    I have been working at FlexTrade Systems Inc.

    Pros

    Since it is a small company you get to play a lot of roles. So you get some really good exposure. It is a great company as a start-up. The pay is also competent with other companies and the bonus is also quite good.

    Cons

    Since it is a small company, it is not that renowned. So it will not create a great impression on your resume for the company name. But the work is really good. The people tend to get very serious as soon as they step in the office premises. It would have been fun had it been a little lighter. Colleagues hardly have a chat over coffee or something. The other thing is if you are into some kind of development work, you also have to support it. So you have to be there from 8:30-5:30 even if you do not have any work. And there is no work from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on making the work culture a little fun. Everyone is very serious all the time.

    I have been working at FlexTrade Systems Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Get to meet and work with giants from the world of financial trading.
    Flat organisational structure with great advancement opportunities for initial 2-3 years.
    Transparent management policies and friendly senior staff.

    Cons

    Client support in India tends to become really strenuous
    Personal growth opportunities tend to decrease after 2-3 years. They are limited to more senior personnel and thus, advancement stops.
    Technology advancement is at a relative standstill

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More importance to work-life balance
    should allow employees to take on more responsibilities rather than limit them to senior personnel

    Pros

    Busy but laid back company. Friendly atmosphere, free food every friday. Good pay and benefits. It's busy work, but it's quite varied and interesting if finance is your thing.

    Cons

    Not much input from management, often left for days without any input. Not much talk of progression, and long hours seem to be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage more with employees, be clearer about the job at interviews.
