i used to work at a hedge fund last yr.... got laid off when a lot of our trades blew up... me and bigdog2 started up on our own... built up an algorithmic trading system... and now after 7 months we got some real office space right at the exchange... main benefits being

1) we have a professional setup, esp when dealing with clients

2) being that the machines running our automated models are right in the exchange, we can connect directly to the Equinox platform of globex and get better and faster fills on our trades (esp handy on spread trades)

I spent much time at Citadel... I hope you go for a better infrastructure.

I work for an OS vendor that hasn't been sold recently ;-)

Congrats on the new direction.
