    I have been working at HBK Capital Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - worked with really smart people
    - small company work environment with big company pockets
    - great benefits : healthcare + free breakfast/lunch/snacks/drinks/beer (on fridays)
    - suprising number of staff have been here longer than +5 years
    - great work life balance ... especially when compared to working IB in a place like NYC

    Cons

    - career growth is not via titles/positions but in expanded responsibility and increased pay (in case you're someone who likes to get new shiny titles every year, this place might not be for you)
    - gained 10 pounds in my first year thanks to all the free food ... caveat emptor!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - might be interesting to shake things up some and let (technology) staff spend 6 month 'embeds' in alternate teams to promote more cross pollination between teams.

    I worked at HBK Capital Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great environment. No titles and room to grow IF you take initiative. They will not worry about your future with them but, great place if you know what you want.

    Cons

    They try to treat you like family but at the end of the day they only care about the money going into their pockets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread the money around a little more and when in doubt do the right thing.
