I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC

Pros

Excellent exposure to multiple asset classes. You get to work with extremely intelligent and knowledgeable people. Reasonable hours and a good work/life balance. Good benefits and vacation, and management is very reasonable about letting people take vacation. They also try to make sure to stay informed about employee morale.

Cons

Lack of ability to be promoted beyond a certain level without a masters degree. Very low pay relative to the rest of the finance industry. The work can be very cyclical, so there are times when there is very little to do and other times when there is way too much to do.

    Pros

    - Young, vibrant and close-knit culture with strong emphasis on teamwork
    - Dynamic working environment with highly driven, capable individuals
    - The feel of a truly global enterprise (e.g. clients, culture, employees)
    - Structured and rigorous training/mentorship program
    - Great start to your financial career: if you're looking for a broad-based learning opportunity on various asset classes (public equity, fixed income, real assets, hedge funds, private investments), or if you are undecided on where you would like to start out
    - Easy access to management regarding your development/interests/feedback
    - Exciting firm-wide developments, which always keeps things dynamic, positive and forward-looking
    - Full sponsorship for professional certifications (e.g. CFA, CIPM, CAIA)
    - Continuous learning and professional development intitiatives that are run in-house
    - Credible foundation for future career advancement (internally or externally)

    Cons

    - Main department is in the US, so Singapore might be placed on the back-burner occasionally (although this is becoming less of a occurrence)
    - Occasional long working hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Great working culture, exciting developments on the horizon and while the bonus is getting better, it still has room to grow to really retain and recognise contributions, and solidify high-performing individuals' longer-term commitment to growing the business
    - Continue perpetuating and guiding younger leaders with the great values and culture that you've set up the office with to ensure continuity
