    I worked at Teza Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teza had the ability to attract top talent, so you got to work with incredible people. Though that may have changed given recent multi-year under-performance.

    Cons

    Weak management team driven by a weak CEO; Misha appears to have a divisive style (that he carried over from Citadel) where he pits people against one another to everyone's mutual destruction. His charisma got a lot of people in, but attrition became a problem once they got to know Misha better.

    Advice to Management

    Value people and help grow teams.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    A lot of interesting research projects across all aspects of quantitative trading. Collaboration with very smart people. Not many inflated egos. Free lunch, great benefits.

    Cons

    Somewhat secretive, at least between different teams. Overall, however, much better than other firms in this space (as in, you actually talk to everyone).

    Advice to Management

    Allow for easier rotation between teams. Allow for new ideas to be attempted faster.
