I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time

Pros

Great people, a broad learning knowledge; people are willing to help out; superiors are super friendly and want to help; great if you know 100% that you want to get an MBA as they have great connections

Cons

Terrible salary; job gets repetitive; expect to stay a long time. I always think Cambridge would be a great place to do an internship because you learn so much about so many different types of investing. The downside, is that it does not teach you the necessary skills to do a lot of this type of investing (e.g. Hedge Funds or Private Equity or Venture Capital)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase pay/incentives; Don't stick to the job progression guidelines so rigidly

    Pros

    Good people
    Great balance
    Diversity of clients
    Interesting topics to cover

    Cons

    Not too tech savvy
    Clients ultimately make their own decisions
    Billable hours (at least you have to keep track of them)
    Bureaucratic for a client-services business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mandate innovation, best practices and true thought leadership from the top down, rather than merely repurposing models and exhibits for various clients with different titles as cost/time effectively as possible.

    I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I'm very curious to see where this company is in 3-4 years. They are doing a lot of internal software development and are expanding their OCIO segment. Great company that listens to employees and helps them get to where they want to go from a career standpoint. Entry-level pay is not competitive but it definitely gets better as you are increasingly able to add more value to the business. Great boss, great colleagues, and great location. It truly is a very team-oriented environment.

    Cons

    I can see other folks in different positions within the company having some issues, but as it pertains to my job I really have a hard time coming up with cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They know what they are doing and my advice is probably not super beneficial.
