You either "get it" or you don't
Analyst (Former Employee) – Minnesota – January 4, 2019
Cambria offered me the culture of excellence that I wanted. However, my experience was that the mentality is that you need to be on your A++++ game from the minute you walk in the door, or you're not going to make it for long. There is little interest in training (even though people have all the time in the world to do their personal business). Bottom line is that you either "get it" right away and can run with the wolves, or you get left behind.
I worked for the Finance office, and to be fair, I think that the new CFO is going to bring a lot of positive changes to the culture in that department, including better work/life flexibility and tolerance for mistakes made with good intentions. However, I wasn't able to stay long enough to experience those positive changes.
My perception of the people around me was that there was an odd dichotomy: one group was categorically approachable, warm tolerant, encouraging etc, and the other group was just the opposite: cold, stuffy, impatient and perfectionistic. Never before have I experienced such wide extremes in the overall culture.
Overall: if you're top of the class, it's a great place. Otherwise, it might be best to keep looking.
Striving for Excellence. Great pay and very good benefits.
You're expected to be an expert from day one.
