Are there any hedge funds you WOULDN'T work at?

Even with good pay?

For me it would be Tepper.  It's like if you gave some middle aged feel strong a billion bucks.  I respect his knowledge and all but the dude is a tool

Are you guys 10 years old? Tepper is the exact type of investor you should emulate and potentially the GOAT. He puts up amazing numbers and can outperform in any environment, not just talk about how every tech company at 20x sales is a never sell because it will compound 50% growth for the next decade right before rates go up

no, just MLP has more of an independent HF feel (according to friends) and is *slightly less toxic than Citadel. I have heard favorable things about p72. Unknown on Balyasny

I feel bad, first I thought [Ben Matan Biran] / User836 / BoutiqueBananas was an expert troll but he's actually severely asperger'd out if you read his original WSO mentor post / podcast below. I guess WSO is his outlet. I hope you find the enjoyment you seek buddy :) Just know that you come off as unknowledgeable on many subjects but maybe more so than others in the HF forum. Idk how asperger people take to constructive criticism, but thought I'd pass it along in case he is able to reflect on this.

Otherwise wish you the best during COVID and whatever job / hobby you are up to after your few banking stints.

Man, thanks for posting this I never actually took the time to listen to that pod, cause its like "wharton to EB" like pretty expected path. But explains a lot intellectually very smart book smart guy but may lack some soft skils and awareness to see how his advice to others who did not have his path could be taken.

Hope this dude finds himself into the buyside at some point, people like this should typically start out right away on the buyside from what I have seen. Also wish him the best.
