"Associate Position - Menlo Park, CA"

Pros

For a recent college grad the associate position will give you a nice set of professional skills (client management, teamwork, and learning how to prioritize and meet deadlines ). If you work hard and gain the respect of managers, you will have more freedom to spend time doing research & advisory in asset classes that interest you the most.

Cons

The training program in satellite offices should be strengthened. Cambridge needs to provide better training on the nuances of the asset classes, more advanced modeling skills and all in all empower them to be more active contributors to client advisory. Especially if CA is going to continue to recruit students with non-finance backgrounds.

Advice to Management

While the starting salary for an associate is fine, year one and two raises need to bring salary to levels commensurate with other top tier consulting firms. This would meaningfully improve associate satisfaction and retention.
