Pros

Great people and great learning experience. Strong culture and ability to learn a lot from very smart and accomplished people. Very collegial and great opportunities down the line for investment related jobs and business school.

Cons

Compensation is lower than average, however this is expected as work-life balance was stronger than many peers in similar roles at other investment related companies. Room for advancement is limited without an MBA or CFA.

  1. Associate Position - Menlo Park, CA

    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC

    Pros

    For a recent college grad the associate position will give you a nice set of professional skills (client management, teamwork, and learning how to prioritize and meet deadlines ). If you work hard and gain the respect of managers, you will have more freedom to spend time doing research & advisory in asset classes that interest you the most.

    Cons

    The training program in satellite offices should be strengthened. Cambridge needs to provide better training on the nuances of the asset classes, more advanced modeling skills and all in all empower them to be more active contributors to client advisory. Especially if CA is going to continue to recruit students with non-finance backgrounds.

    Advice to Management

    While the starting salary for an associate is fine, year one and two raises need to bring salary to levels commensurate with other top tier consulting firms. This would meaningfully improve associate satisfaction and retention.

  2. Great firm
