What is a typical working day like at DRW?

Pros

It's a trading company so the pay is of course at the top of the market.

Cons

Management views employees as dollar signs and not as people and is hypercritical of subordinates but unable to take feedback. Work life balance is non-existent and work nights, weekends, and while on PTO is expected. There is not a lot of room for professional growth.

What is the work environment like at DRW?

Pros

The company is full of really incredible people and the environment they created is like none other. They treat employees really well, with tons of perks and opportunities to get really involved in the Montreal community. The work itself is challenging, very interesting and ever evolving. They are truly at the cutting edge of technology in the trading world, and they are afraid to invest in the continual build up of that.

Cons

Typical growing pains of a small company that is getting bigger and becoming part of a global presence. The management seems to be very engaged though and working to keep employees happy throughout this process.

Advice to Management

Keep focusing on your employees and the technology that got you to where you are today.
