    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cambridge was great to work with for placement with a local document review company, despite their great distance (Atlanta to St. Louis).

    Cons

    Cambridge didn't contact me with the next document review that apparently became available, despite my potential availability.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to maintain and use lists of previous reviewers.

    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC as an intern

    Pros

    Great Work, not a traditional intern experience because they don't baby you and give you actual work.

    Cons

    Very Conservative, old culture. Old technologies. Not many young people

    Advice to Management

    Update technologies

    I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gained lots of work experience as to how business actually works. Was responsible for the same tasks as many full time employees which made me feel like I was actually contributing to the company.

    Cons

    Has an old school business approach because of their largely older base of employees, though they are actively trying to improve this.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is a positive. Plenty of resources and opportunity available to you, but you will need to reach out and take them. Movement within the company is common if you find another business line that interests you more.

    Cons

    Progression is very much "track" oriented.
