    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume online and received a call within a day or two. The initial phone interview was very easy and lasted about 15 minutes. I mostly spoke about time management, teamwork, time sensitivity of data and how these concepts related to my past work experience. I was invited to the open house interview, which like the first one was mostly resume and personality based questions. The interviews are very easy be comfortable and stress your high work ethic, your ability to work with teams and your commitment to finishing projects. Research MIG before you apply.

    Junior Investment Operations Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Campus recruitment --> Phone screening --> On-site Interview "Super Day" --> Offer

    The on-site interview is basically just 3 back-to-back behavioral interviews, 1 case interview, and 1 lunch (basically another interview). It was a stressful 3 hours, but very rewarding as well. If you prepared for this interview very well, then I would say you are probably ready for many other interviews as well.

    Software Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had my primary interview on campus. The primary interview was mostly questions about my resume and generic questions such as "tell me about yourself", "your weaknesses/strengths", etc. Just as you would expect a typical interview to go. The interviewers were very nice and cordial and the interview itself was very fun for me.

    I got through to the second round interview which was held at their VA office and was conducted by a senior software developer and another software developer. They asked more in depth questions about the languages I knew that were present on my resume. Asked about multi-threading, ruby, java, etc. Most of the questions were geared toward technical things. They asked a couple of questions about protected vs. static vs. private. All in all, the interview process was very relaxed but I couldn't get a read on their expressions. I didn't know how I was doing on the interview.

    Overall, it was a great experience and had a lot of fun interviewing with Cambridge Associates for an internship position.

    HR is very efficient.
