    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's a decent job if you're fresh out of college. The pay is nothing special, but it will pay your bills. No real chance for upward mobility unless you get an MBA. Generally recruits undergraduates out of liberal arts colleges, very Caucasian heavy office with young guys and gals who recruit people who are similar to themselves, and thus the fraternal like culture.

    Cons

    No real diversity, it would be nice to talk to a colleague who isn't stuck in the past about they glory days of Friday nights on campus.

    Pay isn't too good

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some new fresh blood from different backgrounds besides your typical fraternity/sorority brother or sister.

    Pros

    - The consultants are smart, hard working, and dedicated to C|A's cause.
    - The firm is well respected; a thought leader within the pension/endowment space.
    - Strong work ethic exhibited throughout the firm.
    - Generous earned time off.
    - Fellow analysts are pretty cool.

    Cons

    - Management in PRG/MIG is extreme in their views.
    - Limited internal mobility both within the department and at the firm.
    - Monotonous work and underpaid for extreme work hours.
    - Little to no recognition for work being done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to firm wide management: take a second look at how the Wilson office employees are managed.
    Open internal opportunities to all employees.
    Focus more on development and less on keeping the norm.

    Doesn't Recommend
