    Is this a joke ? That’s like comparing old McDonald’s food ( capital one) vs a nice 5 star gourmet meal (2s)

    I’ve been to two sigma’s onsite and the people there are night and day (very friendly and strong technically) different than the vast majority at capital one ( average to mediocre )

      Fine, but you don’t have to spit in your dinner plate.

      Clearly it’s not so bad if your tag line still says Capital One.

      Crapping on your current employer only makes yourself look bad. Don’t be a desu.

      It does, in the same way that admitting to making mistakes looks bad.
      What's important is that we learn from those mistakes -- such as deciding to work at Capital One

      Do you even realize that I love shitposting about Microsoft just as much and that your tears only bring me ever more joy in my conquest?

      Soon you’ll be shitposting about the slavery that is Amazon. Don’t let the salt wash out your tears then 😂

    One of these is not like the other (hedge fund vs credit cards mostly)

      Oh. I was on the same page until you said "hedge fund vs credit cards" -- I was thinking that they were unalike in that the quality of the job is so inequivalent

    Chillax guys I have friends at C1 and it’s a decent tech culture. 2S feels pretty big company now except for certain teams.

      In recent years, TS hired many managers from other companies (eg ibm, Amazon, banks). Those managers brought the approaches they are familiar with. So TS is much more corporate now.

      I see. Did the culture get worse? Amazon and banks are generally known for worse culture than a place like Google for example

      Amazon mgmt is one issue. People may not be happy under amazon style management

      That's unfortunate. Assuming cultures important, do you think it's still worth working at Two Sigma for those considering job hopping from G or FB?

      Teams more financial focus may be likely not impacted that much (because big tech company managers hardly can join as managers)

      Wouldn't teams with a financial focus end up being dominated by ex-Goldman sachs and other potentially toxic Wall Street managers?

      I was gonna say. Finance and Tech have been converging on the same culture for years. It's just a bunch of bros walking around with inflated perceptions of their actual value, caring more about TC and company names than what they actually work on. Maybe you still have more video games in the office with tech, but finance is better gender diversity - not a bad tradeoff.

      You say that like there's anything wrong with valuing TC over what you work on

    Capital One is easy to be successful if you are smart and motivated. The work life balance is solid. With that said the people are solid, but well below FANG levels.
