    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits, excellent, driven, talented co-workers. If you find finance and software fascinating it would be hard to find a better match.

    Cons

    The environment can be stressful at times due to the push to get things to production quickly. Global financial markets happen constantly 24/7 (or almost) and you can be on call at any time.

    Advice to Management

    The culture is fantastic - with a lot of energetic, brilliant people driven to be honest and aggressive. I think that the management structure itself (at least in R&D) should be more aggressive about change; it seems to take years for areas with clear synergies to be moved between departmens.

    Great culture, great working environment. Food pantries are really good to relax from your work. You can balance your work and life well, not too much pressure.

    Cons

    Seems like career development is limited. Although the culture is great, but the transparency sometimes makes it "transparency"anywhere and anytime

    Beautiful office, great pay, good health benefits, free snacks, encourages participating in social causes, smart coworkers, lots of holiday days. Definitely a great place to work.

    Cons

    * issues with working from home
    * a lot of artificial deadlines and emergencies
    * getting increasingly bureaucratic as it grows
    * very senior management does not care about lower level

    Advice to Management

    * reduce the growing bureaucracy
    * make moving between teams easier
    * increase team spirit, and do not reduce perks that employees have gotten accustomed to as it reduces enthusiasm
