    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    I interviewed for the Investment Associates position. I sent in a resume and cover letter and then was placed for an on-campus interview. The on-campus interview was fine, mostly behavioral questions with one case study. I was then selected for a super-day interview. I was told that the super day would be a few one on ones and then two case studies. However, almost al of the rounds of interviews ended up being groups. The questions all were fine - about what I expected them to be. The super day was concluded by going to a lunch with two other individuals, who were not on the recruiting team.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC (Boston, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with one of the recruiters. She asked a lot of questions about my background, work experience and about the company. Be prepared and do a lot of research on the company background, mission, goals and strategies. It was a 30 minutes phone call and it ended when she found out I need sponsorship later. No internship if you need sponsorship in the future. It is just their company rules.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The first round was a phone interview and the second round involved a face-to-face interview with other investment associates and a case study. The interviews with the associates mainly involved behavioral questions concerning how well you would "fit" into the firm. The case study was a technical exercise that involved the analysis of many graphs and financial data and will be pretty daunting for those who lack financial background.
