    Pros

    It was a good place to work until the company got taken over. New Management did not honor the previous traditions.

    Cons

    Management was not able to find the fine balance between the old culture vs the new culture.

    Advice to Management

    Consider retaining staff with institutional and industry knowledge.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere with some really good people to work with. Good benefits provided when you start. Overall nice office environment.

    Cons

    The people who were there with seniority seemed to be clique-ish. It seemed like there was no room for professional growth. For a small company it seemed big, not a lot of interaction between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Work on team building and get senior management more involved with all employees. This place could have been awesome if the atmosphere was better.

    Pros

    Good exposure to buy/sell side clients on wall street. Younger team with decent social environment. Learn a lot related to electronic markets.

    Cons

    Salary isn't as competitive as buy/sell side firms. People tend to be very busy so you must fend for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a stronger career management program, and shift a larger portion of the variable compensation to base base.

    Plenty of technology around if you want to learn, every team has something you can pick up. Exposure to Development, Business, IT Operations.

    The Chicago office always affected by New York turf protections despite the technology brain trust and skills being mostly with the Chicago staff. Since being bought, everything being relocated to Atlanta.
