    Former Employee - Summer Analyst 

    I worked at Millennium Management (Investment Firm) for less than a year

    Pros

    A big shop, plenty of people to meet, great location. Friendly enough people given the line of work. Good opportunities for advancement, but a very competitive environment (in a good way, friendly competition).

    Cons

    The office was a bit plain, but apparently they will be relocating as they expand a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to lose the small company feeling as you get bigger. Probably unavoidable.
