    This was the best dead end job I ever had. The work was easy, the benefits were good, nothing was too stressful.


    It got really boring after I learned how to do my job and there wasn't much incentive to take on additional responsibility. Not very much room for growth. The only way to move up is to have an MBA or PhD and then move into a client facing role. Only sales is really valued.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your employees more! There are a lot of smart people who feel underwhelmed. Not good to have a culture where the bare minimum is what is expected. Leads to pretty low morale.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Austin, TX) in November 2015.


    Online application, 2 phone screening interview, then a super day at the Austin office--Great people, great culture, great business model. Got back to you quickly with every next round/offer decision (heard the same day as my final interviewed)
