    Pros

    Good Salary
    Ownership of tasks aka freedom to work without much supervision

    Cons

    Little career progression, feel like I need to move companies to progress
    Business/Sales force favored over IT too much for a 'tech company'

    Advice to Management

    Give stock awards to younger/new hires as incentive to stay with/work hard for the company. Market research may help innovation as opposed to reacting to market needs after the fact.

    I worked at MarketAxess full-time

    Pros

    -fairly relaxed culture, 8-5 is the norm
    -good benefits package
    -recognized brand in the sector

    Cons

    -mostly run out NY, little analysis or development done in Europe
    -little chance for career development because teams are quite siloed and a fairly small company
    -they took over Xtrakter/Trax but there's little overlap between the two. There's a lot of potential for shared gains but little has been done

    Advice to Management

    -spend more money on development/improvement of the Platform, not on client expenses
    -more linkages with Trax
