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

    Pros

    - flexibility
    - opportunities
    - fun

    Working at OANDA is a lot of fun, because in general the people you get to work with are awesome. Fun-loving and creative people who have a lot of (typically at least) energy to do their jobs, and do it right.

    Cons

    - lots of legacy systems/etc to wade through

    We've built up quite a legacy of product and code and sometimes it can be daunting to wade through when things need to change, but there's lots of momentum and incentive to fix these things now, so it's exciting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The current change we're undergoing is worth it, and is seeing positive results. I think our future looks awesome.
