    Pros

    Successful company - leader in financial services technology! I've been here for 5 years and I look forward to what 2015 will bring. Professional, friendly, team atmosphere. My manager has been very supportive of my career goals and has provided me with many learning opportunities. Senior management is very approachable and supportive.

    Cons

    I have no "cons" to note.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you've been doing - it works!

    Pros

    There are some nice people working in the company making the environment more bearable.

    Cons

    Strategy is either non existent or unknown by anyone not in the most upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time with the people running the company on a day to day basis to create a more cohesive environment. Allow a balance of work and family life for all not just senior management. Bonus should not be reduced if earned vacation time is used. Provide opportunity based upon tangible goals. Take the review process seriously. People want to improve and appreciate clear direction.

    Pros

    free coffee, however it is the worst coffee ever...

    Cons

    If you want to have a miserable life, please join Tradeweb Europe. There is nothing worth than to work in Tradeweb Europe. 25 people left TW in 2013, 13 so far and it is only August 2013.

    Tradeweb not only make your life miserable when you work in the company, also when you leave the company. When you joined there is a non-compete clause in your contract of employment, very well hidden, which means that you cannot work for a competitor of TW for the next 6 months... and TRADEWEB DID NOT EVEN PAY YOU FOR THIS... so, you will be quiting your job because your life is miserable, and after that, they dont allow you to work in any other competitor for the next 6 months. Of course, HR said: you can work in other place, I guess she thinks I can work in McDonals or Sainsbury....

    What a stupid move I made when I decided to join TW. Dont expect learning, or work-life balance, or leadership or career progression or a friendly environment. They know how to make your life miserable so while you work your azz.. off, they will be hiring former bankers for double or triple of your salary...

    Welcome to the jungle, welcome to tradeweb: Please read your contract of employment, and if there is a non-compete clause, do not sign it unless they agree to pay you while you cannot work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Life is too short, and the credit market is to small.... I was your employee, I might be your employer in the near future... and guess what....
