I worked at Simplex Investments

Pros

I really enjoyed my time at Simplex even though I ended up taking a different job. It's a great place to learn options theory, and their technology and development team is top notch. If you're interested in algo trading, these guys can teach you a lot.

Cons

Simplex is a specialized firm that trades only equity options with no directional risk, and all strategies and ideas must fit that mold.

    I have been working at Simplex Investments full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Full IT staff in office, wonderful help desk. Top notch equipment available, and we hold weekly meetings about what other tools we could use throughout the trading day. Profit sharing, monthly performance bonuses. Daily Lunch included.

    Cons

    Just like any other company in the business: Fast paced and stressful. I come in to do as I'm expected: Make money. If you can't make money, you're not going to have a good time.
