    Pros

    Positive work atmosphere with smart, collegial people. Compared to large investment banks ITG is a much more pleasant environment, with hands-on teams who are generally supportive. Much lower level of office politics.

    Cons

    Still working through fallout from the 2015 SEC settlement, which bruised morale.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the core businesses and clients will reward you for it.

    The opportunities available for employees at ITG are great. The skills I have obtained here go above and beyond what I was expecting to learn when I first started.

    Cons

    There are none that I can think of.

    Pros

    Very nice coworkers and management. Many employees in the LA office have been there for over 10 years, and turnover is significantly below the average rate for the software industry. As far as technology organizations go, this is a relatively low stress environment with a good work/life balance. Coworkers are very willing to help each. We have sit/stand desks, and free drinks in the refrigerator.

    Cons

    Raises and bonuses have been underwhelming in recent years. Management is aware of this and appears to be sincerely working to improve the situation.

    There are limited opportunities for advancement in the LA office. The company is flexible about allowing transfers to New York, where most promotions take place.

    Advice to Management

    The new management organization appears to have good plans to turn the company around. Keep working towards those goals.
