    Pros

    Great community and a great place to work. The benefits are top notch and the managers seem to generally care about the career future of their employees.

    Cons

    Work is all about self-starting, for good or for bad. If you don't try and create your own projects or find things to do, you will end up doing the things no one wants to do. While this is good for innovation, it makes the first few months on the job suck, as you won't know enough about the baseline to innovate anything.

    Advice to Management

    In finance, automation should be key. The analysts spend too much time doing things that a computer could take care of. Either purchase software to do some of the job or force internal engineering to develop new applications faster.
