I worked at AKUNA CAPITAL full-time

Pros

High pay for juniors, lots to learn, smart people (ex-Optiver), a firm that is still making money, cool bosses (as long as you don't go overboard)

Cons

You don't really get more than one warning. People get let go very easily or leave, but I'm not sure if it's just Akuna or simply the industry right now. Afterall, it is the partners' money they're paying you. Industry isn't doing well, and the firm is not very technology driven.
