I have learned a great deal at Tradebot about many things: technology, market structure, team collaboration, and more.

Pros

The compensation is outstanding and there really is great work-life balance. Everyone you work with is highly intelligent. Leadership encourages innovation. If you like bureaucracy, long meetings & TPS reports, Tradebot is not for you.

Everyone at Tradebot embraces technology. There is no limit to the amount the company will spend on technology. If there is a chance that a new piece of hardware will improve a process, it gets approved & purchased.

Lunch is brought in daily & core hours are 7:30 - 3:30.

Cons

Everyone is highly competitive, which creates a pretty intense environment at times.

The gift matching program was great - please bring it back!

    Pros

    Tradebot is not for everyone. You have to be self-motivated, ambitious, hardworking, and looking to grow and learn. If you are these things, this place is a dream come true. The company is full of very smart and motivated people, and there are many opportunities to learn new things. There is very little bureaucracy and a big focus on rapid execution.

    However, if you're looking for a place to just punch the clock, do your work, and get a salary without having to push yourself too hard then you will not do well here. This is not a Sprint, Cerner, or H&R Block.

    Tradebot recruits the best and brightest and has fantastic compensation (at least on the technical side, I don't know what the traders make).

    Cons

    While a very enjoyable place to work, more could be done to make it more "fun".

    Pros

    Family friendly hours. Great pay. Interesting problems to solve. Willingness to spend on technology R&D.

    Cons

    Everyone here was the top of their class, so they all think they deserve to be paid the most. It can be tough for some to adjust to being just one among many other bright folks.

    The structure of the bonus pool is wacky. The owner tells everyone money doesn't matter to him anymore, but then he takes nearly all of the profit for himself. He's pretty dishonest about pay, but most of us here see through his self-deception.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loved the idea someone else posted -- start the gift matching program again. If money doesn't matter to you anymore, why are you hoarding it?
