I have been working at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm full-time (More than a year)
The people are not only brilliant, but interesting, quirky, and kind. I feel well taken care of as an employee. D. E. Shaw also holds itself to the highest standards in everything they do: work, ethics, care for employees.
None that I can really think of! It can be a little intimidating to be around so many smart people and you have to hold yourself to the same high standard that the firm sticks to I guess but that's a good thing.
