Pros

Very friendly place to work,
All the equipment I could ever need possibly need was provided
Good benefits and perks
Chance for travel

Cons

Poor communications, especially from management (both on tactics and strategies)
Management would not listen to staff ideas
Working hours could be a bit anti-social at time for life outside work

Advice to Management

Talk to your staff
Do not think that making some one do a few extra hours in the office makes you a better manager, doubly so when you do not have a few extra hours work for them to do.

    Pros

    Tradeweb's electronic fixed-income platform is used by all major banks and also by lots of other banks and asset managers. So it's a well established brand. As Tradeweb can still be considered a start up, the atmosphere is "relaxed" and there is also no official dress code (important to some people). Good place to get to know the business of an ECN.

    Cons

    The learning curve is steep. But to be honest, after six months you know what you're supposed to know (of course depending on the department you're working in). The knowledge you gain is specific to Tradeweb's trading systems and other products, hence very narrowed.

    Advice to Management

    As a rather small company, listen more to staff and involve them in a moderate way in projects so they are for a couple of hours (weeks/months) challenged and can contribute to the companies growth. Otherwise you are on the 'wrong' way to establishing a corporate culture for a small company which lives of their innovations.
