Unique Experience but overall positive

Senior Research Analyst (Current Employee) Arlington, VA

Pros- Because of the timing of some department shifts I was able to have accelerated growth within the department. With that said there is room for growth alongside hard work.
- Decent work-life balance
- Pro professional designations (CFA/CAIA help financially)
- Extremely intelligent co-workers

Cons- Salary; despite numerous promotions the ceiling for salary is not comparable to others in the area. Not to say you can't make a decent living, it's just not the same regarding salary level.
- Communication between departments is limited, despite groups working together.
- Consultant-first attitude leads to disdain towards consultants.
- Too focused on low-turnover. Many employees skate by without really putting in the hours of others, but a refusal by management to cut ties leads to complacency and leads to bad work ethic going unpunished.

Advice to Senior Management- Re-evaluate how you view terminating employees. Your view towards retaining talent is good, but you allow complacency with tenured individuals who do not hold their weight.

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

    Good Company, Terrible Office/managers - Applies to Arlington - Wilson office

    Associate/Analyst (Former Employee) Arlington, VA

    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time for more than a year
