Worst. Job. Ever.
Senior Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAMarch 14, 2016
Two managers run the IT Department and will literally make you feel like a worthless, useless pawn. The turnover rate at Cambridge is so high that within 6 weeks you are considered tenured. Stay away from this place, seriously, unless you're starving..
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Abusive, intolerant, ineffective managers.

Client Support Analyst (Current Employee) –  Arlington County, VAMay 31, 2016
Performance Reporting Group was an excellent place to start my career. The growth potential is unlike anything I expected. The only downside is that you start to plateau around 2 years.

Learning opportunities but limited growth
Investment Operations Associate (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAMarch 3, 2016
Excellent place to learn more about finance and investing, but a lot of this work falls outside of the core work which becomes rather mundane and repetitive once mastered.

Good work life balance but some management issues
Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAJanuary 10, 2016
Given the restructure, things can seem slightly uncoordinated. Good people to work with and a supportive culture. Some technical shortcomings for a company their size.

Good exit opportunities, not a lot of upside internally.
Associate (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VANovember 18, 2014
The company is generally slow to progress and the culture is extremely conservative. Some directors and assistant managers have no dedication to the team and it shows. this type of leadership breeds poor attitude within the department. The compensation is below average and leads to poor retention of employees. The firm tends to be pretty homogenous, which I would view as a con.

Fast-paced, high performance, and results-driven culture
Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VASeptember 18, 2012
Overall, Cambridge is a great company to work for. A great place to start you career. I worked in the Manager Information Group (MIG) which is centralized data collection and dessimination department for the firm. MIG culture is strictly professional. A very fast-paced, high performance culture and it is not for everyone. It is definitley a very productive culture. I have gained many valueable skills such as project management, business development, and building operations. MIG operated as a company within a company and treated external departments as customers. The management is suberb and will create and provide opportunities for those who are willing to step up to the plate. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people and the fact that you will learn something new every single day. The hardest thing about the job is the culture. It is not for everyone. I personally feel at home, but a high performance, results-oriented culture is not for everyone. I would like to use managerment's word to the describe the culture "it is not google'.
Pros
great collegial, academic culture. excellent benefts. superb and supportive management
Cons
compensation is not at par with industry.

SENIOR RESEARCH ASSOCIATE, REAL ASSETS (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAOctober 24, 2014
The work is interesting, and you'll be surrounded by very very smart people, but the work is a grind and the hours are kind of tough. The compensation is significantly below market, but if comp isn't an issue, this is a great place to be. And honestly, it's a great place to start your career.
