    Pros

    Let you take decent losses without putting up much capital. Has an initial training course to teach the basics on trading.

    Cons

    The rates are pretty high, and management is opaque about what is actually going in with changes in the company

    Advice to Management

    To be more clear and open with its traders. Explain why rates are so high or offer different packages openly on costs vs services offered

    I have been working at Amr Capital Trading Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to trade whatever you want, relaxed environment, no capital contribution required, decent buying power, easy to ask for more buying power if your results are good, reliable back office support

    Cons

    Sparse training, little interaction between group members, very high commission rates, software isn't the fastest, nothing in the pantry besides coffee, no real perks

    Advice to Management

    Adjust structure to attract better talent, lower commission rates to keep the talent
