I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Smart, hard-working co-workers. Plenty of internal company resources within the financial services industry that allow analysts to learn easily if interested. Sponsorship for the CFA and CAIA are also a nice perk.

Cons

Only a decent salary with not much room for growth. Job is highly cyclical, involves doing the same thing quarter after quarter. A lot of micro-managing within the firm.

Advice to Management

Need to find a way to give entry-level employees more room for growth within the firm so that they will want to stay for longer.

    I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good health plan, casual atmosphere. Parking and subsidized metro. Creature comforts attended to.

    Cons

    Non-competitive salary, limited promotion potential, biased compensation structure. Demoralizing in expectations at times. Little to no interaction among departments - very compartmentalized organization. Becoming much more a company of isolated groups. Core support groups only in Boston office - limits some growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger emphasis on support staff could result in better work quality and loyalty and drive to enhance/improve processes.

    Pros

    Collegial environment where you will quickly like your coworkers and not hate coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    Ceilings are apparent if you work in certain groups and the company as a whole is pretty siloed.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that in order to build for the future, you have to start with the people.
