    I worked at Advisory Board full-time (More than 5 years)


    The best part about ABC was the people. I worked alongside the best and brightest I had ever worked with in 30+ years in IT. The Austin office was really beautiful and well located.


    The company was acquired by United Healthcare in mid-2017 and my division was axed. Otherwise, the worst thing about ABC (at least the Austin office) was the coffee, which was mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    I really, truly wish you had stayed independent. I have looked at the job listings at the company that acquired you, and nothing seems as compelling as the position I had when it was ABC.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC) in March 2017.


    Took approx. 6 weeks. Got an email to set up a call with HR which lasted for half an hour. General behavioral questions and a run down of the Resume. Got an email next day for a technical phone interview. The technical phone interview lasted for half an hour and consisted of discussion regarding the job role, requirement and how well I understood the role. Received an email after 3 days for in-person interviews at the DC office. I had four half an hour each, back to back interviews with different individuals. First one was more of behavioral and couple of case scenario based interview. The second and third interview was with future colleagues and comprised of general behavioral and job-related question regarding the expected roles and how I was a fit for it. The fourth and the last interview was with a Senior Directed who looked to be in a state of rush and did some cross questioning. All the interviews went really smooth. But unfortunately, no offer.
