    Pros

    Free food, very intelligent coworkers.

    Cons

    -Long hours expected on a daily basis. Management has a tendency to associate passion with the number of hours you put in. You are compared against the passion level of your teammates quite frequently. -Some teams have a modern, bleeding-edge thought process behind their tech. Other teams are old-fashioned in methodology. -Teams are heavily siloed which makes simple tasks drawn out and tedious. Overall the work is soul-sucking and involves little to no free thought. If you enjoy variety in your work or are even remotely creative, look elsewhere. Most employees move horizontally within the firm rather than upward. Staying motivated might be the biggest challenge you'll face while working here.

    Pros

    Good perks, free food, generous vacation time, i defiantly made life long friends from the co-workers

    Cons

    Unrewarding work, long hours, low pay, and growing responsibilities as more workers leave for better pay/opportunities. Company has an odd corporate vibe despite preaching openness and being 'flat'. Hard to stay motivated to give your all and want to stay here long term.

    Pros

    Fun work environment Awesome exposure to cutting edge technology Cool Projects Constant food and free lunch are a nice touch. Gym and showers on site.

    Cons

    Flat Management Structure, no real room to grow Constantly doing internal reorganization of teams and leadership Long hours expected. Your pay is for 50 hours a week. Pay is low when comparing to other trading firms They push a lot of the nice to have things as huge benefits to make up for low compensation.
