Come for the Money

Don't come here unless they made you a huge offer that you can't refuse. Talent and hard work doesn't always pay off here. There are a lot of politics going on and multiple teams working on things that are related.

Team Placement Matters

Your success is based on if you are paired off with the correct manager. There is a lot of luck involved to succeed there. I've seen very talented people with the wrong match having a bad time there. Talent and hard work doesn't always pay off.

Challenging and opportunity to work with smart people

Lots of smart people work here, the expectation to excel is very high. However the company strongly lacks a collaborative culture and communication tend to be lacking. Limited room for internal growth.

Pros

Free meals, snacks

Cons

Work life balance, culture

Extremely competitive firm with little respect for its employees and their families

Never again. I was warned before agreeing to stay onboard following citadel's acquisition of our prior firm. It is not a healthy culture, and the work environment is toxic.

Incredible Firm

One of the best hedge funds out there. Everyone is incredibly intelligent and talented. You are expected to perform and you are rewarded / compensated highly for performance. Incredibly difficult firm to get into.

90% boring, 10% scary, 100% no regrets

Worked as a guard for 5 years, I saw almost everything there was to see in that career. From the long boring nights watching the dust blow, to the excitement of taking down a drunken party goer who thought he was too tough to listen to security guards. I've worked alone, in a group, or paired up. The men and women I worked with were all decent and hard working people. My boss was a fair and understanding man who helped make the office feel like a safe place to relax and even discuss issues with the job. If it wasn't for my decision to move, I'd still be working there right now.

Pros

flexible hours, understanding of emergencies, easy to talk to managment.

Cons

long hours overnight, no batrooms, dealing with less than reputable members of the public
