I worked at Quantlab Financial full-time

Pros

The Quantlab employees have put in their 10000 hours to mastery. Out of a nondescript office in Houston they successfully compete against the best Wall Street has to offer. They are a collegiate group who spend time together both at work and play. Employment is stable with very low turn-over. A rigorous hiring process helps contribute to that stability. The work environment is a cross between academic research and high-tech. In what is typically a very demanding industry Quantlab is as relaxed as you choose, yet with greater effort come greater rewards.

Cons

Compared to a larger corporate environment (1000's of employees) there are fewer opportunities to change careers and/or your immediate management within the firm. This is common in even the larger proprietary firms. Quantlab is continuing to develop, and I expect this aspect to change with time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quantlab senior management have been successful in a very competitive business environment. They have worked hard and achieved great things. They are as successful as Chicago firms twice their size. I wish them all the luck and continued success.

    I worked at Quantlab Financial as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Persistent and concise technical feedback, relaxed yet intellectually stimulating atmosphere, lenient work schedule, excellent work/life balance, many recreational perks, fantastic people to work with

    Cons

    Not enough performance feedback or conflict mediation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should spend a little more time letting your interns know if you think they are meeting expectations. It's a necessary evil, but I think one that can be performed without sacrificing their intellectual autonomy.

    I worked at Quantlab Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely smart and talented team. An outstanding organization with many opportunities. Company cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Not a lot of upward movement, position-wise, but if titles are unimportant then not a problem. Every position has learning and project advancement.
