Crazy DE Shaw storyHF
i was talking to a friend, and he told me about this guy who's a math prodigy, one of the best in the world, who received an offer from DE Shaw straight after graduating from harvard, that offered a BASE salary of $450K! Of course, I was completely incredulous, but my friend said he's absolutely confident that the information is correct. This guy knows what he's talking about, so I'm inclined to believe him. Nonetheless, it's pretty insane if true.
