    Great way to learn about the breadth of fixed income, but only at a very high-level.

    Good place to work for, but...

    Pros

    Tradeweb's electronic fixed-income platform is used by all major banks and also by lots of other banks and asset managers. So it's a well established brand. As Tradeweb can still be considered a start up, the atmosphere is "relaxed" and there is also no official dress code (important to some people). Good place to get to know the business of an ECN.

    Cons

    The learning curve is steep. But to be honest, after six months you know what you're supposed to know (of course depending on the department you're working in). The knowledge you gain is specific to Tradeweb's trading systems and other products, hence very narrowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a rather small company, listen more to staff and involve them in a moderate way in projects so they are for a couple of hours (weeks/months) challenged and can contribute to the companies growth. Otherwise you are on the 'wrong' way to establishing a corporate culture for a small company which lives of their innovations.

    Fun place to work, but there are negatives

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  City of London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in City of London, England (UK)

    Pros

    Very friendly place to work,
    All the equipment I could ever need possibly need was provided
    Good benefits and perks
    Chance for travel

    Cons

    Poor communications, especially from management (both on tactics and strategies)
    Management would not listen to staff ideas
    Working hours could be a bit anti-social at time for life outside work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your staff
    Do not think that making some one do a few extra hours in the office makes you a better manager, doubly so when you do not have a few extra hours work for them to do.
