    I worked at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation for a liberal arts major.
    Very smart, interesting coworkers.
    Great benefits and perks---you don't appreciate free snacks, 100% paid health, 401K matching and gym memberships until you leave!!

    Cons

    Managers aren't always the best people managers, just someone who's been there for a while and good at the other parts of their job.
    Much more standard corporate than it used to be.

    Interview Details

    On-campus Hiring. I have an on-campus interview. The interviewer is a really nice guy. He just went through my resume, and ask some behavior questions. Nothing is special. Just prepare your stories and prepare for behavior questions. I believe the most important thing is whether your major matches the position you applied.
