Have had multiple interactions with Bridgewater, including a professor who was a former CIO. Can confirm, super weird.

I also interviewed. They said they strive everyday to seek out the truth in world. Their words not mine

People I know that works there are on the weird side but super smart. To me, it sounds like a cult there.

2yr non-compete is crippling; culture is extremely strange (people record their emotions in app), but the comp is easily 2x-3x street

Plan on moving to Dallas Texas next year. Currently with Deloitte MTS team and will be a senior at that time. Im wondering how the culture of the office is there? Also, how is the culture of the other firms. Im not opposed to moving firms. Just finished working three 80 hour weeks, so that would be a big plus to find a team where that is not expected on a regular basis!
