    Pros

    AQR is a great company, and working there was a wonderful experience. Very smart, talented people who care a lot. The company invests a lot in its culture. Feels more like a university than a normal company in a lot of regards. Really sad that they have had a rough few years in terms of performance. Hope they regain their former glory soon!

    Cons

    Not really any issues here - was a great place to work.

    Pros

    Incredibly intelligent coworkers - everyone in the team loves to share knowledge and grow together. I would recommend any new graduate starting their career here, which is challenging but rewarding.

    Cons

    - Sometimes workload is very high. (acceptable compared to peers) - They should invest more in technology, which would save everyone a lot of time on some unnecessary duties.
