    I worked at CEB

    Pros

    Awesome place to work
    Nice people at workplace
    Good work life balance
    Good compensation and benefits
    Overall I recommend working in CEB

    Cons

    As such there is nothing negative about the place. I worked for around an year and I loved it. I had to leave because I was relocating to some other place. If I ever return I would love to work for CEB again.
    The team I worked with was awesome and very helpful. I got lot of appreciation for my good work. and it was highly motivated. Always encouraged to use new ideas.

    Nothing except crediting salary on last working day!

    Cons

    Complete domination of your manger. Sleeping HR Departments.
    Infrastructure is very poor, In less than 1000 Sq.ft, around 50 people need to Adjust.
    No proper rest rooms, conference rooms, place to have lunch.

    Advice to Management

    If you want growth, completely revamp your HR Department, not employees.

    Pros

    Salary structure is good
    Cool environment
    Offsites to keep emploees engaged
    Location itself is an advantage.

    Cons

    These points are strictly related to Technology department:
    The work culture is not good and very stressful at times.
    No respect of employees.
    Managers are partial to there brothers/sisters etc(yes they recruit their whole family into the same project! )
    No Organisation Structure or the hierarchy
    They claim to provide the best solutions to the companies but they dont implement the same within their own organisation.
    No yearly appraisals.
    From lead to manager to Directors, everyone is selfish in their own terms.

    Overall, its not a nice place to work for a career oriented person.

    Advice to Management

    Strict HR policies should be implemented.
    Background check for Referrals should be done before hiring.
    Should be open to employee suggestions and requests
