No opinion of CEO

Pros

- Nice people for a trading job
- Good hours
- Relaxed atmosphere as long as you are making money
- Potential to learn, and colleagues that want to help you learn

Cons

- Lots of pressure if you are losing money
- Compensation decisions seemed opaque, you get the feeling you are making a fair amount relative to your profit/loss but you wonder whether you aren't

Advice to Management

The training program is great, don't change it a bit... but you should consider recruiting from more schools. There is a lot of talent out there you are missing by only advertising your company in a few places.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The hours here are reasonable; most people work around a 60 hour week with differences depending on the trading desk. Not exactly the best place for advancement, as it is a relatively small company.

    Cons

    LD's Human Resources department is notoriously slow and ineffective. Job offers were given almost 2 whole months after the interview with no word in between. Advancement is difficult as it is a small company with few upper level jobs open.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, not a bad place to work; the culture is very segmented depending on the desk. Changes to consider would be more HR changes than anything else.
