    I have been working at ABC arbitrage full-time

    Pros

    -Good work atmosphere, generally smart and pleasant colleagues. -Total compensation is ok -Not much micromanagement -Most projects are important, small company enables you to talk to other departments directly

    Cons

    -Dysfunctional ego-centric management is completely out of touch with reality. Way too much politics for a company this size. The flat structure is actually highly hierarchical among peers. -Fixed salary way below market so they can keep waving the bonus stick or force you to leave. -The bonus scheme is opaque and very far from "meritocratic" as advertised.

    I worked at ABC arbitrage for less than a year

    Pros

    As student, it is really helpful to start getting some work experience which freelance and internship jobs are the perfect places to practice and get a foot on your industry before you finish your studies.

    Cons

    It will be hard to balance your job and personal works since while you're working on the job, you still have to be looking for the next gig
