Learned about good management, but did not learn abilities and skills necessary for my career path and role.

Information Security Associate (Current Employee) Westport, CT

ProsIntelligent and smart people who will question and ensure that you question your logic. Much better understanding of what good management looks like and what good management can and should deliver. The culture is very defined and novel. Because of its importance, the company works hard to ensure that like minded (culturally in agreement wise) people are there.

ConsVery slow to get changes through. Not many opportunities for growing and developing my technical abilities and skills. Felt that those abilities were stagnating. Some of the implementation of the culture leaves a bit to be desired.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Resistance is Futile

    Operations Associate (Former Employee) Westport, CT

    I worked at Bridgewater Associates as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros: - Food that you can take home for dinner - Open gym -… Cons: - The 'objective' culture is a joke. It's more like a cult where it's everyone versus you, and the managers choose what is 'objectively' right… Advice to Senior Management: - Your opinions aren't objective. - Don't take it personally when others disagree or act differently than you. - Work on developing your employees into… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
