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

Pros

Their benefits are okay. But salary is a joke so that negates this Pro.

Cons

There are no exit opportunities if you work in the data/performance departments. Your only out is an internal transfer (where you'll still starve on the salary they pay) or getting a project management job (which will likely be unrelated to finance). I guess you can work at a fund of funds--but everyone knows that's a third-rate option. I made a fatal mistake accepting a position at this firm.

Advice to Management

Money. Stop starving your employees with your shoe-string budgets and stop adding insult to injury by providing employees with little to no marketable skills after they give you years of essentially free labor.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time

    Pros

    Great people, a broad learning knowledge; people are willing to help out; superiors are super friendly and want to help; great if you know 100% that you want to get an MBA as they have great connections

    Cons

    Terrible salary; job gets repetitive; expect to stay a long time. I always think Cambridge would be a great place to do an internship because you learn so much about so many different types of investing. The downside, is that it does not teach you the necessary skills to do a lot of this type of investing (e.g. Hedge Funds or Private Equity or Venture Capital)

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay/incentives; Don't stick to the job progression guidelines so rigidly
