Former Intern - Investment Analytics and Data Science

I worked at Acadian Asset Management for less than a year

Pros

I was a summer intern in 2019 and I was working in the Investment Analytics and Data team. The company has good company culture and the environment is amazing to work at, the team managers have a... very pragmatic approach to problem solving and their merits is justified from their work and work ethics. The team consists of some really experienced and amazing people and the work is cutting edge from research as well as development point of view. The overall internship experience was really amazing and it is definitely something I may brag about on my portfolio!

Cons

Honestly, I didn't find any.
