I worked at Tower Research Capital LLC full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great work environment and smart coworkers.
The office located at the heart of NYC and has awesome roof deck to enjoy sunshine with your lunch. People at Tower are very bright while they are kind of laid-back compared to other financial firms. The culture makes all employers feel they belong to one big family.

Cons

Since this is a hedge fund, you cannot change the world of your friend. If you are more into making ordinary people's life better, this is not the place for you.

    I worked at Tower Research Capital LLC full-time

    Pros

    - Good (initial) compensation
    - If you join as a de facto trader/strategist, it's a good place to learn the business
    - You work with some of the smartest folks

    Cons

    - New hires are either put in trading or infrastructure development (either in the infra team, or as a support role within a trading team). They should clearly explain the differences between these profiles, and let the employees choose what they want to work on.
    - Depending on your job profile, you might not have much freedom in choosing your projects/carrying out your ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you can't accommodate work preferences of the new hires, then hire for multiple profiles on campus.
