Pros

The people. The comradry between the workers is amazing. Management (Consultants and above) do not support their people, so the staff gives the support.

Cons

There is no communication in the company. I know of many people who left the company, and their emails are still active, and an announcement was not sent. There is little recognition at Cambridge. Those who pass the CPA are not acknowledged, nor are daily achievements. Money is the bottomline- and that is all that matters. This past Administrative Professionals Day, the staff was given a Chipotle lunch- management did not acknowledge their contributions.

Advice to Management

I would suggest that communication be better. Both negative and positive feedback, when needed, should be given when events occur, not on a yearly basis.

    Pros

    Excellent exposure to multiple asset classes. You get to work with extremely intelligent and knowledgeable people. Reasonable hours and a good work/life balance. Good benefits and vacation, and management is very reasonable about letting people take vacation. They also try to make sure to stay informed about employee morale.

    Cons

    Lack of ability to be promoted beyond a certain level without a masters degree. Very low pay relative to the rest of the finance industry. The work can be very cyclical, so there are times when there is very little to do and other times when there is way too much to do.

    Advice to Management

    None
