    I worked at Aspect Capital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Filled with hard working, dedicated and passionate individuals all determined to drive the company forward, together. People are friendly, there’s no department segregation, and the social side is outstanding. If you’re fortunate enough to be offered a job take it! You won’t regret it.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the organisation climbing the career ladder can be slow, but it’s the same in all hedge funds of this size.

    I have been working at Aspect Capital full-time

    Pros

    At Aspect, I am working with a fantastic team of engineers. There is a great passion, lack of ego and continuous desire for improvement and excellence in every member of the team. I have a huge amount of respect for every one of them and I consider myself very lucky to work with them. I can't begin to speak highly enough of the team management. Aspect has a great culture. Everyone is really friendly and people are always willing to take the time and help. There is a real culture of respect, transparency and integrity, which is at the core of Aspect, right from the top.

    Cons

    None that I've seen so far

    I worked at Aspect Capital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was at Aspect for over 3 years as a software developer. Aspect has a great culture and lots of perks from free food to countless social events. All employees are genuinely really friendly and happy to help out however they can. It offers a great opportunity to work with some exceptional developers on all facets of their technology systems - never pigeon-holed and never bored. There is no "business/technology" cultural divide at the company which is quite unique in the financial sector. This allows for a good relationship between technology and the business so you are never fighting politics, or lost in business concepts you don't understand. It is a brilliant place to have a career, filled with smart, enthusiastic and friendly people. It was a pleasure to work there.

    Cons

    Really didn't have any downsides working at Aspect

    I worked at Aspect Capital full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Aspect was a fantastic place to work and a great company to be a part of. The board and senior management portray a compelling business that is easy to want to be a part of. Investment management is a challenging and complex business to be part of. Aspect has a inclusive and open culture where you feel part of the team. Regular sharing and briefing sessions help you understand the challenges faced by the business, how your contribution matters. Aspect understands that people deliver more when they feel empowered and accountable for what they deliver. What matter is what people deliver and how they behave. Motivating people extends beyond this to making work a please, and having fun! This is reflected day to day in a thoughtful office environment, regular social activities and other events (charity sports days, team away days etc.) Aspect has been and is very successful. Some things are learned the hard way and Aspect’s been able to build on this experience, along with it’s many successes. Aspect has the resilience, experience and people to continue to be successful in adapting to the demands of it’s client and the markets in the future.

    Cons

    At Aspect, size may be a limiting factor for some, its relatively small operating in a specific domain and has a flat structure. To get the most find ways to align your interests with the needs of the business.
