Company Review

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at MarketAxess

ProsGood work life balance, save for IT
Competitive compensation

ConsChange averse, fear of bold initiatives..."what if the clients don't approve?"
Myopic viewpoints, thinking in the short term
Culture of distrust
Very little knowledge sharing, and feedback is scant
Willing to entertain new ideas and talk about innovation, but action is rarely taken to support it.
Focus is on minutia, and not critical matters

Advice to Senior ManagementMake communication more bilateral, especially on the strategic level. The C-level open door policy seems to be more of an espoused value rather than one that is enacted.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
