    SF office - A nice place to have a job, a terrible place to build a career

    Pros

    Catered lunches, reasonable pay, good bonuses, great location in the Transamerica Pyramid financial district, New York market hours, benefits are okay...but geared toward mid to later career traders/ upper-middle to upper class incomes

    Cons

    Only hires extremely overqualified candidates, absolutely no career growth, a lot of micromanagement, no 401k retirement contribution for employees, not a place for early career - young people will work hard and be expected to carry more of a workload than their tenured coworkers

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and let them grow with the company, promote from within- it builds morale and encourages both teamwork and healthy competition... Else, you will continue to lose extremely intelligent and competent young employees

    Pros

    Very good compensation. Great quarterly bonus. Free lunch and great people to work with. Lots of perks. You learn a lot.

    Cons

    Working East Coast hours when you're on the West Coast. Long hours from 5:30am - 3:30pm. No matter how hard you work it doesn't seem to be enough. Very stressful environment work with traders. Management expects a lot of you.

    Advice to Management

    Give praise more often for those who works hard.
