Negative Outlook

I worked at Cutler Group LP full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

If you're male and into drinking, sports, and poker, Cutler will be a good cultural fit. Should have an aggressive, Type A personality and like winning.

Cons

You'll have a boss that doesn't follow through on promises or keep you informed of the status of your projects. Coworkers aren't openly hostile but will take advantage of you if they can. You will be ostracized if you don't have a winner-takes-all value system.

Advice to Management

This company desperately needs to hire a real manager.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. The fellow employees are easy to get a long with, and the company has a positive atmosphere. People want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    The business is difficult and has gotten harder over the years. Make sure this is the business you want to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Great job creating a positive work environment. In a difficult industry, you have done a good job of making a nice place to work.

    I have been working at Cutler Group LP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good environment where everyone can openly talk about ideas. Owner of the company works 20 feet from everyone and is always available for questions. Not a typical high pressured finance environment. Instead, more focused on intellectual discussions and ways to improve efficiency. A very good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Probably like this almost everywhere but the bonuses are discretionary, based on how you and the firm did. Personally, I would like to agree on a percent of profit before the year. Overall, bonuses have been fair with opportunities to make good money.
