    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Advisory Board full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My manager was excellent and the benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Senior leadership was terrible. The company was extremely disorganized and employees were often rewarded for unethical behavior. My understanding is that the benefits are much worse now that Optum acquired the company.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Advisory Board full-time

    Pros

    PTO, health insurance isn’t good

    Cons

    Management is very passive aggressive and nit picky about almost everything. There’s also lack of diversity within the company and I’ve experienced multiple situations of microagression.
