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

Pros

CEB is a growing, young, intelligent organization. The sales culture is results driven but is understanding of new, young people that need time time to develop. The Sales Development program is one of the best I have seen.

Strengths include:

-Brilliant, Ivy league educated research staff
-Best in class sales structure
-Solid brand in the market place and DC area
-Awesome young environment

Cons

Not much to say here.

Advice to Management

Keep hiring young, brilliant people.

    Pros

    Smart, social and generally talented people you get to work with
    High caliber clients you get to interact with regularly
    Great learning experience, you're on the front lines of what organizations are challenged with
    On the revenue side, strong performance yields more portfolio growth opportunity
    Not as bureaucratic and hierarchical as some organizations

    Cons

    - You're as good as your last set of performance outcomes
    - Drive for growth without much care for the amount of work required to get there and how taxing it might be on employees...set unrealistic targets without analysis of sales opportunities, product ability to generate that level of growth, volume of activities required, staff capability, etc.
    - For more senior people, career growth opportunities are minimal
    - Unequal management capabilities across the organization (some strong, some very weak)
    - Try to squeeze as much as they can from each individual...easy to get burnt out
    - Non-competitive pay (better for those coming in from the outside vs already there)
