Great life-work balance, good growth opportunity

Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

ProsThe experience at CEB really depends on which function and practice you work in. If you work in sales, especially at an entry level position, your job won't be too exciting and pay is not that great. If you work in research, the pay is more competitive as CEB hires entry-level analyst positions from Ivy League universities. But even within research the work-life balance is variable depending on which practice you are in. I have heard mixed things from my colleagues. But in my own personal experience I work 40-45 hours a week, and receive adequate compensation. Although the base pay is relatively low (~50k for campus hires), bonuses can range upwards of 40% of base depending on performance.

ConsThere is a lot of inefficiencies and bureaucracies. The quality of the job at CEB will definitely depend on who your manager is. Mine is a pleasure to work for, but I have heard some not-so-good stories.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview manager performance to make sure that they are able to keep their direct reports motivated and satisfied.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
