    I have been working at AKUNA CAPITAL

    Pros

    * Reasonable, down-to-earth management * Top tech talent * People are serious about their work * Many social opportunities * Very cool office * Freedom to explore new technologies, propose ideas * Immediate feedback (move fast and break things) * Great work schedule * Ping pong culture, breakfast, snacks

    Cons

    * Very fast-paced, not for the faint of heart * High pressure/responsibility - money is on the line every second of the day * Growing very quickly, expect to devote a chunk of time to the interview process * Training programs are improving, but you are still definitely expected to hit the ground running * Some benefits are still being ironed out
