Pros

Some of the people working there are just great.

Cons

Are you an IT professional, enthusiast of your job and willing to work for a good company that will valorize you and will guide your career? Well then stay away from this place. What you will find is too young line managers completely incapable of managing, with some middle managers on top that will never talk to you. You are going to be assigned to some impossible to achieve project, so badly managed from the beginning that is obviously due to fail, but even if you do all your best and manage to complete it, one day you will find yourself suddenly in a room with your line manager and someone from HR that you never spoke with before that will fire you, without even some warning before. The IT is very badly managed with a lot of issue and legacy procedure that stay there even they don't makes any sense. There is also a toxic blaming culture and the HR department is basically useless and never present. They will tell you that this is how companies in finance work, well is not like that. Is full of decent companies out there that are just more human than this.

Pros

Flat management structure; relaxed atmosphere; good initiatives around diversity and inclusion; senior management very open about the company's performance and direction.

Cons

No formal appraisal process or setting of objectives so linking your performance to reward is mostly a matter of guesswork, at best. Still plenty of big egos kicking around.

Pros

Flexible working conditions, good work-life balance. People are nice, caring, and helpful (very rare in the Hedge fund industry). Complete lack of toxic politics. Diverse employees.

Cons

The pay is well below the market.

Advice to Management

Everything is great but if the pay is not, it's going to be hard to retain top talent.

Complete lack of toxic politics.

Pros

Quite a number of talented people Focus on technology Compensation

Cons

Lack of respect for individuals talents, too much of: "we define the right way of doing things" Some politics, but depends probably on individual circumstances. Developers are too separated from research

Advice to Management

Nurture every business opportunity instead of "we're too good for this low margin "nonsense""

Some politics, but depends probably on individual circumstances.
