    I worked at Advantage Futures full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed all of my colleagues. Everyone seems to treat people fairly, respectfully and I never had a problem working with anyone. Departments cross often. I had a flexible schedule, wasn't stuck to my desk. My ideas and innovations were welcomed.

    Cons

    I learned a lot, but it was all self taught to advance my career. Despite great annual employee reviews I only got one raise the entire 4 years I worked for the company. When my skill set developed and my responsibility increased tremendously I was never rewarded - no title change or compensation change. They gave poor or no bonuses, don't compensate employees on their responsibilities or skill level, raises come very rarely, don't hire or promote from within hardly ever. Very high employee turnover. It is a great first job or start into the trading industry, but not a place to stay with forever if you want to develop and grow your career with a company. Benefits were minimal they were required to provide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation should be equal to the value an employee provides and their responsibilities to accomplish their job. Each employee should be treated like a forever employee, and not a temporary fixture.

    I have been working at Advantage Futures as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to speak with multiple employees. Have an in-depth understanding of the position before starting. Direct approach that answers all questions promptly.

    Cons

    There was a lot of down time if you had nothing to do. Otherwise, the learning curve was steep at times.
