Great Firm

Summer Consulting Associate (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC as an intern for less than a year

ProsI had a great experience with Cambridge Associates. The firm has a very collaborative and collegiate culture. They train you extensively at the beginning. CA takes a lot of pride in the work it does for non-profit institutions, rightfully so.

ConsI had a very positive experience as a Summer Analyst and during the 10 week internship did not encounter any 'cons'.

Great working environment, Great people

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time for more than a year

ProsMost people are willing to cooperate, resonable and smart. Great work/life balance. Open minded leaders with long-term perspective in enterprise development.
The company also provides great career path for the internal employees, and many people work for the company more than 10 years, even 20 years.

ConsI could not tell much about the cons, since I like this company. If I have to something, I will say that the work pace could be a little faster. Be more responsive to the market change and be more client-oriented.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
