Anyone who has some knowledge of finance knows of citadel. I hear it’s very profit driven - even one bad quarter or month can get the portfolio manager and his/her team fired. Hours are awful for tech and lower level folks.

Hours can be brutal. They also require travel to the Chicago office on a regular basis.

Their medallion fund has had the best sustained performance of any individual hedge fund in history. Having their logo on your resume is a big deal, but I echo the above.. hours are brutal

I feel like I’m ruining my health by being in consulting. Stress and unrelenting pressure (self-imposed and otherwise) have compelled me to use stimultants to remain focused, which has severely amplified my preexisting anxiety and insomnia. I have contemplated quitting the job but I come from a poor family and am afraid of the uncertainty leaving would bring, especially in light of Covid. How have others navigated similar situations? Any advice?
