    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Excellent training program, good healthcare and employee benefits, very social and engaging corporate culture in the office for off-hours (community vibe).

    Cons

    Constant restructuring of various departments and shifting teams; responsibilities change quarterly and not very easy to pass through the training program as a result. Time to complete the entire training program can take between 3-4 years, when they claim 1-2. Long hours and over-reaching sales objectives in the account management division, causing a huge drain on performance and morale.

    Advice to Management

    Organize yourselves better and implement a more rational training program.

    Pros

    Great benefits, laid back work environment, fun culture, good pay, smart people and your rewarded for hard work.

    Cons

    Can be challenging at times to work with such smart people but it's also a pro because it pushes you to be better as well.

    I have been working at CEB full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing Benefits and pro-employee culture. Great hours, comraderie and very humble and easy-to-approach managers. I love working here and the team I work with. Firm values support employees pursuing their interests and provide the flexibility to move divisions and even geographies within the company.

    Cons

    Turn-over: This is more internal movement where employees move positions within the company to explore their interests but it means you may see a bit of movement once you have become comfortable with your group. Compensation may be slightly low compared to industry standards but work-life balance is much higher compared to industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain company culture, adjust compensation to market rates

    I have been working at CEB full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Outstanding training, impressive work environment, people always want you to succeed and help you to do so, opportunities for growth and transitions (even into a very different role). 19 PTO days, full benefits including vision and dental, 401K, the works. It's seriously an amazing place to work. I've worked in both the DC and Chicago office.

    Cons

    It isn't exactly what you expect at first, as you start "training" in a dialing role at first, but it definitely isn't cold calling. It's extremely helpful and you work with relevant programs you'll need to be familiar with for a successful career. It's essentially customer service as well as a deeper familiarization with the tools you'll be using, so it's helpful. Just a little unclear when first entering the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Excellent work environment. Friendly and outgoing staff. PTO, and benefits are good. Excellent place to work. bonus structure is good.

    Cons

    The review process is a little odd. Then team communications needs to be a bit better. Along with the team structure.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good just needs to provide a bit more direction and insight into current and future projects.

    Pros

    The people are incredibly nice for the most part. There is this crazy atmosphere of positivity in the office at Evanta.

    Cons

    It doesn't seem like we really accomplished anything for the insane amount of work we do. Certain departments are glorified while others are ignored. There is awful communication between departments. and management has very poor decision making skills.

    Advice to Management

    Think about something first before you decide to do it.

    Pros

    Great People, awesome benefits, cool business model, upward mobility, name recognition, great work life balance, decent location, really good support system, people care

    Cons

    We do not really get paid that much. It seems to be the other side of the good work / life balance coin. It kind of offsets the reasonable hours, but not entirely.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate what each department does better to your employees. A lot of people do not know who to go to when they need something. It would also help people understand our business model better.
