    The culture is unique and driven by millennials. You also have access to some of the top resources, The benefits are great too.

    There is a strong political atmosphere. A clearly defined in and out crowd. Also, there is a serious lack of diversity. Full of privileged white people.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lay people off. Don't sell out. You went from working for physians and hospitals to selling out to the largest health insurance company. Smart.

    - Hands down the best people I have ever worked with. It is truly an incredibly smart group of people.
    - Very flexible, the company promotes work/life balance and lives that out.
    - Gives back to the community more than most companies.

    Cons

    For the past 1yr+ things have been tumultuous. I am afraid the acquisition will change the culture of ABC.

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

    Pros

    Very intelligent, polished individuals as a whole; nice office facilities and amenities. You will become an excellent communicator and presenter.

    Cons

    Ageism insidiously embedded throughout the culture - in hiring, evaluations, activities, promotions, etc. Many senior level executives and management staff in positions way too soon in their career with little practical experience pertinent to the role or business in general. Toxic personalities who would be terminated for abhorrent workplace behavior at other firms are allowed to flourish (and promoted). Outsourcing more and more functions overseas to Chennai office.

    Advice to Management

    Too late to fix healthcare and technology, hopefully you'll address the issues with EAB.
