Featured Review

I worked at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm

Pros

Decent comp, generally nice and mostly smart people, trusted to get on with the job

Cons

Tenure matters more than it should

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at G-Research full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Friendly teams, with incredibly bright colleagues. Management respect and heed advice and direction from technical teams. Industry leading compensation, would be hard to beat unless you're willing to... sacrifice your life outside of work. Great support throughout virus period.

Cons

Security restrictions, but these are improving. Working from home was previously restricted, will have to see how this is handled after the virus period.

Advice to Management

Continue doing what you're doing. You clearly value upwards feedback, continue to do so!
