“I’ve been challenged with a tremendous amount of responsibility since my first day at Citadel. While the learning curve is steep, it has been a rewarding experience that has allowed me to make important contributions from the very beginning. All Citadel employees, including recent grads, are expected to bring new ideas to the table and find ways to turn them into action. Every day at Citadel, I am surrounded by incredibly smart and passionate colleagues who are focused on excellence.”


“The three words that I would use to describe the firm’s culture are meritocracy, innovation, and hustle. I am excited to work for a firm that values these characteristics and emphasizes the critical role that they play in its success.”


“Citadel has great perks, including a speaker series featuring top authors and entrepreneurs, we participate in a number of team sports, volunteering and community programs. We have a very generous tuition reimbursement program, access to a gym and healthy meals at the office. Often we have access to cultural and sporting events that we attend with our teams and others across the firm.”
