If you could work at any fund -- best possible shops?

What are your top 10-20 picks for SM HFs? If you could work at any of those shops, where would you pick and why? Let's keep it to L/S, activist, and distressed/event driven. I guess the obvious ones are the big Tiger cubs and places like Pershing and Baupost, but what about the rest of your list? Curious + need ideas as to where I should try and get a seat at haha.
