    I have been working at Arrowstreet Capital

    Pros

    The company is growing rapidly and is a leader in their industry. They have an excellent system that works well in the investment management world, and they know how to keep customers happy. The ethics of the company are excellent.

    Cons

    Rapid Growth means that the organization has been adding lots of new people. The company no longer has the very small company feel, but there is no reason that you can't get to know most of the people within the company within time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing -- this is a great place to work.
