Anyone here work at Wellington Management and is willing to chat with me about a Data Science / Quant role? Recruiter reached out and I’m considering whether I should interview for it. Currently work at a Global Macro Desk of a MM hedge fund (think Millennium, Balyasny, Pt72) and looking to understand more about firm culture, investment process, career prospects to the extent possible and comp. Thanks!

Definitely take the interview. Wellington is a top shop in the business, stable asset base/institutional clients and invests/hire their people to develop them not just for day 1, but for day 1000.

Work there now. Although I'm not super familiar with the group you'd be applying into, I love the culture and long term mindset of folks here.

Don’t work there but they have a very strong reputation, although comp in some cases is meant to be a bit soft. Apparently they’re building out a presence in NYC and just opened an office.

I would take the interview for sure, but comp will likely not be as competitive

Don’t take the job but you can take the interview. The data science guys there do like project based work and is a shared resource. Where you are at actually sound like a more meaningful experience.
