    I have been working at Marshall Wace North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Consistent fund performance drives consistent asset growth - pretty much the best type of hedge fund to have as your employer. -Smartest collection of people I've ever worked with. -Focus on continuous improvement is real, with a willingness to spend on necessary technology/resources to drive it. -Health/Retirement benefits are incredibly generous including FULL 401k match. -Breakfast and Lunch onsite every day plus coffee drinks made to order. -Firmwide focus on philanthropy comes from the top, with a very generous matching gift program.

    Cons

    -Some very big personalities at the senior/managerial ranks. They're very smart, but they can be a little bit too aware of that fact. -If you're looking for frequent detailed feedback, look elsewhere.
