Two Sigma - employee-friendly; deserves its good reputation | Glassdoor.co.uk
  1. "employee-friendly; deserves its good reputation"

    Current Employee - Software Engineer 

    I have been working at Two Sigma full-time

    Pros

    A healthy, friendly working environment; reasonable and mostly flexible hours - nice for people with kids; good salaries, benefits, time off, etc.; technical challenges are good (but see further discussion in "cons"); plenty of opportunities to switch teams within the company; well-communicated path for career advancement.

    Cons

    Our business in the end is financial, so even though we are highly technical we are probably not going to transform the software industry the way Google has, for example.

    Pros

    Culture: do great work, work with incredibly intelligent and talented people, and importantly, no wall street culture. By that I mean people do not have the delusion that overwork or self-sacrifice is a heroic quality, or source of success for the firm. Hiring the smartest people, and setting very high expectations for them is much more important. You're not expected to work 100 hours per week, but you are expected to have the most intelligent work product in the industry.

    Cons

    Small-ish company - you have to be comfortable being patient when looking for career growth opportunities
