I received an email that the person in charge of a big company's imprint is taking my proposal to the review board.  What does this mean?  Is there a book or great website that explains how things work at a literary agency or publishing company?

It depends on the company. Have you run them through Predators and Editors? http://pred-ed.com/

 

If they are a legit company, then it's a good thing. Sit tight and see what happens. If they come back and ask you to invest money in your own book, RUN!
