"Decent place"

Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

Pros

Great place to work. Sometimes intensive when you are in trading, but experience and compensation is worth it. Mako is a decent company with a very strong fundamental options knowledge base what

Cons

Advice to Management

Keep investing in technology and promote collaboration between teams. This is the way.
