    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Westport, CT

    I worked at Bridgewater Associates full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Lots of bright, smart people
    - Lots of perks (free lunch, snacks, drinks, company events, etc.)
    - Transparency into senior management thinking, company strategic direction, etc.
    - Direct, open, honest feedback to almost everyone can be useful in learning about yourself & others

    Cons

    - Very inefficient. Everything is a process that demands wide-spread approvals
    - Long hours (in some departments, upwards of 14-16 hour days)
    - Very restrictive non-compete with a very lengthy process to get anything approved
    - Implementation of Principles is sporadic / inconsistent, and can be "gamed"
    - Heavy-handed approach to principles & management
    - Attempts to distill an individual into a set of rankable/ratable attributes that is used for hire/fire decisions
    - Despite what others may say, pay is only average for NYC region -- probably slightly higher if you're only comparing w/in CT
    - Management that is constantly "failing"
    - Revolving door of hires

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Ray needs to go, step back & let others who know how to, run the company
    - Refocus on core strengths & cut the fat in other areas
    - Step back and reconsider implementation of principles & management and overall ROI

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
