    I worked at Interactive Brokers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * Some managers and colleagues are helpful if you approach them with respect. * Some teams tackle interesting problems with state-of-the-art tools (depending on the manager) * You end up delivering production sotware quickly (and in frequent cycles). * IT teams often drive the business process, or have a strong influence. * You can learn some interesting stuff about the business itself too. * Fairly stable company with solid financial background.

    Cons

    The previous reviews said it all. Avoid this company if you think of yourself as a real Software Engineer --you'll be a coder guy, mostly following orders. I often felt somewhat depressed, and it didn't get better. What I'd like to highlight: * Managers have huge egos and can get tyrannical. They may give you direct orders, or disregard you. * New joiners can expect that some managers and colleagues might NEVER collaborate. * A complete lack of perspective (career development) and insights. You are TOLD what to do, and that's it. * Often obsolete technology platforms, which cause continuous headaches. Zero initiative to re-engineer stuff. * Your ideas and opinions are often overlooked. These huge egos are sure they know it better anyway. * Very few trainings to keep your knowledge up-to-date. * Work gets dull and boring after a few months, due to the reasons above. Once you've reached the plateau, there's not much to learn and grow as a developer... unless you want to deep-dive into the business.

    Advice to Management

    * A more open-minded approach would be necessary to attract and retain skilled people. Simply throwing some money at them won't help on the long run. * More effort (yes, your precious time and money!) to rethink and rebuild outdated legacy systems. * Collaboration over the rigid 1950s management sytle.
