    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Marshall Wace North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    MW is a technology driven company, from the roots of quantitative trading has grown an organisation that is inherently data driven and technological at heart.
    Enormous leeway is given to technologists to choose the appropriate tools and systems to solve business problems rather than hidebound adherence to specific technologies
    Bureaucracy is kept to a minimum
    The people at MW, across business and technology are some of the smartest in the business
    Relatively small teams for a firm with the assets of MWAM foster communication within the teams
    High degree of automation across multiple areas of the business
    These last 3 things make for an environment where learning to be excellent rather than good is available
    Chances to work in technology areas other than your core speciality are always open
    The latest office move is spectacular - 5 floors on Sloane square, a gym and a restaurant taking an entire floor, and equipped to a high degree not seen normally
    Culture driven from the energetic Ian Wace is definitely not stuffy!

    Cons

    Very rigid on starting times, 8 am on the dot daily
    High pressure environment, only suited to someone with a high tolerance for ambiguity and the ability to deal with conflicting requirements
    Low on process - the other edge of the lack of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Flexi time / work from home options should be expanded

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Marshall Wace North America (London, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Online application form -> telephone interview -> assessment centre.
    On the day I was asked to present a piece of code I wrote to two company members.
    Group activity, technical interview and HR interview. Great overall experience, lovely offices and a nice atmosphere.
