Current Employee - Research Associate in Arlington, VA

I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC

Pros

+ Amazing room to grow if you're interested --> we house some of the most interesting (and confidential) information in the industry. We have access to EVERYTHING.
+ Wonderful department culture --> employees in my department have a fantastic outlook, are very team oriented, and senior management does an incredible job.
+ Room to grow if you put in the work --> I was promoted in less than a year because I take on extra work and am always willing to go the extra mile. Effort is truly rewarded.
+ Great benefits --> 4 weeks off after 1 year with the company
+ Non-exempt position --> starting January 1st, 2012, as a Junior RA or Research Associate, you earn time and a half for all overtime.

Cons

There is some monotonous work involved in these positions, but it lessens as you get further in to your role. Also, long(er) hours are no stranger to me, but it's not excessive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In my department, we have some fantastic senior managers that we work with. My only advice is to make sure that we can take on everything that we commit to, because we take on an extraordinary amount of work and sometimes it leads to pretty crazy hours.

    Communications to middle management needs to improve, not enough networking events or opportunities so these future leaders can forge realationships

    Continuing Ed benefits could be better
