A lot of stress.

    Pros

    Management has done a fantastic job of attracting great talent from competitors and technology companies. Testament to the vision being described and results being achieved.

    Cons

    Execution can be spotty but if the firm can figure out a way to do all the thing they want to do, this could be a company for the future,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People who have no regards for the future of the firm have no business being around. It is time to weed out those who make it difficult for others to function.

    I have been working at Sun Trading full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sun is one of the few companies in financial services that is successfully expanding its presence and in doing so has created many opportunities for new and existing employees. I'm most impressed with Management's discipline - if efforts or opportunities fail to meet expectations they stop, review, evaluate alternatives and move on.

    Cons

    Although the markets have been experiencing low volume levels and low volatility, Sun has experienced success and is meeting its financial goals. In addition we are aggressively expanding across geography, asset class and product - as a result, we are very busy and the expectations are high for delivering value. A good problem to have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to openly communicate about the industry, regulatory environment. competitors and Sun's overall performance. The monthly meetings are very helpful to all employees.
