    Pros

    pay is not bad. working hours is OK. good location.

    Cons

    1, You don't feel like a developer working there, just a typist. Micro management detailed to the level that you don't have to have a brain working there, two hands are enough.

    2, Cryptic culture. Developers are often given projects without knowing what's is really for.

    3, The culture is formed in such a way that people do not talk to each other, they sit at their desk eating their lunch quietly ... day after day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In addition to money, try to be nice to you employees, do not just pretend to.

    I worked at Interactive Brokers

    Pros

    1 (optional) meeting each week
    Lots of parking, office park shuttle service to train/HQ near train
    Free lunch on the firm every day.
    Flexible 40-hour week (7-3, 9-5, etc)

    Cons

    Development is emphasized...so many new versions of product sometimes causes inconveniences for other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drawbacks to the "Silo-ed" structure are mounting...what good are local optima? Mysterious development problems obviously spillover into marketing and sales depts.
