    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.

    I worked at CEB

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Good Salary, Transparency, Recognition, Company Values, Location, Employee Engagement Outings, Learning Experience, Knowledge boost sessions.

    Cons

    India Office: Poor Leadership in DPI, Manager busy polluting work ethics, Politics, Competing with subordinates, Biased leadership, Believe in divide and rule than team effort, Leadership not bothered about your growth but rather pulls you down so that they don't loose any asset, Don't allow time off's easily and always have illogical excuses to cancel it, whole team are run by hypocrites who have no knowledge or business oriented approach, managers steal your achievements and portray as their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage staff's growth and value leadership feedback's more often. Also, please increase the TMT departments strength from 4-5 to at least 15-20 for the 300+ staff.
