    Cons

    -a complete and utter lack of innovation
    -ideas are stolen from new traders who are then let go
    -ancient technology
    -ancient technology infrastructure
    -inability to execute on initiatives
    -very below average compensation
    -inexperienced leadership
    -bad CEO
    -very political
    -bad reputation on the street
    -below average profitability

    Advice to Management

    Understand that the place is being run into the ground. Fundamental and big changes are needed to grow or at least get back to a baseline. Until then this place will bleed. Current leadership and management does not have the understanding or experience to make this happen. Time to throw them all out.
