    I have been working at Jump Trading full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good office with great view. Clear responsibility areas. Pay well. Interesting corporate events.

    Cons

    Carrier path is confusing. Higher management says the titles don't matter. May be it is so for them, but it ends up with random and unreasonable title assignment, which leads to unnecessary tensions (conclusion from conversions with colleagues).
