    I worked at CEB full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company performs interesting research and that reason, it’s a fun offering to pitch. Lots of colleagues in the same age bracket.

    Cons

    Management was tremendously ill-equipped to run a satellite office in Minneapolis. If the managers were top rate, that would be fine. Unfortunately, most of low level mgmt are individuals who graduate SSPD and don’t know what’s next but definitely know they don’t want to sell or they tried to sell but didn’t deliver. Why is this the profile of many managers?

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. The managers don’t speak openly. They offer very little support outside of administrative tasks, like approving expenses, managing PTO, etc... reconsider how you hire for mgmt roles. We had an inexperienced individual contributor and mediocre sales person selling SMB.
