    I have been working at OANDA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free drinks and lunches and snacks. The people are great and historically, OANDA has been really good at keeping talent and treating their people well.

    Cons

    A significant amount of volatility in the company and almost no career growth opportunity within the customer service department. There is definitely a cultural divide and this causes many misunderstandings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out who the valuable people are and trust them.

    I worked at OANDA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending which team you join, you'll learn a lot. Culture under Michael Stumm used to be awesome. But I hear it is changing now.

    Cons

    Unless you do something really extraordinary, like have a smoke break with management, there is really no way to grow. Many people feel unappreciated despite putting long hours to execute the company vision. Thus getting recognition and raise is almost impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In technology business, your staff is your biggest asset. There are a lot of smart people in OANDA don't treat them like they are stupid.
