Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates in January 2010.

Interview

The recruiter mentioned to me in advance that the company takes their "culture" very seriously -- and they will test your willingness to go along with it. Bridgewater values "honestly" as the best way to get the best results out of people -- how bad could it be, right? Well, what I didn't know was that after giving me skills test and 3 more hours of one-on-ones, there would be a "culture specialist" that would come and argue with me for another hour about how I should have told a former under-performing employee that he was an a-hole (instead of giving him constructive criticism about what he was doing wrong, concretely) because, well, it was the truth and therefore superior. We fought for a very long time about how truth is not absolute and in the eyes of the beholder. Seriously, I thought that fight - which they record, btw -- would instantly get me thrown out of the place, but they ended up calling me back after.
