    I have been working at Tower Research Capital LLC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    Lots of snacks and celebrations with food and drinks makes staying in shape tough!

    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.
