I have been working at Tower Research Capital LLC full-time (Less than a year)
I get to work with a great team of very smart and driven individuals. There is a lot of opportunity to work on projects that really interest you. I also get a sense of pride from working for a leader in the HFT world. Side note: you can't beat Tower's rooftop and awesome parties!

Advice to Management
Even though we have relatively frequent Town Hall meetings, it would be good to hear more from senior management, even if informally. The more communication the better.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2017.
The office location was easy to find. Parking was easy. Group interview. one focused on profile of company, position and hiring. the other focused on skill set. I showed them my pro forma. It went good. They said they'll contact me next week.
