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

    Pros

    CEB has a great culture with a lot of young people. You get exposure to the C-suite of Fortune 500 companies and learn a lot about whichever practice you are in.

    Cons

    management can be frustrating at times and can be overly focused on numbers. The pay is also not great and you often get the sense that they feel AMx's and BDx's can be easily replaced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of young people at this company who are not sure what they want to do. Rather than forcing them into sales, take time to see what their aspirations are and help them get there. Then, they'll be more motivated to work hard for you.

    I have been working at CEB full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Really smart, talented coworkers.
    -High quality research and products - our insights are second to none.
    -Long-term career path and room to grow if you're willing to stick it out and if you're any good at your job. We set a high bar and don't apologize for it!
    -High degree of independence in your work.

    Cons

    -Internal politics can be tricky to manage until you learn the ropes.
    -Work-life balance is great at some times of the year, lacking during others.
    -Company is making efforts to innovate its product suite, but isn't there yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to make big bets and invest heavily in them; we invest partway in too many things. Fewer, bigger bets are riskier, but generate the best returns when they work.
