        I worked at Millennium Management (Investment Firm) full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        Extremely successful buyside hedge fund. Considered top 3 fund in NY - probably number one for longevity and consisten returns 14% over 25 years.

        Cons

        Has become more institutionalized in recent years. Operates more closely to a large bank than small creative Hedge Fund. From a data perspective, is very much reactionary than proactive when it comes to data procurement strategies.

        Advice to Management

        Take a look at your peers who value data and it's acquisition as the single most important piece of the firm.
