    Smart people who may know how to trade but do not know how to manage

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits, work-life balance, little supervision so no one breathing down your neck.

    ConsNo management, no communication and no recognition of hard work. Absolutely no career path or room for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs other reviewers have stated, communicate. Get a real review system in place, with attainable ratings and peer reviews. Have a good review be reflected in salary and bonus. Have an open door policy and talk to your people. After a while it will not matter how good your trading strategies are if you have no one to execute, settle, run your IT, etc...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    What a joke, all about who you know rather when what you know!!

    Information Technology (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsHead trader in the U.S office very nice, if you want to survive in this company you have to make sure you hang out after work with the co-workers on a regular basis.

    ConsWhere do I start, very unorganized company. Place has no protocol or procedures on how things work. Manager's concern more about partying then advancing. Don't give people a chance to learn and quick to make judgement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire a manager in the IT field that has some skills or get him to take some mgmt classes on how to be a supervisor/manager.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Company decision making is controlled by traders, very poor planning.
