In the discretionary PM dept people are courteous and there is great support from IT. PM's don't really share ideas (to avoid over correlation) but are affable.
Your employment future is tenuous since it depends almost as much on performance of existing managers as on your own. If they do badly then you may get the axe since you are new and have no "history" with them.
Advice to Management
Way too much fixed income emphasis - if bond vol dies then so will all prospect of earning any money for clients.

Helpful (3)Accepted OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Graham Capital Management (Rowayton, CT) in June 2013.
Graham acted unethically and rescinded an employment offer; however, it was the best thing for me. Graham Capital proceeded to report losses of 5.9% in 2014 or $400 million in six funds. In a few words, "Stupid is as stupid does". Graham hires people who lack the necessary skills for the job, and they lost millions of dollars after my interview. The interview process is needlessly long and does not identify talented individuals with the skills for success. This fact is proven through their inability to consistently return profits to their investors. The Wall Street Journal in "Summertime Living Isn't Easy for Macro Funds" derided Graham for their poor investment performance in 2014 and noted the termination of numerous employees. Forrest Gump says it best: "Stupid is as Stupid Does." Graham should learn simple advice from Forrest Gump and act intelligently, thoughtfully and productively towards profitable investment. The recent Wall Street Journal press makes me more thankful that I never worked at Graham.
- Graham Capital asks many questions about family and personal life which caught me off-guard and may have contributed to the failure of hiring me. I did not elaborate or reveal personal information as I sought a professional relationship Answer Question
Graham rescinded a verbally accepted offer even with witnesses who confirmed that a verbal offer was made. I found Graham unprofessional but I was better off in the end.
