    I worked at Marshall Wace North America

    Pros

    The culture is great-- really entrepreneurial with hardworking and bright staff. The office is beautiful too. With regard to the intern program I think they've done a wonderful job granting interns access to senior members of the firm. Honestly the whole office was quite welcoming to interns and wanted to make themselves available for questions, coffee chats, etc. A lot will be expected of you at the firm, but you will...

    Cons

    The flat hierarchy of the firm may be a deterrent for some looking for a lot of upward growth within a company, although that does not really impact interns or those joining at entry level. Some may not like the relatively early start time and limited WFO flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management really. The company has been hanging a lot over recent years due to headcount expansion and office relocation. The culture that Paul Marshall and Ian Wace have created is really unique and valuable to the firm, so make sure that's kept in tact as you continue to evolve. And perhaps create some opportunity for promotion or career growth within certain Middle/Back office roles.

Got hands on experience on many aspects of the business of my team. It's been a great summer...

    Cons

    Everything is great, just wish IT desk takes shorter time to help fix problems especially when it's obviously urgent and people cannot continue work without fixing it

    I worked at Marshall Wace North America for less than a year

    Pros

    Lovely people and beautiful office. People are super friendly and nice, although they are super busy. Internship program is well designed with seminars and various activities. I do get to have hands on experience on most aspects of the team's daily work. People are smart and you can definitely learn a lot from some of them. Free brekkie and lunch most of the week& dedicated coffee bar ensuring our productivity at...
