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

Pros

Competitive, energetic, young, smart body of marketers.

Cons

Can be difficult to get promoted, incredibly low pay, a little favoritism among a select group of MA's, a little unprofessional, slightly inappropriate environment develops when you drink, work, play with your colleagues so closely.

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

    Pros

    A great place to gain professional experience right out of school. Lots of happy hours, jeans casual Fridays, and opportunities to volunteer.

    Cons

    The pay is below market average, and DC (headquarters) is super expensive. I imagine anyone old enough to want to buy a home will move on for better salary, who might otherwise have stayed. The youth of the firm can also be a drawback, as the associates right out of undergraduate school really do not know how to behave professionally. Also, middle management is equally young and inexperienced, and they seem to be promoted based on fit (read: clique) than professionalism or readiness.

    Advice to Management

    Drive professionalism from the top town. The happy hours and occasional jeans days are great, but the super young and under-qualified middle management is not. Start training entry-level staff and everyone in between on being professional. If you don't, you will lose top-quality talent to competitors with more mature staff.


  2. "Great company to work for if you're ok with ambiguity"
