    Pros

    I joined Saxo 6 months back and can clearly say that this is one of the best career moves I have made. Reading the previous reviews I was sceptical of joining the place but then I spoke to few friends there and understood the place better.

    The only captive in India where you can have Front to Back Investment Banking Tech exposure at a single office
    World class front office platforms – show me any other place in India where you can build such a clean, elegant software
    Presence of Business and Data Operations team

    If your aim is to learn and enrich yourself without entering into unnecessary squabbles, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Some admin policies may change
