    Pros

    Food and party .. that is it.

    Cons

    menial work
    according to the firm they hire best engineers .. and this is a big LIE. They hire average engineers and give them below average work.

    Some managers treat employees like dogs.

    No technical or knowledge growth possible in the firm.

    I worked at D. E. Shaw India full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free Food, Cab Service, In-office Gym and cab service. People stick around mostly due to the high salary

    Cons

    Extremely bad if you are looking for technical challanges. Also upper management in India is filled with politics. If you are not in politics you won't grow. Off late people have start leaving despite the high salary because good people don't stand dirty politics. Hence the leftovers would create an even dirty environment in India for sure. Very little scope to move across teams/projects

    Advice to Management

    Need a complete change of the upper management
