How do you assess pods at MMs during interview phase?
I'm currently interviewing with some of the household MMs (Think, Balyasny, P72, Millennium, Schonfeld, ExodusPoint and a few others) for their semi-systematic roles.
Throughout the processes, pretty much everything seems fine (PMs seem to have had good careers from looking at LinkedIns, analysts/quants seem pleasant to talk to and are accomplished). However isn't there likely to be adverse selection in this pod matching phase? (i.e. good teams likely have less turnover and so are less likely to interview so the pod you do get matched with is likely to be one that is "bad"/has high turnover.)
With this in mind, I want to know how one gets more of an idea of what pods are really like and how to accurately judge whether shit has just hit the fan with the pods I'm interviewing with and that's why I'm being interviewed.
