Bridgewater Associates

Does anyone know anyone that works there? I have a phone interview with them and I’d like to know what the culture is like, etc.

i had a couple interviews there. You can shoot me an e-mail if you’d like. User name @


They are a direct competitor of ours. They very much stress all for one, one for all type of atmosphere. We compete head on with some strategies we offer. It’s a bull fight out there… GL

^ Cliff, is that you?

I had a total bs phone interview with them. Vapid hr type asking me stupid behavioral questions.

Any truth to the cell phone collection policy?

Is the Cliff reference pointed to me? If so, no Cliff here. :slight_smile:

I was referring to AQR…main guy there is known for following blogs and responding to them. Aside of AQR and RenTech, what other real competitors?

Kynikos, Citadel, D.E. Shaw

I forgot Shaw - not really Citadel on the uber-quant stuff (although slowly ramping up), Kynikos not on same field. Hutchin Hills, Platinum Grove, along with others are smaller tier, I was referring more to the big players.
