    I have no idea, but two days ago their HR called me to try and hire me. It would seem that is contradictory to what you are saying.

  8. Peak6 rumors surface every time we see a lot of vol. They take on a lot of risk.

    I have taken down my resume from Monster and Dice. Inspite of that, I get bombarded with about 30 calls a day from either the firm or recruiting firms representing firms.

    Every once in a while I get a really interesting call.

    I don't work for Peak6.

    I know someone that does some very high level recruiting. He said that Peak6 has sort of a "rough" reputation. While I usually just take that as input and don't put much weight on it, the source in this case was of the highest order, so I could not ignore it.

    If a firm has a really interesting opportunity, I generally ignore opinons on the firm, no matter what anyone/who says. For example, one firm was looking for someone to do research using state of the art AI algorithms on large datasets. I think that would be really interesting...
