    Pros

    Work alongside talented traders. Very flexible and opportunistic organization with a flat hierarchy. Good office location. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    A cutthroat environment with limited career development opportunities. Salaries and comp package well below market rate with no/limited progression (especially if you are not a trader). Anyone else working outside core trading business is a second-class citizen.
