I have been working at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm full-time
The people at D. E. Shaw are absolutely brilliant, but also friendly and interesting and kind. The benefits and perks of the job are also amazing. They look for fit and want you to be interested and engaged and enjoying your job, and care about your global well-being. It's a really incredible place to work.
None! I really can't think of any. There is a very high bar there, but if you are offered a job, that is something you probably set for yourself and appreciate in others.
Advice to Management
Keep holding yourselves to the same high standard that you currently are! Great place to work.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm (New York, NY).
They reached out to me to ask if I wanted to interview for the position. There was a phone interview, then most-of-a-day of in-house interviews. Most went well; I interviewed with four people. One (the lead guy) came across as uninterested and arrogant. The others I liked. They never bothered to follow up, in any form, to tell me that I didn't get the job. I walked out of the in-house interviews thinking I probably hadn't, but it's so discourteous not to bother to take 25 seconds to write a rejection email. Especially as I took one of my very few vacation days to come in for the in-house interviews. Makes it hard to regret not getting an offer.
