    Pros

    Great location, great office, some really great people when I started. Would love to have stayed on and grown with company

    Cons

    New management came and cleaned house with no regard to employment levels. This started as a small company and was bought by a larger one with a long history. Upper management at the older company hardly changed any processes in the decades of doing business.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful of market fluctuations and regulations. This will come and haunt you in the future. Be proactive with the exchanges and any new requirements they deliver.

    I have been working at Lime Brokerage LLC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to begin a career (lots various technologies and projects)
    5 weeks vacation and relaxed sick/working remote policy
    Fun people. Both inside and outside the office.

    Cons

    Politics. Politics. Politics. Lime has more politics than company 10 times the size
    Arrogance of some engineers and engineering as a whole
    Lack of communication across teams (leads to a lot of duplication of work)
    Poor vision and lack of direction
    People get stuck in undesirable projects for years
    No chance for any sort of advancement

    Advice to Management

    Mix things up!!! Have people work on new things and on different teams to get rid of the status quo. Set a clear vision for the company. Set a clear vision for a unified engineering team.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Waltham, MA

    Pros

    Vacation time (5 weeks)
    Casual Environment
    Good co-workers with high technical skills
    Interesting work

    Cons

    Pay
    Engineering treated as the outsourced team for sales in NY, not as equal
    Bad or lack of management lead to bad and delayed products

    Advice to Management

    Instead of listening to your middle managers, go down to the trenches; some of the middle managers are completely oblivious and don't know what day-to-day situation is anymore. Be clear about rewards and paths to promotions to retain employees.

    Benefits were good, flexible and generous time off policy, good engineering culture. Good working environment. Interesting software development challenges. Opportunity for employee trading account.

    Cons

    Poor communication between NY based management and Waltham based engineering. Lack of direction and delay in key hiring decisions like product management and sales.

    Pros

    Interesting opportunities do come up.

    Cons

    The people and culture leaves a lot to be desired. Holding too high of an opinion of oneself does not lead to good communication and cooperation.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to speak with your employees and try to actually help when a problem arises. Instead of "talking" about solutions actually "acting".
