    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Collegial and casual atmosphere with great benefits (medical, dental, etc.) as well as a good work/life balance in most departments.

    Cons

    Career progression is unclear or non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to invest in all employees exhibiting potential, not just a few. Management should find a way to create growth and advancement opportunities for entry level employees so that they can cultivate talent and retain institutional knowledge. At the very least they could offer useful and directional advice based on the employees skills and interests.


  2. "Monotonous work, smart colleagues, not much room for advancement."

    I have been working at Cambridge Associates, LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, hard-working co-workers. Plenty of internal company resources within the financial services industry that allow analysts to learn easily if interested. Sponsorship for the CFA and CAIA are also a nice perk.

    Cons

    Only a decent salary with not much room for growth. Job is highly cyclical, involves doing the same thing quarter after quarter. A lot of micro-managing within the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a way to give entry-level employees more room for growth within the firm so that they will want to stay for longer.
