    Great firm to work for

    I have been working at Marshall Wace North America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice people who work hard and achieve good results. Good offices and location, and with renovation and expansion underway, they'll get better. Work/life balance is good, especially for a hedge fund. The leadership are hard working, professional and accessible - not aloof like the stereotypical hedge fund managers. The leadership also pushes the firm to do significant charitable work through the Absolute Return for Kids (ARK) charity.

    Cons

    This place is results driven; relationships don't carry much weight - that won't suit everyone. They have quite restrictive web access policies that block all manner of webmail, social media and other non-work related content. IT is not great for remote working.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Marshall Wace North America in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Had a full day of meeting people. Mostly soft questions about my education and prior experience. Very friendly office. The beginning of the day comprised of them showing me the office and explaining the firm culture. I was then given a few scenarios and asked to describe how I would tackle certain problems. I had a IQ-like test to complete and several afternoon interviews with various people. This day was followed up with two, more casual phone interviews in which I talked to senior management - they asked me general questions about my background, and were curious to hear detailed info on where I saw my career going. Over all a very interesting firm, I'd recommend looking at them.
