    I worked at Interactive Brokers

    Pros

    If you perform well, you will be promoted.
    Nice offices
    Colleagues are friendly
    modern computer equipment
    free lunch is provided

    Cons

    You can hear a pin drop. Employer does not want employees to chat with each other in the workplace because that means that they are not working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the little guy. The smallest decisions take too long to be made because they have to be approved by top management.

    I have been working at Interactive Brokers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interactive Brokers dispenses with office politics and maneuvering, and presents the opportunity to work for a true meritocracy. If you are a senior developer ready to bring coding expertise and elbow-grease to the table, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    It would be great if there was a greater variety of free drink choices for people who don't drink coffee - do there really need to be 12 different blends of coffee?
