    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you are a trader and want freedom to make your own decisions with minimal risk management or oversight, you are in.

    Cons

    The professionalism is non-existent. I would describe this place as worse then any I have ever experienced with more politics and lack of management then most.

    Advice to Management

    Respect. Give it and understand it if you want quality work from those supporting your core businesses.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Good payout %
    - Some good co-workers
    - Convenient location in midtown

    Cons

    - Very random process for who you sit next to (which can make or break your career)
    - Management out of touch with what's actually going on
    - Good traders do not necessarily make good managers

    Advice to Management

    Realize that just because somebody makes a lot of $ as a trader, that does not make them a competent manager.
