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

Pros

The company hires a lot of young people, they have a good firmwide on-boarding system, and the company is expanding all the time.

Cons

The pay is not up to par with other companies in the industry. Department-specific training and on-boarding is usually done too quickly and not thoroughly enough, leading to problems down the line.

Advice to Management

Put less time into firmwide orientation and more time into department-specific orientation. Also the high turnover isn't going to change until your pay scales change.

  2. "Solid firm in principle, in practice it's different"

    Pros

    Good company culture officially, but everyone works really late and long hours, for decent (but not exceptional) pay.

    Cons

    Firm is hesitant to promote associate level staff quickly because they get a lot of value out of the positions and recognize that they can easily replace associate-level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your own employees more and maybe we wont leave!
