    Options firm runs lean company. This means there is a lot of responsibility, but a lot of capital available to you.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMore capital, less stranglehold on risk limits means you can hold smart positions other options firms aren't willing to stomach, which can mean high dividends if it pays out.

    ConsIt's also a pro: flat structure.

     

    pretty good, cool people, good culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prospeople are willing to help, flat structure, have a lot of flexibility, a great place to learn.

    Far Behind Competitors

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWell diversified in terms of products. Steep learning curve. Excellent location. Relatively short hours and ok health insurance coverage. Responsibility grows quickly. Lunch provided every day.

    ConsVirulent and threatening environment. Poor career development opportunities. Quick to fire employees. Glaring technology deficiency and over-reliance on third party vendors. No internal investment research or strategy group. Minimal investment in technology going forward; on the verge of being crushed by more technologically sophisticated firms.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
