I have been working at CEB full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Ability to help Executives at the best companies shape their functions and strategy
View into many industries, companies & how they operate
CEB colleagues are very smart

Cons

Company expects alot from you regarding size of territory, metrics.
Complex product - alot of research to know.
Internal Mobility difficult, especially for lower levels

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within in an easier way at lower levels. Don't punish employees who start their careers with CEB and reward outside hires with same experience.

  1. 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.

    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow your talent, make your employees feel important
