    "Interesting Research - Poor Sales Model"

    Former Employee - Strategic Research Consultant in Arlington, VA

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

    Pros

    My work was in research - which was very interesting. Lots of amazing work is done with their client firms. A very rare opportunity to learn best practices from hundreds of firms.

    Cons

    The sales approach was, at times, unprofessional. I had to support the sales team, which depending on the sales person, could feel like the movie boilerroom.

    Advice to Management

    Beef up the professionalism of your sales staff, including management.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at CEB full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Constant opportunities to advance
    - Great exposure to senior leadership
    - Intellectual contributions are truly recognized
    - Amazing exposure to very senior clientele

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is a long-running joke
    - Fast pace of the job translates into expectations of equally fast paced advancement; if you don't move up within six months-one year, you'll be forced out
    - Middle management is exceedingly young and made up of a number of people who have only worked at CEB, resulting in a high-school cliquish environment

    Advice to Management

    Bring in people to the middle management layer who have worked elsewhere - constant promotion from within means your company culture becomes incestuous and not open to change.
