    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Two Sigma (Über 5 Jahre)

    Pros

    Work life balance is still ok, though getting worse.

    Kontras

    Rife with politics, culture now completely taken over by ex Goldman Sachs employees. Once this place had the best benefits, but one by one they've been removed as "cost-cutting measures." Reorgs happen all the time, and a lot of the best talent is slowly leaving.

    Rat an das Management

    Listen more to engineers. Try to get things stable before disrupting flows. Bring back our benefits. It'll be harder and harder to keep talent while we keep losing to every other tech company in benefits.

    poor management structure, no one advocating for you

    hire competent people who actually know how to manage a large team of people

    Ich arbeite bei Two Sigma (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Solid pay for the industry. Some other competitors pay more but usually at the cost of WLB, and TS pays well into the 'diminishing returns' range anyways.

    Extremely flexible hours, along with limited working from home or remote.

    Great work life balance.

    Will reimburse conferences, tuition, textbooks, and has great internal trainings and seminars. Goes hand-in-hand with flexible hours.

    On-site snacks including fresh fruit and vegetables.

    The name is super great for the resume, and on many teams the challenges and learning are hard to find other places.

    Kontras

    Politics and bureaucracy are the name of the game. Sucking up, checking off checkboxes for the sake of it, and potemkin villages are where most effort goes.

    "Not-my-problem" politics lead to internal issues festering way longer than they should because managers flee from responsibility and employee initiative isn't taken seriously.

    Micromanagement abound, little independence of employees and a lot of talent is squandered because of this.

    Rat an das Management

    Listen to people with boots on the ground, and give them actual independence. Some of your businesses could be so much more if management just listened to the people who actually knew what they were doing. All the ingredients are there.

    Lay off the politics and bureaucracy, reward financial and engineering success instead of checkboxes checked off, or as was suggested at a recent presentation, "number of jiras closed".

    Dump the promotion committees, or at least allow employee managers to be more actively involved instead of having a totally faceless group make a decision.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Two Sigma (Über 3 Jahre)

    Pros

    Modernizing of technology stack
    There are some still really great managers who do want you to succeed
    Flexibility with choosing projects sometimes, flexible hours
    Gym

    Kontras

    As others have mentioned, bureaucracy and red-tape in addition to heavy dosing of politics
    Blatant nepotism, especially within the network of former Goldman Sachs employees
    Engineering middle management emphasizes and rewards the wrong set of behaviors
    Most senior/high-level positions (and corresponding SVP titles) are given to new hires rather than loyal, long-time employees

    Rat an das Management

    Reward loyalty and take care of your committed employees

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Two Sigma

    Pros

    Pay is good/decent, benefits are amazing. Perks are really good (gym, free food, all the snacks in the kitchen, etc).
    Lots of smart people walking around that are mostly humble and will answer your questions.
    Complex environment but you can and probably will learn a lot in a relatively short amount of time.

    Kontras

    The usual corporate bureaucracy and politics. As Two Sigma grows into a medium-sized entity, there are some growing pains. Limited upward mobility depending on your management chain (they essentially shut down a partnering project with a chance for me to transfer to that team). Depending on your engineering area, work/life balance can be bad.
    Mixed use of proprietary technology and open-source. The proprietary stuff could hurt your marketability.
    Did I mention all the politics and corporate red tape around everything?

    Rat an das Management

    Lay off the politics to allow your engineers to get the work done and advance in the company. Treating them with respect and taking their input into consideration when making big changes for the team would be much appreciated.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Two Sigma gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    None that I can think of. This place is plain hell.

    Kontras

    There are so much racism and finance-bro-esque bullying at play that makes it so hard to work at. Unless you are white or Indian, don't go to this place.

    Rat an das Management

    Be nice
