    Why don't you talk to the recruiters and tell them about your FB offer. Let them decide if they want a chance to interview you and beat the FB offer?

      Nothing wrong in maximizing your chances for better TC.

    drw and Chicago trading won’t match in raw numbers but depending on their bonus structure and whether you’re swe or trading you could be making more than/comparable to fb in terms of cost of living. Rent and basic costs are cheaper in Chicago so you could see yourself saving similar amounts and living with comparable or better quality of life at some of these funds

      +1! Good 1st yr quant traders can make >$500K TC in a good year (such as last year).

      Also, seems like you are a great candidate for trading firms. Try other trading firms in Chicago too: IMC, Citadel, Optiver, Akuna, and etc.. The cultures at trading firms can be drastically different.

      Thanks for posting! I am hesitant to pursue quant roles now because I think a recession will hit soon and I think that’s a bad role to be in during that time. Odds are stacked against you vs they’ll be for 5 years out

      Recession might mean more money for quant traders who profit on volatility regardless of directions of the market

    I heard palantir pays a lot but they have a weird culture.

    Quant jobs might pay better, especially over time.

    Congrats!

      Palantir pays pretty averagely. If you don’t value the options you’re looking at around the 160k
