I have been working at Tradebot full-time

Pros

Close to 40 hours/week. Good starting pay for Kansas City but only for Kansas City.

Cons

No opportunity for advancement. No opportunity to lead a team. Minimal learning opportunities. You can get paid the same or much more at other trading firms and actual software companies with significantly more upside (and decent health insurance). Much of senior management is just waiting to retire and doesn't care about mentoring or objective assessment come bonus season.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to care.

    The obviously phony 5-star HR/VP reviews are humorous. People are leaving this company due to poor leadership & stress

    I have been working at Tradebot

    Pros

    Like others have noted, it starts and ends with the short work week.

    Cons

    Management integrity is nonexistent. For example, HR admitted to us that they "took control of Glassdoor" which is why a bunch of positive reviews appeared near the end of 2013 (just look for the ones with HR speak in the title or the lengthy "Pro" descriptions - these are plants). If a firm has to do that to attract people, think about what they're telling you in the interview and what it must actually be like to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just be honest with candidates and employees.
