    Pros

    The management cares about the benefits of the employers and provide more help than one would need. The people and the company structure is simple. You can really focuse on the work itself instead of worrying about company politics or about being squeezed out.

    Cons

    overcrowded office. But rest is good

    Pros

    Group is laser focused on growth. Impressive people across the spectrum of traders, quants and devs and above all a culture that promotes learning and collaboration, which is rarely the case in this industry.

    Cons

    The pace at which new initiatives unravel can take a toll on work-life balance but nothing too extreme.
