    I have been working at FX Alliance

    Pros

    Good business model Kitchen area Plenty of clients

    Cons

    Too many group hires leads to factions Unstable management. People come in, stay a bit, install their friends and leave Your career depends not upon skill, merit or hardwork but having the right connections Employees not respected, viewed as perishable items with short shelf life Too many programmers without any management experience are left free to make management decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting people hire their friends or old colleagues & create a fair environment. Realize that software creation or programming and delivery of service are distinct responsibilities and most people will not do both well. With periods of no management things are bound to suffer for that very reason, you don't need to find another reason

    Former Employee - QA Analyst in New York, NY
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at FX Alliance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    For QA folks: Steady stream of work Reasonable balance between work life- since work is not overly challenging A great place to work if you are NOT looking for challenges in your career or any sort of career growth Middle management employees tend to stick around forever and rarely provide an opportunity for promotion by attrition.

    Cons

    One mans poison is another mans elixir. The Pros mentioned above could be Huge Cons for some. 1For Functional Folks- You hit a plateau very soon and its a struggle to keep the motivation up since there is nothing much to learn . 2 Growth potential is very rare- and if you dont enjoy testing the same set of features or executing the same tests again and again - This is NOT the place for you. Certain aspects may... have changed since their aquisition by Thomson Reuters so my update may be outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Advices in Proffesional circle is useless- especially an advice propogated via a third party site. So I leave the higher management to do what they do best and run their own show.
