I have been working at Index Exchange full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I've never seen (or worked at) a company that effectively practices what they preach. IX changed that. The CEO has previously said "we don't hire brilliant jerks" and this mentality of hiring positive, collaborative and forward-thinking individuals from the top-down has resulted in an incredible culture. Despite tremendous growth, the company has been effective in keeping culture and family values at its core. A few additional “pros” include:

- Incredible visibility and levels of interaction with CEO/executive team available for employees of all levels
- Great client roster
- Lots of room for growth
- Very social company – people are always hanging out, going out, celebrating the social media holiday of the day!
- Weekly Friday lunches/fully stocked kitchen

Cons

- While compensation and benefits are above average, some could still be improved (closed office holidays, added health & wellness support, etc)

Advice to Management

Keep prioritizing culture along with strategic product development and I have no doubt the company will continue to be a great place to call home!

    Pros

    - Amazing smart talented people
    - AMAZING culture
    - incredible opportunity for growth within the company
    -the company itself has had tremendous growth just over a few years which shows a lot about the company itself and the people that work here.
    - amazing guidance by the exec team, they want to see you succeed and they want you to do it with a smile on your face.
    - a lot of activities within the company so you're constantly learning and interacting with other people in the company
    - the events ROCK
    - free snacks
    -free lunch fridays ;)
    - could not be happier with this company, I have worked at other companies that could care less about the culture and the people that work there and this one DEFINITELY is the opposite

    Cons

    keep doing what your doing IX, even with the growth. No cons!
