    I have been working at Advisory Board full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    LOTS of PTO, LOTS of hour flexibility, and lots of WFH, very young company with a very young culture and lots of respect for work/life balance

    Cons

    Management focuses on tenure rather than experience, so even if you outperform everyone else at your level, you will have to wait for a specific month mark before even being considered for a new job or a promotion. There is also little to no career development investment in entry-level people--the only investment is in middle- to upper-management.

    Pros

    You get to work in a nice area of DC

    There are several types of entry level positions but I noticed the ones that paid less were disproportionately held by women of color.

    Pros

    Young and inclusive environment in the office. As an entry level employee, you are exposed to a lot of the decision making process among your teams, which ultimately helps gain a lot of experience. Generous PTO, work from home and benefits.

    Cons

    Promotion stage is not concrete.

    I worked at Advisory Board full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    ABC was an incredible place to work while it was growing. Great place to get your career started with good name recognition. Intelligent coworkers, managers who cared about your career trajectory, nice facilities, strong benefits including a ton of vacation time as well as hours for volunteering and working out, great work-life balance for the most part.

    Cons

    Pay has gotten a bit better in the last couple years but was extremely low especially for entry-level employee. Clear favoritism put some employees on the fast track to Director-level by age 25 while others were stuck with promotions every 1.5-2 years with no clear correlation to performance. I ultimately left due to job insecurity after the mass layoffs. When things started to go south prior to the United acquisition, it was beginning to morph into a shell of the successful company it had been and by now much of the talent and things that made it a great place to work are gone.

    I worked at Advisory Board full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most colleagues are smart, engaged, and like being at work. Well-respected in DC. Capacity to get a solid foundation for entry level staff who have ambition.

    Cons

    Pay. Employees are expected to produce high quality work for below market average compensation. Managers are entitled. Also known in DC as a turn and burn company. Lower, mid level employees are not valued.
