    Fast paced with very smart people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company is made up of a very talented group of individuals. There is a lot you can learn from your peers here!

    ConsI can only say that the hours are long, the pace can be very fast and the stress can be intense but I don't think that is different than any other hedge fund.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    people are smart and pleasant to work with

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosflexible hours, great learning opportunities. The technology is catching up fast with the rest of the world, this is pretty nice for a financial company.

    ConsUpper management makes bad cost cutting decisions. Technology department is shrinking unnecessarily. People worrying about further downsize, outsourcing some of the jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA QA team is crucial to system stability which help traders to make money for the company.

    An Institutionalized Hedge Fund Experience

    Operations Associate (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGood salary and benefits, competent and motivated colleagues, relative stability compared with competitors, excellent internal training/learning opportunities, casual work environment

    ConsHas become much more institutionalized since taken over by JPM; last few years have focused far too much on cost cutting (i.e. layoffs) and "doing more with less"; camaraderie has diminished significantly; opportunities for growth almost non-existent - vast majority of moves are lateral

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop sacrificing operational quality in the name of "efficiency" and "doing more with less"; you may save some money in the short term, but the firm will suffer in the long term without the appropriate resources devoted to ops.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
