I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Smart, caring coworkers and supervisors. Some very smart consultants. Interesting work with high profile clients. Opportunity to learn about all asset classes through due diligence on top investment managers, research, etc. Great brand recognition. As an associate you can get involved in a variety of auxiliary functions such as marketing, recruiting, etc.

Cons

Some groups can be difficult to work with. Large company where change is slow to implement. Average starting salaries, but lower than industry raises and bonus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to change the status quo. Update technology resources. Start planning for the future and passing more shares of ownership to the MDs.

    Do not give up on the model of tapping talent for projects for the right employee it can be very empowering. Do continue to gather feedback on interests and have employees drive career path, but acknowledge when some individuals need the request or extra push.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA

    I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Collegial and casual atmosphere with great benefits (medical, dental, etc.) as well as a good work/life balance in most departments.

    Cons

    Career progression is unclear or non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time to invest in all employees exhibiting potential, not just a few. Management should find a way to create growth and advancement opportunities for entry level employees so that they can cultivate talent and retain institutional knowledge. At the very least they could offer useful and directional advice based on the employees skills and interests.
