    Pros

    -The firm is at the inflection point of growth. With Numeric's great track record combined with Man group's name brand kicking in, business has been great. Man also supplies Numeric with a lot of support in both hard dollars and infrastructure that allows research to move forward. -Given the growth path of the firm, there are a lot of new opportunities for new employees to take charge of. You can be given... responsibility for areas of research that the firm is venturing into, and you would be greatly rewarded if you were to succeed. There are a lot of opportunities for quants confident in their research abilities. -You are very close to the top. The CEO was promoted from my direct manager's position (head of research) and members of management are generally very accessible. They are reasonable in responding to your requests as well. They will always hear out your argument, and either help you implement your recommendations, or give you a very logically reasoned out answer as to why they will not pursue it. It leaves a good feeling even when you disagree. -The firm is a good combination of being innovative and being practical. They give you a lot of room to pursue the research problem however you want, and generally give you the support to do so. Though, of course, they also apply a reasonable amount of pressure so you can come out with research conclusions to help the business move forward.

    Cons

    -Coming with the inflection in growth and the career growth opportunities is a less defined culture in a fast growing firm. Hiring is happening very quickly to match the success of the firm business wise, and the outlook is great. However, it is uncertain how the culture can shift. Management is investing a lot to preserve the small company feel, but only time will tell how the cultural transition will work out.... -Boston cost of living is on the rise. I still like the city, but don't expect too much of a drop in cost of living when moving here from New York.

    Pros

    The moral is good, people are nice, and there is an entrepreneurial atmosphere, especially in the research department. Good pay, plenty of corporate events, wine-tasting Fridays, to compensate brilliant and hard-working people.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of... If any, you have to be self-motivated for pushing forward your projects.

    Willingness to teach, startup mentally in a test of time proven company, they want you to come up with new ideas and innovate, great people, clan/family mentality, lot of customization, everyone wants you to do well, great technology

    Cons

    Huge learning curve, you can’t always “shut off” when you leave work, not a direct onboarding process (pro and a con)
