    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work / life balance with opportunities to learn a lot about portfolio management quickly.

    Cons

    There is a ceiling on how high you can move up and the pay grades by department are a little skewed. Like most other finance jobs, associates do the leg work and don't get recognized for it.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize young employees better so that you retain talent longer. Provide more career opportunities into middle management positions.


  2. Smart colleagues, changing department with lots of opportunities, but long and unpredictable hours detract from job

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

    Pros

    This is a changing firm and department with a relatively new management team (about a year tenure). The new management team is dedicated to the department and has put PRG on the right track. Employee engagement increased significantly with the new management team, which I felt was a big positive. Because of the changes there are lots of opportunities within the department to get noticed and grow. If you put yourself out there and get involved, then the managing team will notice you and reward you for your dedication. Colleagues are smart, and you get access to a lot of great research, as well as access to hedge fund and long-only managers. I think this is a good place for an entry level individual, as you will learn valuable skills and get access to really smart people.

    Cons

    The hours can be long and unpredictable, especially around 7-12th business days each month, depending on your client load. Also the ability to move elsewhere in the company isn't clear. If you are not entry level and have a few years of work experience, the growth potential is not as great as fresh out of college.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the plan to improve the department and keep engaging employees.
