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 for 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.
