I have been working at caxton associates

Pros

You will get an oversized paycheck in exchange for your soul.

Cons

Back-office management is wholly incompetent. From the CFO to the Controller to the head of IT to the Operations manager, they're all in it for themselves. Management is not a concern for these people. It's all about getting themselves paid and rewarding the ass kissers. I've been to a few other places and I've never witnessed anything like this before. The only thing that I can come up with is that the founder Bruce Kovner must have said to the CFO: "Take care of the Princeton operations John. Your ONLY requirements is to keep me out of it. I am a trader, and our business is trading. I want it to be as if those cretins down there in NJ don't exist. In exchange for this you'll make 10 million a year, but I really want to operate as if they aren't a part of this company. I don't care about budgets, just keep me out of it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Retire. Haven't you made enough money? Are you that transparent?
