    One year in - glad I made the move

    I have been working at Quantlab Financial (more than an year)

    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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide opportunities to learn new applications/skills.

    I have been working at Quantlab Financial

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind relative to cons about working at the company. I'm glad I made the move to Quantlab from a bigger firm.

    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 an 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.
