Any thoughts on Citadel? From consulting to hedge fund seems like a good transition ( at least pay wise) , but have heard it’s a rotating Glassdoor. Would love to hear if anyone has any insights.

I have heard it’s an aggressive culture. They are quick to fire if the new hire does not work out, at least for investment roles.

They are known as Chicago’s “revolving door”. They fire people liberally, the culture is quite intense. Was told to expect it to be as or more intense than MBB.

Certainly “more”

Haha correct. I was quoted a similar figure , 250k base and up to 130% bonus and a bunch of perks type of thing. Kinda not inclined tho given McK is pretty chill too ( but pays half tho)

What level are you on McK author?

McK they reached out through an external recruiting firm. Recruiting firm presented my cv and then rejected. I think they pay a lot of attention to prestige. I was at PwC.

They reached out then rejected my cv for the same role last year. Nice to know the comp though.

Ah , was it after you shared the CV? Seems kinda harsh tho

High comp. Very intense and demanding of high performance. Some people thrive on it and love it there. Others kid themselves that they will be fine or even enjoy it, and then wash out fast.

Dude stop lmao.

Do they pay high for strat / ops roles as well,

Wow for what YOE? Role? I work in a sweatshop currently and happy to leave to another for more pay. Can always return to my current sweatshop lol

Best exit ops in Boston?

I recently spoke to the HR of a company where he kept insisting on knowing my salary exepctations. I asked for a range for the role , he did not provide any information on that and said it depends on skill set and differs from person to person. To the point that he wanted to know the total comp off expected even when i said we can discuss on it once i learn more on the role. The number i quoted i feel is less than what i am willing to settle for. How should i reopen discussion on it?
