- Facebook Rdfrt@chupanibre I think the median quoted excludes people who can't perform well and are let go which is much more common compared to tech. So it's not "average" in that sense. I also suspect the "caliber" or at least the "qualification" of average quant researcher hired at top hedge funds (even before firings) is higher than the average software engineer at google or FB. So we are not comparing average of similar set of people. Third, the industry is just different.Nov 24, 2018 5
