    I worked at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Focus on learning; challenging work; great colleagues with interesting backgrounds. This place is full of non-finance folks who know their stuff. The ecletic backgrounds make it a fantastic and interesting place to work. Upper management does a lot to make it a great place to work, offering lots of great perks and depending on the department, lots of room to grow, both personally and professionaly.

    Cons

    Some groups far more intense than others. Some managers very difficult to work for and it can go unnoticed or purposefully unnoticied. Most employees are very friendly, however it can be a bit snobby/elitist.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing recruiting and retaining amazing talent.
