Pros: young coworkers, great compensation/incentives if you overperform
Cons: hard to maintain work/life balance, constant pressure to perform, managers inexperienced, overly competitive atmosphere, subjective promotion requirements
While at first I was enamoured with CEB's young, fun atmosphere with frequent happy hours, after about two years, I've discovered that it might not be the place for me.
If you are motivated by micromanagement, humiliation in front of your peers if you're underperforming, and constant pressure to do well, CEB is definitely the place for you.
If you – more... are motivated by fairness and pride in your own hard work, it might not be.
Sales is very much a "what have you done for me now" career for those who can deal with constant pressure. If that's the career for you, CEB is definitely the best company to work for. – less
