    Pros

    Good business model
    Kitchen area
    Plenty of clients

    Cons

    Too many group hires leads to factions
    Unstable management. People come in, stay a bit, install their friends and leave
    Your career depends not upon skill, merit or hardwork but having the right connections
    Employees not respected, viewed as perishable items with short shelf life
    Too many programmers without any management experience are left free to make management decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting people hire their friends or old colleagues & create a fair environment.
    Realize that software creation or programming and delivery of service are distinct responsibilities and most people will not do both well.
    With periods of no management things are bound to suffer for that very reason, you don't need to find another reason


  2. "Stay away from this place unless you want to work with less than mediocre people"

    Pros

    FXall is a public company and people are working really hard and long hours to make things happen. People try their best to support the technology and production.

    Cons

    small company with more politics than you would see in a big organization. Lots of fingerpointing and nothing gets done. A lot of tech debt and poor code quality. High turnover in senior leadership (many CTOs) and people that can make a difference. Company values are only on paper and nobody is living them.

    Advice to Management

    Get people in that can make a difference and are able to change things. Try to keep the good people and let go of the ones that drag everybody else down.
