    I have been working at Tradeweb full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at Tradeweb (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good team work was in place. I really enjoyed working for Tradeweb until last June. Then RBC appeared, and the takeover began. Good people were let go to make space for others.

    Cons

    If you used to work at RBC then you will make it here. Otherwise you should look elsewhere for a job.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the Infrastructure Group. The culture in NJ is toxic. Whatever your new CISO is doing, copy that. They have a clue. Look at Dev for Dealerweb too - good group.

    "Formerly BondDesk Group"

    Pros

    The original folks that were from BondDesk before Tradeweb bought them really did make the small company feel like a family home for all. The atmosphere at the Rochester, MI BondDesk location was very laid back and relaxed environment that created a very productive work/life balance workplace. The flexible hours and working from home policies expanded on the work/life balance even more. The Tradeweb transition had a decent severance package.

    The ratings were factoring in both sides of the fence, sadly one side really brought down the average ratings.

    Cons

    Once Tradeweb had started the final transition to close the Rochester, MI office they decided to let go of the majority of people. The majority of developer's from BondDesk was let go in place of their H1B's developers in New Jersey, as many in Rochester, MI weren't even offered a relocation package. The transition handing off tech knowledge to the H1B's was very difficult and not very receptive. A lot of finger pointing instead of taking notes and trying to absorb the knowledge being transferred.

    Advice to Management

    Give US Citizen's the same chance for a position as you did with the H1B tech workers. Do better quality testing makings sure the developer's acumen is at least up to Jr. level.

    I have been working at Tradeweb full-time

    Pros

    Work with other very smart people. Not many demands to work extra hours. Free snacks and beverages, plus bagels on Friday.

    Cons

    The company is not too fond of people working from home, but it's possible in an emergency. The midtown NYC location (business offices) seems to have priority over Jersey City (software development and trading), in terms of peoples' voices being heard.

    Advice to Management

    Somewhat disingenuous about justifying lackluster bonuses, in the face of a wave of hiring and company acquisitions.

    I worked at Tradeweb (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    An electronic trading platform company with huge potential, strong technology and a powerful heritage (as one of the companies originally located in WTC before 9/11).

    Cons

    Some key members of the senior management team are leading this company in the wrong direction, creating fiefdoms, incentivizing toxic politics and rewarding nepotism and cronyism over merit and performance.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the toxic managers (even the most senior) and retrench with leadership that believe in cooperation, vision and, first and foremost, client-led innovation.

    I have been working at Tradeweb full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good place to pickup Fixed Income trading knowledge. One of the best places to work if you were working as product manager, business analyst, operations team and quantitative developers. Very relaxed working environment for product managers and business analysts. Overall positive outlook for business unit.

    Cons

    Management quality in technology has deteriorated over the period of time. Lesser investment in newer technologies, more focused investments in acquisitions. In last several years, about 5 acquisitions. Stressful work environment for software developers to maintain old technology. Overall negative outlook for technology unit.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in better quality technology managers who can execute tasks with efficiency and quality. Continue to keep employee retention period longer to be successful.
