    I worked at Direct Edge ECN as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    - 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.

    Cons

    - 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 ManagementAdvice

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