I worked at College Board

Pros

Fantastic location right across from central park, the people are generally well educated and friendly but the salary is below par, although this might be expected as it's a non profit organization

Cons

You really have to pay your dues here for any hope of career advancement within the company. This makes it a great job for recent graduates but not so much for movers and shakers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to uphold your mission and commitment to excellence and accessibility to education but also don't be afraid to innovate in your internal policies and proedures.

    I worked at College Board

    Pros

    Easy going culture for employees. Employees are in retirement mode. They hire consultants to do real work. Generally good people except few black sheeps.

    Cons

    Too much politics. Naturally if too many idle minds get together, this will happen. Many entrenched employees power-trip and vent on consultants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have good assessments system in place for consultants as well as employees. Also reduce reliance on consultants and push employees somewhat.
