    Pros

    Cambridge Systematics has played an historical leadership role within public sector transportation consulting, particularly around demand modeling. Because of this, they continue to attract top tier talent, particularly in the form of freshly minted Ph.D.'s from major civil engineering programs nationwide. Thus, they do a lot of the high end, interesting work.

    Cons

    Despite these plusses, their partnership model and conservative business culture has caused them to miss major technology trends and business opportunities over the past two decades. Because of this, career opportunities for new associates are limited to a select few. Additionally, mentoring and staff development is an afterthought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hard to know what to do differently, given the current partnership culture. Cambridge remains relevant now, but may struggle to do so over the long haul without a major cultural change toward more aggressive growth.
