I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very easy work - could be done by 8th grader

Cons

Skills learned apply only to company and don't transfer to other companies or positions unless data-entry is a career aspiration. People are promoted based on office politics and not merit Micro-managing is extremely prevalent Department is known as a "sweat-shop" to competing firms/investment firms Low Salary and minimal bonuses Work is mind-numbing and could be done by a grade school graduate

Advice to Management

Reevaluate usefulness of the department

    Pros

    I've found my time at Cambridge to be incredibly rewarding thus far. Management is incredibly supportive and invested in your professional growth and development. The department that I work in has a very team-based, collegial atmosphere. People are very positive, upbeat, and willing to lend a hand. Lastly, the firm is a true meritocracy and hard work is always rewarded.

    Cons

    Given the nature of the finance industry, occasionally long hours are required. When you start out, you're not given too much paid vacation, but I believe by industry standards it is fairly generous.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the level of support and guidance you offer. This support coupled with the transparency provided is greatly appreciated.

    Pros

    work-life balance friendly, non-competitive atmosphere employee-focused environment room for advancement fair salary especially considering time-off up to 3 days/week telecommuting in IT dept

    Cons

    not a place for driven, workaholic types - work pace would be too slow, is not cutting edge IT development. company is becoming more impersonal as it expands. job satisfaction depends on department. entry-level research jobs are monotonous, sometimes have long hours. company is a little conservative. a bit of "this is the way it's always been done" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work!
