    I have been working at Tudor Investment Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tudor's core values go back to the firm's founding in the 1980s and still resonate today. The firm has a collaborative culture which facilities the exchange of ideas among colleagues and across various departments. The firm values individual initiative and gives people significant responsibility early in their careers. At the same time, Tudor emphasizes work-life balance more than many of its peers. Senior management recognizes that markets constantly evolve and invests in R&D accordingly. Senior leadership at Tudor buys into this philosophy and is positioning the firm for the future.

    Cons

    The overall outlook for active management in general (hedge fund or actively-managed long-only strategies) has been down over the past few years. However, firms that adapt will succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue efforts to adapt to changes in the hedge fund industry.

    I worked at Tudor Investment Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere. Gym onsite in Greenwich. Nice modern office in New York and London. Mostly nice people while the company still had its footing.

    Cons

    So relaxed that the company is failing. Too much focus on back/middle office for improving the company instead of alpha generation.

    Pros

    Decent pay and large offices in Greenwich.

    Cons

    Tudor has become the prototype for an overpriced under-performing hedge fund. The working environment has devolved into dysfunction, and the future is quite bleak. Formerly a stable firm, employees have recently been resigning, laid off, and leaving the firm after only a few months in droves. Clients have lost trust in the firm and nearly all outside capital has been redeemed. The culture has been reverting back to an 80's style old boy's club of traders, but unlike the 80's the firm is no longer profitable. Open harassment, doublespeak, deception, and unethical behavior are now common. No longer a serious place; avoid at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    To PTJ: it is time for a major reorganization of middle and senior management. Internal politics and incompetence mostly at management levels are the main reason Tudor has lost almost all its AUM. Put an end to the cronyism, nepotism, and favoritism. Hire some people that actually know what they are doing and perhaps you may get a glimpse of the good old days again.
