    Pros

    The only one that I can account of is the free lunch you are entitled to. But guess what, you are supposed to eat it at your desk ( which is the whole point of it being free) and if you dare to leave you will be attacked by disapproval looks

    Cons

    -disrespectful management - you will get yelled at for things such as the way you arrange your own desk, the shrift you use etc. You will be constantly treated as being incompetent and worthless.

    -on your own - This dept is a bunch of people that happen to work together ( very far from team). You are not supposed to ask questions. if you dont get something it's your own fault, don't expect to recieve support. On the contrary, asking for one will put you faster on the unemployment bentch than you think ( happened to a colleague)

    -Zero employee morale - basically 90% of the treasury team leaves within a year ( true statistics). Main reason - management that creates a sick environment, comparable to a concentration camp.

    To sum up, do yourself a favor and don't even bother apply. You will not only lose your time but hurt your career and health. Don't do it! There are so many better companies out there ( happen to work for one now) that will put a lot more value on you and your career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First day on the job I was told " If you think this is a place where you can chat around with colleagues, you are not int he right place" Turned out to be the total true. I have no other comments.

    I worked at Interactive Brokers

    Pros

    relaxed atmosphere, helpful coworkers and good benefits. the staff is placed in an effective way, so everyone has to work hard

    Cons

    not sure about the location, the wait between interviews are so long. the initial test took about an hour to complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire people with better education background; make sure the interview process is more structured. otherwise, like the interview style and the general manner.
