    I have been working at Two Sigma full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance is still ok, though getting worse.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to 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.

    Leadership Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Two Sigma (New York, NY (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter call, Hiring Manager Call, On-site full day of interviews. The whole process was very well coordinated, and very well communicated.

    I met onsite with relevant peers that I would be working with and discussed the state of the company, my past experiences, and some personality aspects. The people there are definitely smart, and some might describe them as "mature" in their way of thinking, but I'd call it "conservative" with regards to understanding the goods, bads, and things that can be changed, or the difference between relevant history and capabilities for the future.

    Although there is a yearning for a progressive attitude and mentality there, there is also a sense that there are less chances that will be taken, and bit by bit, it will drive them back towards the middle of the road, where opportunity to make non-linear advancements or jumps with experimentation will be stifled by the highlighting of mistakes that are expected to accompany.

    The company and people there will do fine, but I think over time they will become more institutionalized than trailblazers.
