Pros

the pay and the name.

Cons

very mediocre employees, no guts. This isn't sell side, this isn't buy side. It's just back-office. A lot of churn for new employees in the company, the lifers there obviously are just clocking the hours. Also I might add way too many indians and asians in the technology area. Hard to get communicate through their thick accent sometimes.

Advice to Management

Stop treating it like a 9-5 job and then panicking when its crunch time.

    Pros

    Great benefits, young and fun environment. A lot of exposure to different market players and environments- hedge funds, PMs, traders, etc.

    Cons

    There is very little time spent on building a skill set that can be transferred, depending on career goals and past experience it may not be a great springboard to buy/sell side or front office finance. Those who have worked on the street in general do better and gain credibility quickly with clients as opposed to the "fresh out of college" reps that are rushed through the process.

    Advice to Management

    Provide additional "market player" training to make job a bit more relevant.

    Pros

    Very steady flow of challenging, customer-driven work. You're constantly given new things to work on that inspire you to find creative ways to solve the problems put to you. Also, being privately held seems to make for greater job security.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is't so good. Culture has many holdovers from the finance industry, making for a very non-touchy-feely environment...doesn't feel like a traditional technology culture.
