    I have been working at Interactive Brokers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Opportunities to learn and to grow
    - Opportunities to use your brain and see the result. There are moments of a great intellectual satisfaction, which are important for me
    - No red tape. I hate meetings and there are almost none
    - Superb compensation
    - 100% free health insurance

    IB is for you if you like to work and to get well paid for it and do not need anything else. I well understand negative reviews but there are many other opportunities around. Find what is working for you. I found IB.

    I was stunned to see how many people are mentioning free lunch as a pro. Seriously? Is this important for you?

    Cons

    It is a soulless place for introverts. IB is a money making machine and we are part of this mechanism. It works well for me but it is definitely not for everybody.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up! Let's put our stock price to the sky.

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Interactive Brokers (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Absolute rubbish process of hiring, they have this non sense called Predictive Index where you got to select few words which describes you and what others think about you on which they Judge you.This guys don't bother checking your skills and experience .Please don't waste your time. It's not worth it .
