    Pros

    Amazed by the talent around(few of them are IIT ians), lot of opportunities to learn
    You name a latest technology, you will find it implemented here- kafka, java 1.8, hadoop, AWS, scala etc
    Good worklife balance
    Adjudged best broker in 2018 in UK
    Free fruits and snacks

    Cons

    This company is not for everyone, especially guys coming from services industry would find it very tough, There is no training available to understand domain which is very complex to understand. You are expected to understand everything all by yourself,
    Dont join if you dont like stock market , business is very complex.

    Advice to Management

    More trainings should be available especially on the domain.
    Goals are not clear, tough to grow up the ladder for senior people
