    I worked at Tradeweb full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I love being able to work around truly passionate people who are ready to change the world. The culture is great, free snacks and food is big plus. I had the opportunity to take ownership of projects within my first month.

    Cons

    The hours are much longer than any other job I've worked in, but this is expected to change as we continue hiring more help and spent more on technology.

    Advice to Management

    Improve people relation and will get great work! i was not excited to see the company spend more and did not grow and mature and hope that we don't lose the strong culture we have now

    I worked at Tradeweb full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work benefits (including year end bonus) if you are in company if you are in management or business team. I feel sorry for technology guys working below Director level.

    Cons

    Too much pressure and extremely long hours. Majority of tech dept is full of unmarried H1Bs (low wage workers who can work 60+hours/week) and no new diverse talent is welcomed here. Old fashioned interview style and experienced developers (with GC/Citizen) will most likely be not selected. CEO, CTO, MDs and Directors are not going to held each other accountable, but blame on lower level.

    Advice to Management

    Lately, MDs are putting comments on Glassdoor asking current employees to send reviews to HR for improvement, however no MDs or Directors are hold accountable. In other words, we throw your feedback to bin. Advise to technology guys is to do homework before appearing for interview or accepting offer. Cannot give advice to management, as the real problem starts at CEO, shareholder and MD level.

    Pros

    CTO really gets technology and has a solid management team.

    Cons

    Relations between NJ and NY staff could be improved. Also, need more space in both offices, we are crammed in like sardines.

    Advice to Management

    Get more space before people leave due to overcrowding. Existing workspace not conducive to effective working practices.

    I worked at Tradeweb full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Has a significant chunk of the market, you will get good exposure to fixed income. Company is well positioned to succeed. Kitchens are usually well stocked and offices are clean. Most people are serious about the work they do and very capable. The atmosphere is generally positive and energetic.

    Cons

    Way too much focus on execution and sales rather than innovation. Tradeweb is a technology company. Couldn't emphasize this more - it's an electronic brokerage. Technology should be the sole focus of day to day, month to month, and year to year operations. Instead this is a sales company that can't seem to plan effectively more than a few months in advance. It's difficult to be rewarded for being creative and efficient vs. putting in extra time and knowing the right people. There's a culture clash between NY and NJ, sales people vs. technologists

    Advice to Management

    CTO/CEO must get involved with the day to day development of software. Go visit start-ups and import some of their behaviors and strategies. Slow down release cycles until you can prove to customers that you can release quality software with minimal critical bugs.

    I worked at Tradeweb full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Free snacks and breakfast
    - Decent commute for me as I lived in JC

    Cons

    - Application Support/ Production support working hours are very bad
    - Some degree of favoritism towards old timers
    - Hire and fire type of culture. Because of this, many people have artificially created 'job security' for themselves by not documenting their knowledge/ product information.
    -Limited opportunites to work in different teams due to small size of the company
    - Difficult to work with some developers due to their rude behavior

    Advice to Management

    Technology division seems to be turning into a sweatshop.
    Thousands of man-hours are wasted into products which do not sell. Please focus on products that make money.

    Lots of new technology and excitement in Infrastructure. Cool atmosphere and overall fun to come to work everyday.

    Getting to NY office is difficult for NJ employees when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Changes and new hires brought in over the last year are a breath of fresh air and great additions.
