    Great exposure to the HFT world. No financial background required. Your mathematics and computer science skills will improve tremendously. Lots of responsibilities and opportunities to learn.

    Pros

    1. We have full access to all parts of company. Very easy to switch between projects and move to ones we like.
    2. A lot to learn - There are a lots of things each guy works on. So we learn a lot.
    3. Freedom - No Boss.
    4. Like most other start-ups we can see our code directly running in live.
    5. When you are not in office, you are not in office.
    6. Very talented people to work with.

    Cons

    Well, They are similar to pros - :-/
    1. Sometimes we directly get to run things in live. So should hold full responsibility of work we do. There is no one to test new work properly. So, might have to look at results in live and make immediate fixes.
    2. Freshers might find the learning curve too steep. May have to learn quickly to work at a rapid pace.
    3. Might have to multi task a lot.
    4. No boss, but every one knows what we are working on. No one forces any one, but we ourselves will be forced to keep up with others.

    Advice to Management

    More parties and events.

    I have been working at Two Roads Tech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing people, we work very closely together. Being a small setup, we have no bureaucracy. Founders / Mentors are amazingly down-to-earth and soft-spoken. I think that makes it a wonderful place and delightful work environment. You get full ownership, lead team in your work, rather than being instructed! At the end of the day, you will see the impact of your work.

    Cons

    Office is located in the outskirts of Bangalore and commute time is ~1 hour each day.
    If you have the habit of being spoon-fed everytime, this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on end-users. Keep doing all the good work.

    Minimum management

    Cons

    Too much pressure
    Strange HR policy. Names are disclosed during peer review causing bad relations with team members.

    Improve HR policy
