The Company:

The Advisory Board Company (NASDAQ: ABCO) is a global researchconsulting, and technology firm helping hospital and university executives to better serve patients and students. They provide strategic guidance, actionable insights, web-based software solutions, and comprehensive implementation and management services. They combine the analytical, managerial, and technological expertise of its 2,000+ employees around the world with insights from the on-the-ground experience of their network of 125,000 leaders at 3,200 health care and higher education member organizations to find solutions to their partners’ most pressing challenges.

The current opportunity is based in Washington DC.


About the Position:

Strategic Research Analysts work in teams on custom research engagements to address key challenges or opportunities facing specific hospital members.  Building on the Advisory Board’s vast knowledge and expertise, engagement teams provide strategic guidance to directly support hospital decision-making.  Recent engagements have focused on the following topics: evaluating market differentiation tactics for cardiac surgery, defining programmatic growth platforms for stroke care, crafting a strategic vision for a digestive health center, designing a framework to better conceptualize cancer care pathways, and launching a revenue growth strategy for orthopedic services.  Analysts are actively involved throughout the engagement cycle—from conception, to research interviews, to analysis and creation of presentation materials. Working in teams provides analysts the opportunity to learn from peers and to take on more challenging responsibilities as they develop in their role.


Analyst Responsibilities:

  • Lead custom research intended to solve hospital problems related to strategic planning and growth

  • Document and analyze findings from primary and secondary research
  • Reduce member challenges to root cause problems
  • Identify and critique best practice strategies and solutions
  • Develop innovative frameworks for presentation of findings
  • Contribute to creation of presentation materials

As analysts become more experienced, they assume broader responsibilities, including management of member relationships, providing “thought leadership” and creativity, and serving as “in-house experts” on various topics.

The analyst position offers significant growth and rapid promotion potential, as well as opportunities to take on other roles within our growing firm. The Advisory Board is a true meritocracy, with pace of advancement within the firm based on an analyst’s performance, capabilities and ambition.

    • Conducting primary and secondary research
    • Creating slides in Microsoft Power Point
    • Conducting database analytics in Excel
    • Demonstrated interest in health care


Ideal Qualifications:

  • Experience managing discrete projects independently with ability to manage multiple deadlines simultaneously
  • Proven ability to communicate effectively with senior executives, in both oral and written formats

  • Experience with creative, solution-oriented problem solving
  • Experience working on the clinical or business sides of health care

Benefits: Consistent with their belief that their employees are their most valuable resource, The Advisory Board Company offers a competitive benefits package, including a comprehensive health plan, a 401(k) plan, an Employee Stock Purchase Plan, a daytime leave policy for community service, a medical flexible spending account, and additional attractive benefits.
