Good place to work.

Vice President (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Investment Technology

ProsLarge company with a small company feel. Company has tremendous growth potential given the recent collapse of some very large competitors. No capital at risk, so little chance of a blow up.

ConsSome projects take a long time to get implemented or do not meet the client specs when they finally are. Technology good but not leading edge.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake it clear to the employees what they are expected to do to grow the business and how they get paid if they succeed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

A secretive place to work in

Financial Engineer (Former Employee)
Boston, MA (US)

I worked at Investment Technology

ProsGreat group of colleagues, they work hard and have real talents.

ConsNo leadership from senior management, no growth in point of view.
Secretive middle management. Minimum communication in-between department, minimum chance of career training and development

Advice to Senior ManagementI think the CEO should step down.

Overall a good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Investment Technology

ProsBenefits
Training and Development opportunities
Work/Life balance

ConsManagement isn't tough enough on holding the line for poor performance, and this drags down the credibility of the firm and has a detrimental impact on the talent that the firm is trying to retain. Loyalty is taken a little too far in some cases, and mediocrity is being rewarded in lieu of rewards for superstars.

Advice to Senior ManagementDisseminate the "boys club".

Management is out for themselves

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Investment Technology

ProsPrior to the recession, the company was really trying to grow in the electronic trading market. They have a true niche in the market with solid product/service offerings.

ConsThe company leadership has no idea how to keep the company afloat. Some MDs are more concerned with being friends with the people they manage than being mentors. They keep cutting our benefits.

Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees more. Stop cutting the business and expecting it to grow. Stop paying yourselves and cutting pay to your employees.

Nice Place in Good Economic Times

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Investment Technology

ProsWork Life Balance. Get Most Benefits. Competitive starting salaries if you graduated from a good school (fresh grads). Friendly low stress environment. Excellent products well recognized and respected in market. Financial Firm, so experience you get is so useful if you want to move to some bigger firm when you feel it is the time. Most interns get hired even in bad economic times. So lucky you if you are an intern and your manager was satisfied with your performance.

ConsTough to increase your salary in a bad economy and job security becomes questionable if your performance isn't wow..

Advice to Senior ManagementCutting costs and decreasing head count is not the only answer in difficult times. Losing the good people to competitors has a big price. There should be some good ways to increase revenues and market share in a faster pace even when the economy slows down.

OK, but "club" environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Investment Technology

ProsIt's a good place to work with decent salary, benefits, etc. There are many different groups to work within because of their enterprise solutions.

ConsIt's a good place to work with decent salary, benefits, etc. But if you are not in the old boys club, you won't advance

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more feedback to employees on corporate status. And maybe relay down the ranks that good employees should be (at least ) praised for good work
