    Good place to be a trader

    Pros

    This is a trading company run by traders. If you are a high performer and want more agency over PnL and direct influence on your compensation, this is your place. Work life balance seems to be better than at other firms. I have found the mentorship to be top-notch, but only because I have sought it out. Lack of structure/hierarchy means a more entrepreneurial culture, which I have enjoyed. I get paid well and I enjoy the company of my coworkers.

    Cons

    The technology is slower than competitors. Teams are segregated and their isn't much collaboration, although this isn't by design. Management is slow to make changes and having senior people down in Puerto Rico doesn't help. If you end up on a lesser performing desk then you probably wont do as well. There is no structured training program for new hires, although this wasn't an issue for me. HR/recruiting hasn't done a great job at getting good talent in the door.

    A great company with solid prospects

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunities for growth, but you do have to put in the time // work. Great benefits, including free lunch daily. They used to do an annual ski trip, not sure if this is done anymore. Business is very well run

    Cons

    Landing on a good desk / having a desk head is crucial, but this can be on the luck of the draw. Sometimes upper management can be a bit distant and not communicate as clearly as they should

    Pros

    Training for new employees Laid-back culture: no dresscode, relatively flat structure

    Cons

    Long working hours, tough to take vacation. CEO is extremely christian and does not hesitate to push it onto others, up to making people read bible chapters as part of training Toxic culture in general, some of the management is plainly sexist, homophobic, etc and has no hesitation expressing these views White savior type of charity - going to Haiti to build a house and "see how blessed we are" and how "locals were even happy with having the meal we provided" Reaction to covid-19 was a disaster, people wouldn't stay at home while sick so it spread through the office
