    I worked at MarketAxess full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Work environment/culture is extremely energetic- everyone walking through those doors are excited to be here which is something rare. The positive energy makes you WANT to be here. Hours are always fair- my day was generally 830-530. Work keeps you busy but I would say I always had the perfect work/life balance. I always found I was appreciated for my hard work which was expressed during reviews/bonus/salary discussions....

    Cons

    The only con is that I had to leave this amazing company due to personal/relocation reasons.

    Pros

    Great new office at Hudson Yards. Great benefits. “Dress for your day” policy.

    Cons

    No real cons. Happy to work here.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if there was more opportunity to work from home for non-sales personnel. I understand that client facing employees should be in the city for meetings, client dinners etc. But the rest of us should have the option to work from home here and there. Even if it’s like one day a month.

    the company, even at its small size, is bloated. Senior employees are quick to throw junior employees under the bus to save face.
