    Pros

    - Good pay
    - Excellent management. Managers are always looking to help you out in anyway and listen to your issues if you have any.
    - Excellent feedback system
    - If you're interested in more of finance and less of technology, this is the perfect place to be

    Cons

    - Too much of context switching. You'd have to switch between supporting users, handling production issues and doing your project work. The switch is so often that you don't feel a sense of accomplishment of a task by the end of the day.
    - There's very little to learn being a technologist. You'd learn about finance and the markets, but your technology learning curve flattens pretty quickly.
    - Very bad work life balance. People tend to come in by around 10 and stay back till 8. Though the managers are perfectly ok by you coming early and leaving early, you wouldn't feel good about leaving early cuz almost the entire team would still be there working.

    Advice to Management

    - It would be great if you could cut down the context switching and make the employees focus on a single task at a time. I believe they would be more efficient and happy that way.
