    I worked at Avatar Securities full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Perfect company for being a proprietary trader. Excellent location, office, environment and management team. Senior management team and other traders are willing to help in both your account issues and your trading.

    Cons

    I was trading at Avatar for a few year and I did not find any mayor cons. Management team was extremely helpful at all times. It was a pleasure working there.

    I worked at Avatar Securities full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Payouts are made as agreed, which is not always the norm in the trading world. Flexibility to work remotely as needed if performance is satisfactory.

    Cons

    Strategy training programs could be better regimented. Increase in capital does not necessarily follow positive performance.

    Pros

    Freedom. Opportunity. Fair compensation. Quick, top of the line computer equipment / platforms. Friendly work atmosphere. Knowledgeable, helpful staff and managers.

    Cons

    Independent trading is a very tough business to be successful in. Avatar (like all trading companies) can only do so much to help. Their fee structure, while consistent with industry standards, adds up quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to much feedback. Management was very honest and open about the difficulties of the business, and made no promises.
