    Good experience in Hedge Fund Admin working with Derivatives, Bonds, Options, etc

    Pros

    You can work from home sometimes

    Cons

    Hours were absurd, I would not leave the office till after 11pm at times and had to work a lot of weekends. This was not because I was doing actual work, it was because they out sourced all of their technology and did not coordinate with their international counterparts for coverage for the most essential parts of the day, when our trade files went down to the PB's.

    This place had the highest turnover I had ever seen. Some new members would say they were leaving for lunch and never come back again. Moral was in the toilet, management was incompetent. They take on new funds before they even know how to reconcile the products leaving new employees with no experience to try to sort out IT issues and reconciliation issues with little assistance effecting the quality of service to hedge fund clients who many times would receive their NAV late and inaccurate.

    Pros

    This is a decent place to start a career if you can't really get your foot in the door anywhere else. Judging from the accounting and operations teams, they'll hire pretty much anyone.
    The people on the development team are genuinely nice and very intelligent.
    Good work life balance.
    Some exposure to hedge fund clients

    Cons

    Drastically underpaid
    Poor training
    Incompetent accountants and operations people.
    Slow to low advancement
    It seems like most of the development is now outsourced to India.
