Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Good work life balance, save for IT
Competitive compensation

Cons

Change averse, fear of bold initiatives..."what if the clients don't approve?"
Myopic viewpoints, thinking in the short term
Culture of distrust
Very little knowledge sharing, and feedback is scant
Willing to entertain new ideas and talk about innovation, but action is rarely taken to support it.
Focus is on minutia, and not critical matters

Advice to Management

Make communication more bilateral, especially on the strategic level. The C-level open door policy seems to be more of an espoused value rather than one that is enacted.

    Pros

    Cool place if you don't mind managers who give no direction or who will throw you under the bus.

    Cons

    Management wants an innovative, smart, high end team but puts superficial effort towards retaining high quality employees. In fact, the smart employees are the ones who decide to leave. Mediocrity thrives at Marketaxess. There is an enormous amount of turnover especially in IT (developers, business analysts). Beware about joining this place. They hate new people. There is a strata of employees who've been there for over 10 years and another one of people who've been there less than a year. The more senior people are so afraid of losing their jobs that they will make any newcomer's life miserable.
    The saddest part about Marketaxess is the general disrespect they have for former employees. You usually hear managers commenting about how former employees didn't know what they were doing (even interns).

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of people who've been there for over 10 years. They will bring the company down.
