    Pros

    Was a great place to work at before all the top talent left for better pay Good stepping stone for new developers / fresh graduates to gain experience at before moving to a different company Great work-life balance

    Cons

    Top talent that have been rearchitecting the system have all left in search of better pay There is no engineering direction as nearly everyone in senior leadership positions is an incompetent holdover from the early days of BT Developers are treated like second-class citizens in comparison to the “moneymaking” traders

    Favoritism takes precedence over Experience and Knowledge.

    Pros

    Good benefits/pay/bonus structure. Worked at this company for several years and it had a flat structure with an open door policy where you could share ideas, collaborate on initiatives and be transparent about what is working well or what can be improved.

    Cons

    Adding hierarchical structure to an org when unnecessary causes people to lose faith in the management team as you have to go through several chains of command to get your point out. Also, if you are in the good books of the mgmt. team and you hang out with them after hours for an outing or a drink, they will promote you regardless of whether or not you are fit for the job role. Watch out for folks that are in the wrong seat and negatively influence the mgmt, team and turn tables against you.
