I worked at HBK Capital Management

Pros

Salary, Bonus, and Benefits. Excellent place to learn the hedge fund industry.

Cons

Progress in software development fell behind after the economy tanked in 2007. Went to maintenance mode only.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For CTO: you have a lot of good ideas. Work more with the developers; not just with directs.

    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.
