I've been getting interest from many recruiters in the quant space. I chose Google because nk shop guaranteeds bonus after first year while Google was almost all guaranteed.
I'm interested in: HRT, Two Sigma, Jane Street, DRW, and Vatic specifically, as those are the ones contacting me. Definitely looking into others like Tower and DE Shaw. Do any of these firms guarantee bonus after the first year or have a bonus floor? I would definitely like to be there if they do but it's hard as a new grad to take the risk of not guaranteed comp when I can make guaranteed money here at Google. To those who just say 'interview'c these companies have some of the long processes I know of, it'll be a massive waste of time if I end up in the same situation I was in out of undergrad. Looking for answers from people who've gotten offers from these companies only please, not just speculation.
Not super appealing to gamble a solid FB position with vague promises. Even with the FB stock drop it’s still a significant pay cut.
