Someone at Citadel says...

In the past, I've worked in a lot of different environments and generally found that people are either friendly OR competent. In my experience, my colleagues at Citadel are (as a rule) both, which makes it a great place to work. Having colleagues that set the bar high helps me strive to do grow in my own skillset

Intelligent peers. I worked at both FAANG and Citadel and I have to say that my peers are Citadel are extraordinarily smart, helpful, and dedicated.
Citadel is a fast-paced work environment that prides itself on winning and meritocracy. If you're a highly driven individual confident in your abilities, you can make a significant impact in a short period of time. Citadel is an amazing place to create your own space -- if you work hard enough on something you think is important, Citadel will likely reward you with the resources to make further improvements.
You have to be here to know what's really like to be a part of the best investment management firm in the world. I am really motivated by the extreme emphasis on meritocracy and a lack of political games. Everyone is laser-focused on getting things done, better, faster and in the right way. If you're someone that has a great attention to details and strong drive to deliver business value, there is no better place where you can bring your talent and grow your career.
Working on some of the most exciting and challenging problems. Usually, good teamwork and opportunities to grow and take on more responsibility. Seems the culture has really changed over the past 2-3 years
