Dynamic bias and stress. Better firms exist in the area.
Junior trader (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 27, 2018
Biased and patronizing management tend to create a toxic and unpleasant work environment. Periodic evaluation of performance is arbitrary and whimsical. Attrition rates are high due to constant pressure from the management to maximize PNL gains. College interns' half life is short because they are treated like some raw material. As a result, FINRA rule violations are frequent, which clearly underscores what priorities the firm has set for itself.

Junior Trader (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 18, 2015
I am enjoying my time at Akuna. There are great opportunities for advancement and independent projects.
There has been a growing disconnect between management and employees since the company has grown.
This company has a lot of growth potential. Now would be a good time to jump on board if this is the industry you are looking for.
Pros
Plenty of free food and nice kitchen, competitive compensation for industry, growing quickly, most of the people are very friendly
Cons
Disconnect between management and employees
