    I worked at Questrade full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Collaborative environment, good benefits, understanding managers, flexible schedule.

    There were lots of room for personal growth and they have a lot of trading seminars for everyone to keep up to date on how their software works.. and in general, useful for the staff in other areas so they can get acquainted with the industry.

    Cons

    Was rather unorganized as I didn't have a project manager. My training was kind of shallow so I had to figure a lot of things out for myself.

    Pros

    The people, the unique projects, the ERAC events. Being involved with such a dynamic team is a pleasure. Also, the chance to work on multiple projects (of varying complexities) has really enhanced my skills. I've become a better communicator and manager thanks to Questrade.

    Cons

    My chilly office. Other than that, I have nothing to criticize. However, being located closer to downtown would be nice :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When possible, try not to rush through a project to attempt to meet a certain deadline. (i.e. RRSP season).

    I worked at Questrade full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people are fun to work with and fantastically loyal to the company. The company has multiple objectives and projects underway at all times so the work is varied and challenging.

    Cons

    The company has too many projects and priorities so there is little focus and some work gets bogged down by non stop meeting requests.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on on perfecting a smaller set of products and services. Follow the 80/20 rule.
