    Pros

    Smart people and great career path,. Opportunities to start in one department and grow.

    Cons

    You will have to wait your turn in some cases. But this is the nature of working for and established public company vs a emerging private company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep leading by example!

    Pros

    CEB has a very friendly work environment. Everyone is excellent about including one another, helping others when needed, and creating a positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    The entry level associate position doesn't have impressive training and the job can feel monotonous at times, typically not offering many challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Ramp up the training and make the Business Development Associate a more involved position, making them a true partner in the sales process.

    I worked at CEB full-time

    Pros

    Research analysts and senior research analysts really get to dig into primary research techniques and hone interviewing, writing, and presentation skills. There's a great culture that merits good ideas above all else, and the crowd is generally fairly young and happy-hour prone.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work can be a bit dry.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, people are really friendly and on the younger side. Interact with people from all over. They are very inclusive of all cultures which is really great if you aren't white.

    Cons

    Advancement can be difficult, pay is below average for the area. Managers can micromanage a lot of the time which can cramp your style if you like to be creative with your design styles.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay for positions, I think for the amount of work that needs to be done the compensation is a bit lower than other companies within the local area.

    Pros

    Full agile methodology
    Helpful teammates
    People care about the work you present
    Lots of training to know about the CEB in depth.

    Cons

    Micro management can be clearly seen many times
    Don't have a set process to follow as the process changes with the project

    Advice to Management

    Need to have a set of documents for new hire to know the process for each and individual jobs. So they can pick up rather than depending on human knowledge transfer skills

    Cons

    I have been working at CEB full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Terrific place to begin a career, learn, and get exposure to global businesses and their executives. CEB affords me access to some of the most senior execs and their brand opens the door for you.

    Cons

    A lot of youth in management. Tends to be happy-clappy in motivation. Pay is lower than comparable jobs in account management and/or sales.

    Advice to Management

    The direction is good and improvements have been made. Don't rest. Also, the leap from the first few years to a revenue goal owner is very big.
