Moving from IB Covg to DE Shaw/Citadel/Two Sigma?

anyone care to describe the culture/salary differences between the two sets of firms? currently in a BB IB coverage team but have been approached by one of the quant teams at the three hedge funds for a kind of coverage role.

i don't know much about the hedge funds other than what you can find from google/company websites.
