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

Pros

-Great company culture - young fun people, great management if in the right practice
-Good Benefits - healthcare, extra PTO for volunteer hours, working from home is an option, tons of PTO given etc
-Exposure to the business world / top execs even at a low level - perhaps the only comparison would be true consulting firms but even then, you probably have less 1 on 1 conversations with the senior most person
-Training - tons of training opportunities, many are mandatory and worth it

Cons

-Hours, depending on the season. In the summer you're free, in December you live at the office
- Pay.. could be better. Or made up for with incentives like cell phone/ free laptop for lower level employees
-Development - they stress that they're happy to work on your personal development but some managers are better than others

    Okay company if you know where your career is headed, but stay away if you don't know what you want to do long term.

    I worked at CEB full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very dynamic environment. Great exposure. Global footprint. Ability to attract top-tier talent. Strong financials. Great location.

    Cons

    Who you know will get you farther than what you know. Promotions are not 100% merit based. Work life balance leaves alot to be desired. 1 year turnover rate > 50% and a 2 year turnover rate > 75%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inability to retain top level talent comes with a price that CEB keeps paying, and paying, and paying.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
