    Lack of communication, high desk fees, owner is somewhat unstable, no negotiation on profit splits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much of the profit goes to top management. The clerks and traders pay the price and go into debt.

    I worked at Eagle Market Makers part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pros? Not here. Just a bunch of amateurs trading in the dark. If you want pros go somewhere else.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Management is a joke. Unless you went to Coe College you won't get a fair shot. I've never been in such an unfair work environment. Expect at least 2 years of working 50-60+ hrs a week for part-time pay and no advancement. If you're not good at kissing or taking it up the pie hole then you won't succeed here. All of the good traders eventually leave or get pushed out the door because management is psychotic, literally, and they don't offer a fair deal to anyone....unless you went to Coe College.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a few lessons in business management, morality & ethics, and stop doing so many drugs.
