    I have been working at DC Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent and friendly people, stimulating quantitative problems, team-based approach to investing, great way to build skills across many disciplines (data science, finance, energy). Self-driven workplan teaches you to really think critically and own the analysis. Very little busy-work. Flat structure, approachable managers, fair opportunities to present to upper management and make impactful change

    Cons

    High turnover rate means loss of institutional knowledge, less room for skill development after 3-4 years, long commute if you want to live downtown

    Advice to Management

    Consider quality of life changes that could increase retention.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DC Energy.

    Interview

    I did a resume drop through my schools career services website and heard back within two weeks. The first round interview was a short case interview and the second round was the next day and included two interviews each lasting around forty-five to fifty-five minutes. They asked questions based on information they gave you and had one question about a computer simulation.
