I worked at Interactive Brokers

Pros

1 (optional) meeting each week
Lots of parking, office park shuttle service to train/HQ near train
Free lunch on the firm every day.
Flexible 40-hour week (7-3, 9-5, etc)

Cons

Development is emphasized...so many new versions of product sometimes causes inconveniences for other departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Drawbacks to the "Silo-ed" structure are mounting...what good are local optima? Mysterious development problems obviously spillover into marketing and sales depts.

    Pros

    Talented development staff. Everyone in the same "situation".

    Cons

    This entire organization is run by the delusions of one person... the people in customer service are good, but the systems that dictate the methodology is awful and unbending.

    The company seems more like a psychological experiment than a business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    haha...useless. It's Thomas Peterffy.... Take some value in the people who made you rich.

    learn and leave for another job

    Cons

    no incentives for innovation as no profit sharing or P&L related bonus
    no additional perks , no support for further education
    company sticks to only provide legal minimum vacation days
