    Pros

    Exciting business with significant upside potential, great team of smart and outstanding contributors, excellent merit-based performance rewards, an cool location at the foot of Wall Street in Manhattan, easily accessible for commuters from all over the NY Metro region.

    Cons

    Tight schedules to accomplish challenging objectives, though the challenges themselves are both intellectually stimulating and serve to build camraderie among the team. Sometimes limited resources with which to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving on systems performance and scalability, keep expanding on the number of exchanges served, explore opportunties to trade in other securities, keep setting the goals higher while improving upon the openness and timeliness of employee communications.
