    I worked at Direct Edge ECN as a contractor (Less than a year)



    - Working in the accounting department here, I was still able to achieve a great work/life balance.
    - Even though I worked here through a temp agency, everyone in the company was very supportive and respectful to me, especially my department.
    - I appreciated that it was generally easier to work with other departments here for projects I worked on.


    - Some employees could learn to better resolve conflicts and disagreements, but this can be a common occurrence at many other companies. This is the only true con I've recognized during my stay here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide employees with your established work/life balance and personal opportunities to grow professionally.

    Three levels of interview - department head/manager interview, group interview and interview with the company's CEO. Overall, I think the interview process is good and fair. In my case, I find it a bit challenging given the position I am applying for.
