I have been working at WorldQuant full-time (More than a year)
- smart colleagues - challenging work, you wont get bored
- managers don't respect researchers and don't listen to their suggestions. There are two things I cant stand in a person: lack of integrity, and talking too much about things that he does not really know. Unfortunately my local GM has both. - bureaucracy, lack of transparency, many room for favoritism - very little left for new employees. Most of the pie is occupied by veterans, who are also given more privileges and have much better access to data / information. PMs have little incentive to use new alphas. New researchers ended up with very little bonus I think Igor is a good leader, however he has allowed a big gap to exist between him and the researchers, and the management who is filling the gap is incompetent. Hopefully he will realize that.
Advice to Management
- listen to the researchers, treat them with respect, they are the core of your business - make things transparent, spread information out, stop giving unfair advantages to the veterans
