Pros

Great to new employees. Breakfast and lunch catered is a nice perk. Fun company outings.

Cons

Poor communication from upper management. Changes made with little or no concern or input from current staff. Direction low, expectations high, veiled threats and long hours. Nepotism high. Bonus plan very sketchy. Beware.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bridge the massive gap between member and non-members. Stop treating employees like replaceable machines. Try a little more team work and appreciation. That goes a long way.

    Pros

    1. The company is making a lot of profit. The position is well paid.

    2. Different desks are quite open. You can learn a lot of things about trading.

    Cons

    1. Complicated company politics. Different desks compete for resources.

    2. Bonus formula is non-transparent, and determined by PnL of your desk and other desks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a departure announcement when people leave the company.

    Employers have the right to know why their colleagues leave. Employers are human beings, not machines.

  2.
