    Approves of CEO

    I worked at FX Alliance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    FXall has an extremely talented staff, a great customer base, strong product offering and free coffee. The CEO has an excellent view on where the industry is heading and is well connected to the banks that use the FXall platform.

    Cons

    At times, FXall is a stressful work environment. Many of the teams are too thinly staffed to achieve expected results or handle unanticipated challenges that arise.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a good job defining the plan. The key is to stick to the plan and avoid unnecessary fire drills.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FX Alliance.

    Interview

    Just to give a perspective, i come from a strong technical position from a HFT firm.

    They handout out a 30 min written test, taken out of an online java server side questionnaire. Get your own papers to solve them as they didn't supply them to me.

    If you clear the test, you will be interviewed by their technical cadre.

    The interviewers have a thick accent and uncommunicative , not a single smile. They seem to have a condescending attitude for others. I understand the difference between being proud of your system vs looking down on others.

    I guess the culture of the company shows up in the interviewers attitude - one of the interviewers (snr developer) ends with "okay, i have asked what i am told to ask. i will call the next interviwer" - seriously, are u following a written script!

    The second interviewer( technical manager) never had a clear flow of thought. he asks a question, probably, expecting a pre framed answer. When i try to logically reason out, he gets disinterested and jumps to a different question.

    Interview Questions

    • After explaining how i achieved zero fullGC, he says, "Aah, its all it is just -D configuration, no coding right?" :)   Answer Question
