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

Pros

- Extremely flexible schedule, PTO benefits, and remote opportunities
- The company's growth opens up lots of opportunities for new roles
- The work is meaningful; members see value in our product
- Very early access to high-level/c-suite members
- Fantastic health care and marketing bootcamp for anyone looking to work before graduate studies

Cons

- Pay could be better
- Supervisors can be petty and sometimes make decisions based on favoritism
- Work-life balance is tough in some roles (particularly associate-level)

Advice to Management

Boost pay levels for these roles! You're not keeping up with the rest of Washington/peer employers. Yes, it is an employer's market now, but the reputation for low-pay is getting very sticky and will be hard to shake off.

Make very careful decisions about who gets to take on mid-level management roles. The folks overseeing the associate-level staff set the tone for the firm. They need to be mature, professional, and competent. Elevate people who will be good managers, not people who are good at their job.

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

    Pros

    -Great, young, vibrant culture
    -Extraordinary internal career opportunities
    -Opportunity for flex roles and travel

    Cons

    -High turnover, "revolving-door" attitude for entry level positions
    -Very low salaries compared to industry averages
    -Support departments aren't adequately managed and given proper attention/directives, firm focus is strictly on revenue making teams

    Advice to Management

    Focus on skill development. Train middle managers in professional management skills, as unqualified low-level positions are promoted in to manager roles prematurely. Offer competitive salary to attract and keep talent.

    Pros

    Work environment, happy hours, people, location.

    Cons

    SALARY verse workload, the worst. They work you like a dog and pay less than $40,000. All administrative task.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, or give associate less work. The role is already uninteresting.
