    I have been working at DC Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Intelligent and friendly people, stimulating quantitative problems, team-based approach to investing, great way to build skills across many disciplines (data science, finance, energy). Self-driven workplan teaches you to really think critically and own the analysis. Very little busy-work. Flat structure, approachable managers, fair opportunities to present to upper management and make impactful change

    Cons

    High turnover rate means loss of institutional knowledge, less room for skill development after 3-4 years, long commute if you want to live downtown

    Advice to Management

    Consider quality of life changes that could increase retention.

    I have been working at DC Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    DC Energy had some of the smartest and friendliest people I've worked with. Everyone knew their stuff and didn't hesitate to help each other out. Comp and benefits were decent as well.

    Cons

    Hours could be unpredictable and is heavily dependent on which team you get placed. The turnover rate is also on the high side.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize associates and analysts to stay longer
