Google Brain SWE vs. Quant Research at hedge fund
Given similar TC (~250k) what would you choose in the early stage of career (new grad, BS)?
Hedge fund say one of Two Sigma, Citadel, DEShaw
Both involve applied machine learning, in a different context
Both problem domains are academically interesting and challenging
Am curious to know which direction it would be easier to transition to/from, TC progression, etc.
Would love to hear some first-hand experience
