    I worked at D. E. Shaw India full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Good Compensation, Variable pay
    2. Very talented, hardworking folks.
    3. Relaxed Environment
    4. Approachable Senior Management

    This is one of the best firms to start your career as a software developer. You will mostly deal with enterprise software standards like Java/J2EE but that's about the same for every financial services company. You will get a sound understanding of web based applications and how technology can be used to solve business issues in high-volume financial services industry.

    You will get a strong sense of product ownership as early as a junior developer and you will be exposed to hedge fund processes and concepts extensively.

    Cons

    1. The workload can be a little too much at times.

    2. Variable pay is dependent on the company's performance. Mostly good, but any downside in the financial markets might affect the year end pay outs. But this is not always the case as the firm's trading strategies are quite market volatility proof that way.
