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

    Pros

    Most people are willing to cooperate, resonable and smart. Great work/life balance. Open minded leaders with long-term perspective in enterprise development.
    The company also provides great career path for the internal employees, and many people work for the company more than 10 years, even 20 years.

    Cons

    I could not tell much about the cons, since I like this company. If I have to something, I will say that the work pace could be a little faster. Be more responsive to the market change and be more client-oriented.

    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great experience with Cambridge Associates. The firm has a very collaborative and collegiate culture. They train you extensively at the beginning. CA takes a lot of pride in the work it does for non-profit institutions, rightfully so.

    Cons

    I had a very positive experience as a Summer Analyst and during the 10 week internship did not encounter any 'cons'.

    Pros

    Cambridge is a great place to learn and grow your career. It is a very collegiate environment, and the work/life balance is very good for the finance industry.

    Cons

    There have been several leadership changes/reorgs, but the most current reorg was well thought out and seems like it will lead to a very promising future. Also, the pay and benefits are good, but not as competitive as other firms.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on keeping the culture of the firm true to how it has been in the past. Invest in your employees more, and encourage learning and growth more.
