    I worked at Liquidnet full-time

    Pros

    Decent work / life balance
    Friday lunch
    HR benefits are very good

    Cons

    Treated with suspicion by it's customers, company pursues ideas that are not in keeping with it's core strengths, senior management is overly and often unrealistically optimistic, very poor development team with old tech. Too likely to be disrupted by a smaller nimble competitor

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company! You're too small to do it alone

    I worked at Liquidnet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was an exciting organization to be a part of in the beginning. Fast paced, using the latest technologies, and many motivated coworkers.

    Cons

    Being a young employee, I was very hopeful and ambitious and did some of my best work here. Instead of rewarding my hard work, my immediate manager was humiliated and shoved aside, and then they spent the next 6 months making my life hell. They did it because I was a minority, young, and unmarried despite the results I delivered for them on an important project. As a result of this period I questioned my desire to be in my chosen field for many years. Fortunately I stayed but to anyone who is thinking of joining this company - STAY AWAY. The have done a lot of harm to a lot of good people and harmed careers as well as personal motivation. Liquidnet does not care about you if you can't produce and even if you can they'll use you until they have no use for you. They force their politics down your throat and twist how you think about the corporate world. Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    You are shameful. No amount of words can express how much regret you have caused me from joining your organization. If I knew the outcome I would have never become a part of your organization.

    I worked at Liquidnet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Salary, Good Snacks and Good Bonus - But, only if you are Jewish.

    Cons

    If you are not Jewish or if you know how to brown-nose senior management - you don't need to work.

    Advice to Management

    Why start a company only for Jewish?

    I have been working at Liquidnet full-time

    Pros

    Aside from the obvious: free beer, catered Friday lunch, amazing selection of snacks, fro-yo machine, slushy machine (which we occasionally spike), and frequent company sponsored parties, Liquidnet employs the most amazing people I have ever worked with. They are smart, funny and believe it or not, NICE! That is such a hard combination to come by in corporate America nowadays. I would recommend working here to anyone, back office and front office alike.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any, it is truly an amazing place to work.

    There were little to no cons about this company.
