Citadel Offer Eval

Sep 12, 2019 9 Comments

I've received an offer from Citadel Hedge Fund (not Securities) for a SWE role. I got an offer for TC 300K (base + bonus) and most of it will be as a bonus. Since this depends on the firm's and the individual's performance, I was hoping this community would give me more information about it. Do you get the entire amount if you meet expectation? Have there been events where individuals haven't gotten the amount despite meeting expectation?

(Tagging Facebook and Google since I've seen a few folks who worked at Citadel previously)

TC: 200K
YOE: 2

    What you need to worry about working at Citadel is keeping your job, not money

    I received slightly higher than my target bonus first year and no one I know received anything lower than expected

      Very team dependent. Average is around 50-60 hours/week. There’s some pressure but stress is very manageable for software engineers.

      A bit of both. I was asked a combination of Hards and Mediums.
