    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work-life balance was great.

    Cons

    Room for growth within a position and within the company is limited, and mentors are scarce.

    Improve communications between consultants and the rest of the firm; many consultants seem to view other operations within the company as beneath them.

    Pros

    Great entry-level job with industry leader. Provides amazing foundation for career in financial services. Consistently impressed with colleagues. Young and energetic work environment with opportunity to take immediate ownership of relationships.

    Cons

    Growth is limited and long-term prospects within department were nonexistent. Pay should be raised to be in line with similarly competitive jobs in the industry and other comparable departments.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recruit from top colleges. Department has improved greatly over the past several years. The department continues to send analysts to elite business programs and roles at other highly regarded companies as exit opportunities.
