I have been working at Cambria Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Chance to work on some interesting public government projects in the transportation and health and human services industries.

Cons

Though there is a "non-hierarchical" style of managing and many areas remain the responsibility of the employee when it comes to offering input and ideas the power structure is opaque and top down. This makes for an unpleasant stifling experience. There was also a lack of training and a reluctance to offer constructive information to new employees.

Advice to Management

My advice would be to improve the lines of communication between employees and work to incorporate the creative contributions of temporary or at will employees. Treat all employees regardless of employment status like they are valued members and you will have better productivity returns.

    Cons

    The company is small. The support system is not the same as big consulting firms. The hours can be excessive at time. The project portfolio is litmited to a few industries...

    Advice to Management

    May consider addressing work life balance and limit the excessive hours for consultants.

    Pros

    More than any other firm I've worked with, Cambria seeks to be teammates with its clients to help solve problems. Cambria's Executives really care about their people. They allow for travel flexibility, prioritize work on challenging and innovative projects, and invest in maintaining the culture with bi-annual meetings and more. You will also get opportunities to grow in your career more at Cambria than at similar firms.

    Cons

    Cambria is trying to be a disruptive company in the government consulting market and that brings change around every corner. If you are not open to change on a regular basis, then Cambria will be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in national expansion and telling the Cambria story outside of just California.
