I have been working at CEB full-time (less than an year)Pros
Great team. You have the advantage of working with some of the smartest people out in the market place right now.
Good social scene.
Salary is ok based on current market trends.
Opportunity to work with C-suite execs from some of the largest global companies.Cons
Do not expect work-life balance, this is an all absorbing place of work. The company operates a very lean approach so be prepared for a heavy work load.
Very American company: the performance reviews can be violent if there is so much as a hint in under performance.Advice to ManagementAdvice
The approach is very rigid, siloed and "one size fits all". Understand that european markets are different from the US and therefore the go to market approach needs to be differentiated due to more limited scaleability.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at CEB.Interview Details
Initially a phone "screening" interview where there are standard questions including "why are you interested in working for us?", to which there seems to be only one answer, "career advancement". Based on that a F2F, CV interview with the internal recruiter is arranged at their offices in Holborn. Upon entering the building you can feel the seriousness straight away. They are very hospitable and smiley people, and give you a warm welcome which is pleasing. After the first F2F (yes, the first) the next stage is an online personality test which I did at home, I was given 3 days to submit this. Next, you are sent a Word doc. asking you to detail experiences you have had based on certain scenarios using their STAR technique. You have 5 days to submit this. The final stage is a 3 hour meeting, part 1 is where you get to meet one of the decision makers and go through your CV again and a general Q&A, part 2 is where you are given a scenario and need to plan for a sales meeting with a client to sell them a CEB membership, and the 3rd hour is the sales meeting itself with the person from part 1, acting as the aforementioned client.No OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
