    Toxic Culture and blatantly anti- LGBTQ

    Jul 14, 2022 - Trader 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Compensation and WLB is decent as well as the amenities and perks

    Cons

    People are brutally rude in the office and do not hold back in screaming profanities etc. while trying to get a point across. I also felt that there was 0 support for LGBT and minority groups in the office and I along with many others who identify as LGBT were scared to make that known due to people using slurs regarding these groups of people rather commonly. Additionally. management and seniors tend to discriminate in bonuses and other things towards people of these groups.

    I like working here

    Dec 11, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Transparent and honest communication. The atmosphere of working for the same goal. There's generally a fair amount of trust and goodwill. No pressure to stick to long hours if you don't want to. Great high-frequency options data. I've seen some comments about the lack of gender diversity, but I think things have been changing for the better.

    Cons

    The statistical/mathematical modelling is somewhat lacking, and it might be challenging to grow in those aspects while working here. Some traders have an aggressive communication style, which can be draining and unhelpful, especially if you share it. Might be a common theme in the industry. We've got a few young pestiferous traders on the floor.
