Pros

A lot of enthusiastic people - and a lot of them quite young.
They are building things for the future and so there is quite some activity.

Cons

But then you realize that the old boy network and mentality is still present. In this day and age is mistifying that this can still take place. I mean look how inefficient you can be and how many mistakes will be made by hiring people who have no knowledge of the business you are trying to build. Just because they are your buddies ? For gods sake there is one PM who was a HR person before now responsible your next trading platform... really ?

Advice to Management

No advice really - other than stop beeing so arrogant. You really do not know what you are talking about.
