    Pros

    Good people, strong technologies, people with vision

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, short attention span, shifts in strategy

    Advice to Management

    You're hiring some top leadership based on past experiences in Forex, which is good, however, if the experience was with a largely failed broker you won't have success to leverage, but failure.

    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 Management

    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.
