    I worked at OANDA full-time

    Pros

    Positive on the work life balance front.

    Cons

    Poor strategic direction from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    There is very little value, otherwise it would have been sold. No client base, no recurring revenue, no noticeable IP, no product differentiator and 2nd rate mgmt team.

    I have been working at OANDA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    snacks and location is alright

    Cons

    Once you are here and see what they do and the poor managment, you will get a different story. Programmers make apps to take peoples money and make them loose. If you dont want to work were it's sleazy but get snacks to keep your mouth shut, then stay away.

    Advice to Management

    ??? why they dont listen

    Nice office environment with very good welfare and challenging management skills development on individual and as a team. Fast paced, fun and supportive role.
