    I have been working at Marshall Wace North America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cons

    Very rigid on starting times, 8 am on the dot daily High pressure environment, only suited to someone with a high tolerance for ambiguity and the ability to deal with conflicting requirements Low on process - the other edge of the lack of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Flexi time / work from home options should be expanded

    I worked at Marshall Wace North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The office is beautiful and the benefits are some of the best i've ever had. If you work hard you are rewarded well & the IT systems/support is second to none

    Cons

    Senior management... they're highly strung, condescending, rude and they will treat you like you're something they stepped in.

    Advice to Management

    None. They won't change as they make money & think that's all that matters.
