    I worked at Jane Street full-time

    Pros

    The food was always good, as were the benefits and the compensation. The company makes money, they are certainly good at that.

    Cons

    They were not innovative from a technology perspective. The company is run by a set of partners, that work at the company, but you are not allowed to know who they are. It has a very weird culture.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you are making money, doesn't mean you are doing things right. Being self-reflective can make for a better work environment.
