a turn-off.

    Reasonable friendly and low hours but not intellectually stimulating

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Research Analyst Intern in Rosslyn, VA
    Former Employee - Research Analyst Intern in Rosslyn, VA

    I worked at CEB as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are generally friendly and the work load is quite manageable. It was quite rare to work late. If you get lucky with the right team, you can do some pretty interesting things.

    Cons

    The work and people are not particularly intellectually or academically focused. The culture is more quasi-fraternity largely driven to the substantial size of the sales teams. The company also often feels as though it is trying to be a true management consulting firm but not quite there.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
