    Dependent on PM

    Jan 29, 2023 - Data Scientist in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good infrastructure and support. A lot of the dev ops and engineering type work will be handled for you.

    Cons

    Entirely dependent on the PM you work under (if you are an embedded data scientist). Some PMs treat you as a front office employee; others see you purely in a support role. Comp also entirely determined by PM. Little growth opportunities.

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are a lot of resources if you need them - there's a department for everything. If you need support from business development, HR, employment services, they will listen. The firm is focused on mentoring and building long term relationships, as evidenced by their Launchpoint and Academy program.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be overwhelming how many resources there are and where to find them.

    Great company, great people

    Nov 28, 2022 - Quantitative Research Analyst in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I work for Cubist (Point72's quant arm). I joined the company as a junior research analyst after getting my Ph.D. - People here are extremely helpful and talented. You would get help whenever you need it, from your manager, mentor, colleague, and even the CEO, which is especially important to a junior person like me. - You got chances to do interesting projects that are at the core of the trading business. If you love finance research, this is the place to go - the environment is similar to academia; plus, you can see the real impact of your research. - Employee benefits are awesome. You get free insurance for the family - medical, dental, and vision.

    Cons

    To be honest, I have nothing to complain about. It has been 1.5 years, and never have I regretted my decision since I joined the firm.
