    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei Bridgewater Associates gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    I couldn't imagine passing up an opportunity to work at the core of this company. If you are top talent you should consider it.

    Kontras

    If you aren't close to the leadership it might not make sense or you may be poorly managed. Trains your mind to seek weaknesses and flaws vs. nurture strengths in people. Struggle to culturally adjust outside of BW at other companies if you dive in deeply.

    Ich habe bei Bridgewater Associates gearbeitet ()

    Pros

    Great pay, much higher than anywhere else for same role. Very bright and accomplished people around me. Ambitious plans. Nice food, nice locations. I really loved living in Westport, but it's not to everyone's taste (or budget).

    Kontras

    The culture is definitely a downer for the vast majority of people. The idea is for everyone to help each other improve, which sounds great in principle. Sadly, in practice, every diagnosis meeting starts with the premise, "Maybe you're not the right person for this role or this company", and it becomes very hard to be objective and open about weaknesses when your livelihood is on the line. (The location makes this worse, since many people move to work at Bridgewater and are isolated from their home networks and alternative jobs. The long non-compete and the insular culture exacerbate this.) Culture is dominated by bright people with limited experience, leading to a lot of "good ideas" that are actually just repeating old mistakes made elsewhere. The same bright people are encouraged to be somewhat deaf to new ideas from others. I found myself acting the same way, honestly; it was very hard for me to hold my independent point of view in the middle of that culture.

    Pros

    Learn about yourself. Culture is based on truth and honesty with a constant flow of feedback, which leads to a great opportunity to hear what people all around you truly think about you realtime and gain for a truer self-evaluation / opportunity to improve Growth opportunity. Company is very open to lateral and vertical movement...just comes down to your own abilities and desire to grow. My own path was from a part time consultant in technology to a full-time employee working directly for the CEO. Work with great people. Some of the smartest and brightest around, and a true caring that I felt transcended work.

    Kontras

    Work-life balance. Job can be all consuming, very long days are normal, and leaving the job at the job is tough: you can find yourself thinking about the feedback hours/days later.

    Ich habe weniger als ein Jahr bei Bridgewater Associates gearbeitet ()

    Pros

    If you goal is lifelong learning and to be successful in all forums of your life - this is one of the best places in the world to train. There are few places as devoted to understanding you & your development. - People: Some of the most exceptional, talented people you'll ever meet have found their way to Bridgewater. Incredibly humble and authentic on the whole. Many seem to become lifelong relationships. You want to go to work everyday. - Your Development: There are prb few places - let alone corporate companies - on this planet that devote as many resources to understanding you and helping you develop. The open feedback and culture all drive to understand the truth about you and flush out both your strengths and weakness. The understanding is not judgement based - it's incredibly useful. If you are open to taking feedback, you can learn to guardrail against your weaknesses and amplify your strengths. Not criticism- real feedback . - Culture: A unique place. A real meritocracy. Refreshing – no closed door conversations. You will see best practice management principles you read about in books, actually practiced here. Hyper logical, rational thinking. Clarity wins the day. - Opportunities & Work: The things you get to do will blow your mind. From working with famous entrepreneurs , investors, and scientist to working on cutting edge problems. The organization is adaptive and in a constant state of change. Which means you can have incredible impact. Not structured or run like a "hedge fund". More of an institution. Job assignment works on matching you (based on your unique ability profile) to the highest demand "problems to solve. - Perks: There are many. Great healthcare. Attention to details: A bus that goes to and from NY each day, social events, free lunch and breakfast, BBQs during the summer....

    Kontras

    Less Cons, more Considerations: About Bridgewater - Hard to understand organization structure from outside. Within the company there are areas devoted to research, tech, 'client financial advisory', operations... - It’s a very hard gig to land - Read the Principles by Ray Dalio About You - You have to ask good questions, and learn to ask better ones - If you don’t like confronting what you are really like / your ego, may not be the place for you - May encounter very different principles than you've seen in your career. For example "content less management" (e.g. By and large, the idea management is a practice unto itself). - It will take a little while to adapt, and then once you do, you’ll have a hard time working anywhere else. People who leave Bridgewater seem to miss it ( I know I do!)
