Love it. Strong culture but haven’t really met any really arrogant/asshole personalities. Comp and non monetary benefits are great. Firm as a whole has been doing well (read up on both fund performance and Citadel Securities revenues/market share). Also actively recruiting in a few different areas (fundamental equity L/S, fixed income, technology/engineering)

I’m on the trading side. I would say that for junior folks, they put a big emphasis on pedigree (top name universities, IB experience and so on). If you’re more mid level or lateraling from another buy side, it’s a heavier focus on outright performance and results. The interview process is rigorous, with a few different rounds, including things like case studies and technical exercises (my role is more on the quantitative side so I got drilled on Python for example). Hope this helps!

Is it a pod platform? What’s it like working as an analyst?

Yep it’s pods based loosely on asset class and/or broader strategy/investment styles, and then separated out further from there (sector, region, etc). On the trading side, not an analyst, so can’t say exactly what it’s like. I do know that a lot of the hiring has been on the analyst/associate side plus the occasional opportunistic PM hires

Have offers from Firm A (5k employees 1B revenue) & Firm B (2k employees 200M revenue) to come in as a senior manager and create/build a new, niche tax practice similar to what I played a pivotal role in building at a B4. My biggest issue at B4 has been the big firm BS (hard to get things approved, slow moving, high performers not rewarded appropriately). What’s the right balance between the resources/client base of a larger firm and the autonomy/pay of a smaller firm? How small is too small?

I think one of the underrated reasons the market is trading is algorithms and sentiment analysis.

I want to understand why was Arthur Anderson kicked out of the audit business. I know they played a major part in the Enron scandal. But still these days we are seeing scandals happening.

Then why didn't Arthur Anderson in accounting and audit business especially what I have learnt that it was largest among the big 5 at that time?
