    I worked at CEB full-time

    Pros

    Top two pros would be the people who are smart and great and the company allows for a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Very corporate (which has both pros and cons), middle management lacks clear communication on the state of the agency matters; managers need better training.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear, authentic and frequent in your communication on company happenings, not just what employees may want to hear. Encourage middle management to showcase talent of their younger, more junior employees.

    I worked at CEB full-time

    Pros

    Corporate Executive Board is the classiest employer I've worked for. I was proud to work for this best practices company.

    Cons

    I very much wanted to be cross-trained in other areas of my department as that would have made my job that much more well-rounded. I believe cross-training between staff would also have created better morale and teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Please ask your employees for feedback about how they feel about morale and teamwork, and whether they would like to know how to do their teammates' duties.

    Cons

    Micro-management has become an issue with Gartner acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible.

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

    Pros

    Upward mobility, pay in terms of age & experience, fun and young coworkers, and great benefits.

    Cons

    From an account management perspective, I think that they have made a habit in the past of giving people in their mid-20's too many clients with too much responsibility. Gartner is better about this, but this issue was prevalent in the past.

    Pros

    good work, life balance, telecommuting, variety of work

    Cons

    Burn and churn
    Overworked and underpaid
    No growth opportunity
    Lack of visibility
    Just a number
    If you are a part of the insideclique you are okay, if you are not well good luck
