    I worked at The Advisory Board Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some very smart people, the reputation and image in the market is stellar. The work is innovative and very interesting.

    Cons

    It's definitely an "inside baseball" culture. There is a key group at the upper level who are elitist. A lot of very young, inexperienced and immature people in important (not necessarily high level) roles. There can be repercussions to that.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to those around you who do not look or act like you - they could have some fantastic things to offer.
