    I worked at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great culture, smart people--very smarty people. learn a lot; get much more experience and responsibility than one would get at sell-side.

    Cons

    worked there during the financial crisis so I didn't always get the information and help I needed. much more institutional and "corporate" than they want you to think.
