The Advisory Board Company was a very flexible and empowering place to work.

I would not recommend for women unless you're on a female-dominated and/or female-led team.

    My leadership team was very much an old boys club - a group of guys who had been working together for a long time, continued to promote one another, etc. "What is it you girls say" and "Don't worry, you're not the token girl, we have a girl last year too" are just tastes of the things that were said and tolerated. The employer needs to take complaints seriously (I did not complain but knew others who did - the only outcome was to hire more women, not promote any from within or change treatment of the women).

They are working on promoting women in sr. leadership however, people of color are visibility absent from these positions. They are working on it however, it's still pretty slow.

Compensation is below industry standard for both men and women, and they are highly aware of this. McKinsey came in in 2014 (or around this time) and provided a ton of intel & guidance on compensation, work life balance, decision making, etc. I left shortly after for graduate school, but to my knowledge they didn't raise the typical salaries. They spun their base salaries - not including bonus packages for goals - as slightly lower because of the other benefits, which typically include a relatively lavish trip once per year (for example, I was able to take my mom to Cancun for 4 days, all expenses paid by the company). In my opinion, it just depends on what your priorities are. Many, many colleagues and friends of mine went to Politico because the pay and work-life balance was much more desirable, in their opinions. I think ABC is a great place to work 1) if you are young and flexible on compensation and 2) if you can enter at Director level or above.

    For men and women who are on the senior levels (Directors and above), it appeared to me that there were many options for new parents. For example, my supervisor had a baby then worked 2-3 days per week from home. They have mothers rooms for nursing/pumping. Advisory Board has A LOT of female employees (just not in the c-suite) and while I am not a parent, I did hear good things about this aspect of the company. Additional flexibility comes as you climb the ranks, such as working remotely (another boss of mine telecommuted from Nashville). PTO is generous - 25 days even at entry level associate positions, if I recall. Given the focus on revenue, the last few weeks of each quarter are NOT flexible.

It's best to start right out of college and grow up here. They expect you to speak their language and are more likely to promote up vs. externally hire.
