I know interns who had their summer positions at Bridgewater cancelled, but can't speak to full-time. To be honest, I'm quite surprised that they cancelled internships, especially as other funds like Citadel and DEShaw are going through with their programs.

Bridgewater was also down 20% in Q1 and may be facing outflows. Citadel is crushing it. Not sure about DES.

Heard DESCO is doing fine - I have friends working/interning there, I'll ask how it's going.

Read on BBG and through a buddy who joined Citadel in March, those guys were also extremely well prepared and well equipped to deal with the covid crisis. Put a TON of emphasis on business continuity so from an intern perspective, wouldn't be surprised if it's "status quo" (ie not cancelling..)

Wait so bridgewater interns just got screwed over? I cant see a place like Bridgewater just giving all interns auto-FT offers with their culture the way it is, but please (and gladly) correct me if im wrong
