    I worked at AQR Capital Management (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is easy to criticize an organization when you don't have another experiences to compare it to. I however, do and my advice to many looking at AQR is that it is unique and special. Not perfect, but one of my best experiences.

    I left six months ago to join another fund and I have to say I am struggling; the openness I experienced at AQR and the sheer brain capacity is not present in my current role.

    THE GRASS ISN'T ALWAYS GREENER.....

    Cons

    Facilities are Poor, People are crammed into spaces and we shuffle the deck a lot to fit people. Longer term planning is in order and recognize Greenwich is a challenge for city commuters....

    Pros

    Free breakfast. Free lunch. Good location. Good facilities. Smart people. Huge AUM.

    Cons

    Unclear, ill-defined career path. Some people in positions of power lack management skills, even if they possess business acumen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good people and then get out of their way. Show appreciation for the efforts of your employees: a little can go a long way.
