    I worked at Tower Research Capital LLC full-time

    Pros

    Very smart people
    Autonomy to get your work done
    Nice work atmosphere

    Cons

    The main office is pretty dated and cramped. Hope to get placed in 148 if you're based in NYC

    I have been working at Tower Research Capital LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Tower has provided me with a wealth of opportunity. The firm is continuing to develop and it's super exciting to be apart of an environment full of collaboration. Additionally, the culture and the people are top notch. We host various events for cross-departmental relationship building and I can honestly say I learn something new everyday from incredibly smart individuals.

    Cons

    Lots of free food/drinks, so its easy to snack! That said, Tower offers a free gym membership to employees, so luckily, you can work it off!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow junior members to have a voice in meetings. Its good for moral and for their career progression!

    Pros

    Great people, friendly culture, not your regular HFT

    Cons

    There is a huge difference between how different trading groups operate.
    Some groups have very little mentoring.

    Advice to Management

    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    I worked at Tower Research Capital LLC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A great abundance of statistics and CS people with a lot of knowledge

    Cons

    Very segmented - trading teams do not work together. However, generally speaking, the interview for the company is done by different people in different teams so to join the company you are evaluated by several people on different teams, and this makes it possible to have a fairly level knowledge entry level.

    Advice to Management

    None really; more parties!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Tower Research Capital LLC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is one of the best places to work at. High salary, good and relaxed work environment, open communication with all the team members. What more a guy can ask for?

    Cons

    Maybe a little too comfortable for technical persons. Rest is fine. No cons to list as such.

    Advice to Management

    After my intern period ended, there was no communication from the people in the management. Even though, I tried contacting some of them just as a friend/acquaintance
