    I have been working at ITG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is great, management is willing to help you learn, they offer wellness events for employees, hold many charity events.

    Cons

    Multi-timezone teams make for slightly troublesome communication, large company means sometimes depending on other teams to complete work before being able to continue on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Allow developers to be innovative and make mistakes, that is the best way to learn to do something without inhibiting creativity.

    I have been working at ITG full-time

    People are nice and professional. There are very knowledgeable senior developer that you can learn from. Work-life balance is excellent. Flexible hours. Managers are very reasonable and don't have unrealistic expectations.

    Salaries are lower than average. Very rare team-building activities during and off-work. Depending on the team/role might end up doing mainly support and maintenance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in technology. Organize more off-hour team-building activities.

    I worked at ITG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hours are very reasonable and the pay, although not nearly on par with traditional wall street firms, is good for a job where you can be out by 6 every day.

    Cons

    Sterilized environment. They went way politically correct after the SEC violation and it kills the fun. Because it's such an average corporate environment there are a lot of middle aged Directors that really don't do all too much.

    Advice to Management

    Cull the hard-on for political correctness and gratuitous diversity and start focus on genuinely building a team of people that enjoy working together.
