I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time
Good exposure to investment world. Could be worth the major systemic issues in the department to gain exposure. Some people move on to other parts of the company which seem like much better opportunities. Some people are able to get their foot in the door in really great investment firms after some experience in MIG. Coworkers generally supportive, hardworking, nice people.
Management is inexperienced and the department never hits goals. In spite of unrealistic expectations, lack of success is always blamed on employees. Well-meaning middle management, but lack of experience causes whole department to suffer. Exceptionally outdated technology. Micro management to the extreme. You'll have the worst combination of boredom at doing repetitive tasks and stress at the amount you're expected to hit. As previous reviewers have mentioned, management takes no effort to actually implement changes. Exceptionally poor commitment/ care for workplace diversity.
Advice to Management
Dismantle management structure and entirely rebuild.
Cambridge has great people and I learned a lot working there.
I was old and everyone I worked with was pretty young

Great exposure to investment industry, defined career paths, great people
Mediocre pay, tedious work, long hours during peak reporting, not a lot of opportunity to transfer between departments
Advice to Management
Continue to invest in your people and think of more professional development opportunities

I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (More than a year)
Operational department had good pay and benefits for the skills and level of work
Very easy to only work 40 hours a week
Company support in exams such as the CFA, CIPM, etc
Coworkers are great
Management has unclear priorities, communication, and is only looking for individuals who keep their heads down and do what they are told
Numerous attempts at projects to overhaul the department that have all failed
Repetitive and tedious work
Good work life balance.
Sponsorship for professional certificates like CFA
No transferable skills. Find it a struggle looking for external opportunities.
Management is made up of people who are very new in their careers. In banks AVP are given to those who have been working in the industry for 5 years or so. Here you could become an assistant managers with a few years of experience. Management team really lacks experience.
High attrition rate. As a result the team is relatively new and lack working experience.
Great people to work with in an entry-level role.
No room to grow. Rewards are not monetary. Rewards equals more work and responsibility.

Managers were helpful and supportive. My colleagues were a great group of people I had the privileged to work with. Company's annual picnic was an added bonus.
Documentation work can be routine and sometimes tedious.
Smart people, good work life balance.
Boring work, hard to move up.
Both my managers were nice. They were both fired.
In the 2+ years I worked there, there were 3 massive groups of lay offs, including my own. They also literally removed our opportunity to advance.
