    One year in - glad I made the move

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Atmosphere. When I interviewed with some of the investment banks the atmosphere seemed a little like a pressure-cooker. The atmosphere here is more research-oriented. It’s a good compromise between the university and industry settings.
    - The people on my team are intelligent, helpful and humble. We don’t compete with each other.
    - Quantlab is a good place to learn about quantitative finance in an applied, practical way. When I interviewed with bigger companies, the research teams seemed to have a more narrow focus. Here we see the big picture.

    ConsThere is nothing that I think is worth mentioning. I am glad I moved to Houston and accepted the offer from Quantlab.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to provide opportunities to learn new applications/skills.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsThe work is interesting. Pay is an upside and Quantlab has great people. The office is in the inner loop - which I like.

    ConsNothing comes to mind relative to cons about working at the company. I'm glad I made the move to Quantlab from a bigger firm.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It's a Major Award!

    (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsCompared 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 Senior ManagementQuantlab 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.

    An engaging company that actually fosters personal growth

    Intern (Former Employee) Houston, TX

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

    ConsNot enough performance feedback or conflict mediation

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou 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.

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