Disapproves of CEO

I worked at CEB as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The people are generally friendly and the work load is quite manageable. It was quite rare to work late. If you get lucky with the right team, you can do some pretty interesting things.

Cons

The work and people are not particularly intellectually or academically focused. The culture is more quasi-fraternity largely driven to the substantial size of the sales teams. The company also often feels as though it is trying to be a true management consulting firm but not quite there.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Valuable experience with intelligent individuals
    Resources abound
    Young atmosphere, if one is looking for that

    Cons

    A bit of a fraternity atmosphere at times
    Asked to meet unrealistic goals
    Much turn-over/Transient

    Advice to Management

    Not all carrots are sweet. Sometimes, a goal is so unobtainable that it's worth even less effort.
    While some feel that the fraternity atmosphere is young and chic, others find raging hormones a turn-off.

    Pros

    Great talent, ruthlessy meritocratic culture

    Groupthink on steroids, performance management of the executive team by the Board is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Reward business building outcomes, not behaviors.
