    Pros

    Easy to shine in short bursts

    Cons

    unprofessional environment populated by friends and family rather than by the talent. Senior management unaware that a company is made up of more than just sales and trading - it actually requires capable IT and middle office as well as a thoughtful investment in infrastructure and assets that support the business process. Penny wise and often pound foolish coupled with extravagant waste thrown at the wrong people

    Advice to Management

    Study the organization
