    I have been working at Integral Development full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    + Finance (foreign exchange) gets a bad rap, but Integral is far from boring and they are wearing the white hats to foster community, open markets, and improve price transparency.
    + Your work affects billions and billions of dollars traded daily.
    + Smaller size means start-up flat org where you'll be working with everyone from the CEO on down.
    + There's a nice absence big-company political BS.
    + The company works hard to take care of you from great benefits to food.
    + The company's not perfect, but it really is chock full of great people. After many years at Integral, I've only had two colleagues I don't respect (and both are no longer with the company).

    Cons

    - It's finance so you're not saving the world.
    - Smaller size means that you might not have time in the schedule or gobs of resources to do some things you want to do.
    - Finance is highly cyclical, making for high highs (awesome) and low lows (not as awesome).

    Advice to Management

    Improve communications down to the rank-and-file, maybe less big communication events and more informal "stand-ups".

    I worked at Integral Development full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    none still searching for a long time...

    Cons

    too much,

    . company is shrinking every day, if the company is great as others claim why there
     is so much attrition
    .there is no transparency what soever, worst possible management culture
    nepotism encouraged.
    .hire only h1-b
    . more product managers than engineers
    . projects that do not earn revenue are kept while people are let go.

    Advice to Management

    do not pay people to post good reviews, people who are posting good reviews please be realistic. the company is dying so any advice wont make a difference.
