    I worked at Instinet for more than 8 years

    Pros

    For the most part, pay is solid but the benefits are like nothing else out there...that's a good thing! Was very rewarding both personally and professionally. I enjoyed my co-workers my entire 10 years at the firm and some are still quite close friends.

    Cons

    Marketplace has changed dramatically since 2010 and the early romance with Nomura started to wear thin. Layoffs should have happened earlier than they did, but when they did it was big (I should know). Many folks that are left are just looking over their shoulder and are not pursuing business like they should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't skim on technology like you did in the mid 90's. And keep the fear of god out there on the t-desk.
