    Great Active Trading Tool

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Plantation, FL

    ProsAgile development environment. Great opportunities to learn and grow. Learning is encouraged and there are company programs to reimburse for certifications and classes

    ConsPromotions are rare and people tend to keep their jobs for a very long time so there are very few openings to get into the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the growth and refinement of a great company

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great if you're young and single

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood place to learn cutting-edge technologies.

    ConsLack of documentation makes it difficult to understand a lot of the product concepts. You should be comfortable with securities trading terminology. Bonuses are not paid in cash, but in company stock which does not fully vest for several years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Where Talent goes to die!

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Plantation, FL

    ProsEmployees are the same age..new hires arrive happy and clueless. Ping-pong table and music instruments help waste the day

    ConsCompany is suffering the Steve Balmer effect. TS rewards tenure, so the company is run by paycheck collectors and incompetent Mgmt. The company has been and still is dying a slow death. There is no future here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace management asap!! Hire competence and individuals that actually understand the business.

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

    Meh.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits, smart people. Management really cares about individuals and takes good care of them.

    avoid like plauge

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)

    Prosbusiness casual dress code everyday.

    Conspeople don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe place is running around with idiots. Those who have been there long enough are lunatic, just like the scientist A Killian in Iron Man 3, people with sick mind. They will find happiness from you being torture or in pain.

    The talented folks will never be able to fight thur the mud around the place.
