Beware: Absolutely Toxic Environment Inside

Front Office (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsThe firm definitely takes care of you in terms of monetary compensation, medical and dental benefits, and other benefits that you would expect. They want the best employees and they attract the best by paying way above their competition. They also have great catered lunches every day. Everyone raves about the food - although it's easy to gain a few pounds on the job because it is so good. They also paid for parking which apparently is a definite plus in Dallas, Texas where parking in the downtown and Uptown district is expensive and an absolute luxury to have paid for you.

ConsThe hours are absolutely terrible. Most employees get there around 6:30 or 7:30 in the morning and literally do not leave the office unless headed to an off site meeting during the day until 6 or 7 in the evening or night - remember - lunches are catered so there is no reason for you to leave during the day! Speaking of lunches, this is the downside, while you might get great, great food, you never get to see the light of day during the winter months which can be downright awful. The people are pretty arrogant there. It's one thing to be smart but a whole other thing to be boastful about it. One word sums up the HBK atmosphere - toxic.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to senior management would be to get rid of the severely political atmosphere in the office.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    While I don't regret having worked there, I can't recommend it

    Engineer (Former Employee)

    I worked at HBK Capital Management


    Pros: Money is everything at HBK and yes they will pay you well. Do a good job or your bonus will suffer and all it takes… Cons: Mandatory 15% of your base salary goes to a SEP IRA. Annual review structure changed to make it hard to even get a 3 out of… Advice to Senior Management: Let the people you hire do what you hired them to do! Listen to their ideas and take their advice. Stop the knee-jerk/ reactionary policies… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
