CA hires candidates from a variety of backgrounds in order to preserve a diversity of thought within the firm. You will have the opportunity to work with experienced investment professionals while working in a dynamic and collaborative team environment where intellectual curiosity and thought leadership is both encouraged and valued.
Professional Development & Training
New Investment Directors from every office participate in a two week orientation program in Boston that introduces them to the firm’s groups, clients and culture. Throughout the first four years of employment there is also continuing curriculum on topics including technical investment content, communications coaching, and leadership skills.
Additionally, much of the training happens on-the-job. New Investment Directors are assigned an advisor to assist with on-the-job training and to provide guidance. Once a year CA holds an Investment Director conference, where directors from all offices gather offsite for several days to discuss important investment, client, and firm issues.
Lastly, all employees are formally evaluated as part of the firm’s semi-annual Performance Review Process, which includes input from peers and managers.
