Everybody works hard and it feels like a team. - The work is interesting and challenging - The culture is one of humilty and friendliness, not big egos - The office and perks are amazing - We have strong ethical guidelines and stay away from gray areas that other financial firms would take advantage of - Everyone is treated fairly

    Cons

    - Can be a bit secretive at times, especially about pnl, though less than many other firms in this space

    Advice to Management

    If we can maintain this collaborative culture as the firm grows, there are many bright years ahead
