"As big corporations go, WSJ just doesn't quite know which way is up. I am skeptical of any improvements in the next year or two. Overall the environment is filled with red tape, egos, lack of leadership and no clear goals."

"Wallstreet Systems has undergone a lot of changes since they were acquired by ION Trading. The environment has changed and unfortunately the sales cycle for WSS products has slowed a great deal. Many people have left and some are being laid off as they roll off of their projects. It is a great place to build your skill set as you are exposed to a lot of variables on the job."

I felt vey sorry for our closure in Taiwan but I didn't lose the confidence and passion of helping people via education, I hope WSI could be better and better in the future!"
