    Junior Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with HR. Nothing difficult, 30 minutes or so.

    Had interviews at the office after the first round. Most questions were behavioral questions and were quite similar. Found myself repeating my answers with different interviewers but I'm guessing they were trying to ensure consistency in the answers they were getting. Had a presentation about the company for a clearer understanding of the role and how the department fits into the company. Also had a writing sample- again, nothing difficult.

    Operations Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    Single on-campus interview, with single interviewer (manager). The interviewer came across as intentionally abrasive. There were no case studies or technical questions, just general background and interest questions. The interviewer could not readily explain the position for which they were interviewing candidates. Follow-ups to the interview were sophomoric and opaque.

    QA Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Arlington, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied through listing on the school career center website and was contacted a few weeks later by email to schedule a phone interview. The initial phone interview was with a QA engineer with whom I walked through my resume. The interviewer also answered my questions about the company at the end of the interview. I was then contacted by email to schedule a final round interview by phone. During that final interview I was asked technical questions, what I knew about testing, and they also asked me some brainteaser questions. A few weeks later they called and emailed me with an offer. The interviewers were pretty friendly and brainstormed along with me while I was thinking about the solution to the brainteaser questions.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online and got a phone call two days later. The HR rep set up an informational phone interview. The questions were very basic and included a review of my resume. Then I was invited to interview on-site. They did not pay for travel or rooming expenses. The on-site interview consisted of two group presentations and three one-on-one interviews with questions ranging from basic resume information to simple finance/capital markets questions.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview went very well. Met 3 different people for in person interviews. 2 of the 3 interviewers were absolutely terrible and extremely arrogant. Asked boring standard questions i.e. What is your biggest weakness?

    Interview Questions

    The company environment seemed arrogant and saw little to no room for growth.
