    I worked at Dimensional Fund Advisors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance is the most obvious and most compelling benefit. You can leave the office at 5:00 everyday and not have to think about work while you're out of office. If you desire a stepping stone onto something else and foresee only staying at this company for a couple of years -- then this could be a good option for you. Especially if you are fresh out of undergrad - I think a position within PM or IAD is... a totally reasonable option. Just don't stay too long - unless you have carved out an amazing niche for yourself.

    Cons

    Virtually all of the work in PM would be done by a precocious high school student. Upward career mobility is awfully unexciting. Pay is no great. But bear in mind two things -- 1) You generally have very easy work hours and 2) At DFA virtually everyone is dispensable and everyone understands this.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt some willingness to develop new equity strategies. If you refuse to adapt, the world will quickly and happily pass you by.
