    Pros

    Fantastic support for continuing education, excellent location, interesting work, good benefits package inc private healthcare, open pay reviews, clear bonus structure. Supports the community and encourages involvement with local schools and charities.
    10 week training program to get you up and contributing the minute you join your team.

    Cons

    Long Hours, High Pressure, Atmosphere occasionally can seem unsupportive, uses in-house tech rather than common architectures/databases, which can be frustrating to some. Not ideal if you are more interested in Quant-style work, or disinterested in the finance industry.

    Advice to Management

    Better support for Technical Leads/Managers.

  2. Great place to work, top heavy with sr managers, no titles!
