"Great team"Jun 18, 2017

I worked at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm

Pros

Former Employee - Team Lead

I worked at Jump Trading full-time for more than a year

Pros

Very smart, talented, hard working people who don't have egos and are easy to work with. Everyone is treated with respect. The company invests heavily to keep up with and continually outpace the... industry. Very forward thinking. Compensation and benefits are excellent. Good office space in Chicago.

Cons

It's a big company, so there is some of the inevitable big company slowness. But it isn't too bad. Not too many lunch options around the Chicago office.

Advice to Management

Continue to invest in the business and treat people with respect
