    I worked at D. E. Shaw India full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free Food, Cab Service, In-office Gym and cab service. People stick around mostly due to the high salary

    Cons

    Extremely bad if you are looking for technical challanges. Also upper management in India is filled with politics. If you are not in politics you won't grow. Off late people have start leaving despite the high salary because good people don't stand dirty politics. Hence the leftovers would create an even dirty environment in India for sure. Very little scope to move across teams/projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a complete change of the upper management
