    I worked at Two Roads Tech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1) One of the earlier guys to get into HFT.
    2) Being situated in a hotel, you get wide variety of food although the spending is capped and not sufficient given the charges.
    3) It is a small setup.

    Cons

    1) Management is not responsible and ethical. Not an employee first company.
    2) Huge discrimination in compensation structure.
    3) The firm is not stable, recently closed entire HFT division on short notice of 1 day, with minimal severance pay of 1 month salary.
    4) Salary not at par with the industry standard and no bonuses which are huge component in HFTs.
    5) Lot of legacy code.
    6) Not well organised production setup, lot of time is wasted in monitoring the production hence very little development and improvement.
    7) The work environment is sort of depressing. Team members don't interact much.
    8) Situated in outskirts of Bangalore.

    Advice to Management

    1) Focus on building healthy culture. Treat employees like your family.
    2) Focus on hiring quality rather than hiring people and firing them within 3 months.
    3) Don't try to control everything, give employees space and freedom. Focus on making the workplace more lively.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Probably a diverse experience would be better

    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.

    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.
