Cons
  • Doesn't seem to be clear direction from senior management (in 4 reviews)

  • There were not many roles that had potential for me to move into, and even in my own role, I had a hard time asking for more challenging work (in 2 reviews)

    I worked at Investment Technology Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    ITG is leader in the trading technology. Lots of smart, hardworking, supportive colleagues. It helps to have a reputable firm on your resume
    Depending on which product groups you for there is room to be creative in designing new trading solutions
    Relaxed culture compared to most Wall Street firms

    Cons

    There are far too many reorganizations
    Doesn't seem to be clear direction from senior management
    Difficult to move up or into a new role
    No formal training for new inexperienced hires

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to restructure as little as possible. Its very disruptive to the everyone's work and moreover its very confusing when changes are not well communicated. Try to take more advice from the lower level employees and middle management to really understand the internal issues better.

    Pros

    loose structure means if you're good at what you do you can do what you want to improve things in your group.

    Cons

    they work to kill creativity and drive of their employees. management will lie to you in order to make you do what they want. don't fall for it. talk to your fellow employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    dont lie to employees and then tell them not to work on extra projects on their own time and then wonder why you have a hard time getting anyone to do anything you say.
