Commercial Customer Service Representative

What’s the best way to have a lack of compensation and incentive conversation in your department? I went above and beyond for years doing extra work, organizations etc and nothing has been reflected in pay. I thought my 5 year was going to finally show something but it did not. I’ve inquired about pay but it’s gotten nowhere.

    Pros

    The people, work life balance, and overall firm culture are wonderful.

    Cons

    It’s located in Greenwich, so I have to commute from NYC (or live in Stamford)

      Average Interview
      Application

      I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at AQR Capital Management (Bengaluru) in Aug 2023

      Interview

      Ghosted! I was contacted by the company HR directly for the job opportunity for Bengaluru office. The job was for a full stack role in their operations department and four rounds of deep techinical discussions happened with US based panel for about 1.5 hours each along with a two hour online assessment. Discussions were pretty positive but ultimately I didn't hear back and was ghosted. Ultimate waste of time.

    Expected returns on traditional assets are lower than their historical averages, yet the same is not true for risks. Setting expectations — for investors, boards, and other stakeholders — may be more important today than ever. We provide a framework to set expectations on downside risk, one that can be used for a range of assets, portfolios, and investment decisions. We show that diversification and liquidity may be even more valuable than conventional risk-return statistics suggest: https://bit.ly/3A2Q92n

    In his latest, Cliff stresses why the proper treatment of shorting matters for the ultimate goal of responsible investing: to effect change. However, confusion abounds about the use of shorting in an ESG context. When it comes to calculating a portfolio’s ESG score, we’ve heard arguments ranging from "ignore the shorts” to “net them against longs,” and, to bring it to an illogical extreme, “pretend the shorts are actually longs.” Cliff explains why it is critical that shorts be properly accounted for: https://bit.ly/3toIdWw
