    I have been working at OANDA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    • Some of the smartest people I ever met.
    • Correction (There is no lunch twice a week for quite some time now.)
    • Breakfast Mondays, Dinner Tuesdays, Lunch Wednesdays
    • A lot of perks, you can view them in our recruitment site.

    Cons

    It's too bad some people feel so negatively about management in the marketing team. I can understand some individuals are frustrated about their managers, however there are no perfect work environments.

    Just a note to the individual who claims to be a current employee. There are a few points you have mentioned in your review that tell me that you have not worked here within the last 6 months. Please do not post that you are a current employee. It makes the current team look bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Currently our managers do work to get the best experience for us to the best of their ability while also managing their everyday responsibilities.

    It is unfair to the managers and to the reader to be misinformed. Our managers ARE able perform.

    I have been working at OANDA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The developers there are smart, relaxed and fun to work with. It is an enjoyable work environment with a lot of interesting projects going on.

    Cons

    The management is reorganizing and the work environment is shifting. Things seem to be going downhill a bit but they may stabilize

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep in mind that developers work best in relaxed environments where they can enjoy what they do, feel rewarded by their hard work and don't have to worry about management too much.
