what is it like to move from one to another (assuming you get the offer from ts) or to other hedge funds that are less corporative/ more like a tech company/ less crazy hours? especially with the noncompete at citadel I've heard is long, and always enforced. is it doable?
not horrible, not great. it largly depends on the team you're in, but some people put in a lot of hours, and I get the feeling it's a bit frowned upon if you don't do the same if you're in a team like that. mostly, the culture is really corporate, desktops are locked out of the internet, you get free food but eat at your desk etc.
