    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Dimensional Fund Advisors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I’m honestly shocked at how many positive reviews there are. They have to be fake ... The only positives are superficial things like they have good food in the cafeteria and the building is nice (though you’ll have to see it every day, since you’re not ever allowed to work from home). It’s a great place to work if you’re a white male though! They seem to love those!

    Cons

    No focus on career development. No focus on diversity or inclusion. Strongly against working remotely.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up - it’s 2019!

    Pros

    Cons

    Communication around medium and longer term strategy can be improved.
