Review Highlights

Pros
  • Work-life balance is better than most but it means there is less work than really needed for the amount of people (in 12 reviews)

  • Good people - I know that's a cliche here, but the people are funny and fun to be around (in 4 reviews)


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)

    Pros

    ITG is a fast moving financial services company. Its a great place if you are intern, seasoned developer or veteran architect - there are enough interesting challenges on all technical levels. Great people, nice atmosphere, good salaries, perks and bonuses are part of the deal.

    Overall I had a great time at ITG and would highly recommend this place.

    Cons

    May become a "golden cage" after some time, limiting your career progress.

    I worked at Investment Technology Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated people. Everybody is helpful, even to co-ops. The company is very organized and well structured but at the same time very flat, theres no big power distance. Also cake fridays is awesome!

    Cons

    cake made me fat I think. No real downsides,

    Pros

    Large company with a small company feel. Company has tremendous growth potential given the recent collapse of some very large competitors. No capital at risk, so little chance of a blow up.

    Cons

    Some projects take a long time to get implemented or do not meet the client specs when they finally are. Technology good but not leading edge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it clear to the employees what they are expected to do to grow the business and how they get paid if they succeed.
