    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC (less than a year)

    Pros

    Their benefits are okay. But salary is a joke so that negates this Pro.

    Cons

    There are no exit opportunities if you work in the data/performance departments. Your only out is an internal transfer (where you'll still starve on the salary they pay) or getting a project management job (which will likely be unrelated to finance). I guess you can work at a fund of funds--but everyone knows that's a third-rate option. I made a fatal mistake accepting a position at this firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Money. Stop starving your employees with your shoe-string budgets and stop adding insult to injury by providing employees with little to no marketable skills after they give you years of essentially free labor.
