Considering an interview with Two Sigma. I know that the comp is great and WLB is terrible. I want to know how these companies are perceived in SV. Is having them on your resume equivalent to FANG? Will there be good exit opportunities to work at Big Tech companies (Bay Area or Seattle) after 2 or 3 years?
Trying to understand whether it'll be a good thing to have on my resume.

FNG and Two Sigma have roughly equal prestige with Two Sigma probably having the highest floor talent wise.
That being said, when going to tech from quant finance, you may find the skills don’t translate as well as if you were in tech the entire time. This also works in the other direction.
TLDR: Two Sigma very good to have on resume.
