    I worked at Advisory Board full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Food trucks for lunch, Starbucks across the street; independent work

    Cons

    No room for advancement; some executives are conniving and petty unless you are up their butt instead of doing your job; not honest with employees about company issues that affect their job stability and they should be; the cafe is ridiculously expensive.

      I worked at Advisory Board full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      The best part about ABC was the people. I worked alongside the best and brightest I had ever worked with in 30+ years in IT. The Austin office was really beautiful and well located.

      Cons

      The company was acquired by United Healthcare in mid-2017 and my division was axed. Otherwise, the worst thing about ABC (at least the Austin office) was the coffee, which was mediocre at best.

      Advice to Management

      I really, truly wish you had stayed independent. I have looked at the job listings at the company that acquired you, and nothing seems as compelling as the position I had when it was ABC.
