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

Pros

Yes, it is a very "collegial environment" like everyone says.

Cons

You may come into the industry with skills, but they wont be used. You may have hopes and desires, but these will be dashed. The only skill you develop is soft skills. Sure, there's value in soft skills. But why not just go into motivational speaking or HR? Why try your hand at finance?

You will learn virtually nothing at this firm and you will leave with few skills and experience to cite than when you began the job.

Money--let's be honest, it's one of the main reasons we enter into finance. Money, money, money. Cambridge will give you none of it. Pay is sub-standard (though it is in line with the skills required to execute the job).

If you decide to join Cambridge, develop an exit strategy from day one. Get in for a year, get the name on your resume, then make your entry into real finance--not some cush job that can be completed by a high schooler.

Advice to Management

I wouldn't even know where to begin.
