No middle ground

Capital Asset Trader (Current Employee)
Redwood City, CA

ProsBusiness model is genius.

Opportunity for promotion and leadership is made readily available to successful traders.

Insane earning potential for the level of experience required.

Your work stories will always kill at parties - no one will have crazier, funnier, more unbelievable ones.

If you have a strong intrinsic motivation to make more money than anyone else you know and to prove to yourself that you can survive an environment that most people cannot - you'll be fine here.

ConsLong hours in the office, and you will often be answering calls and emails all night and on weekends.

Very little PTO, mediocre benefits.

Management changes direction every 1-2 months. It doesn't actually change how the company operates at the end of the day, just creates extra metrics and new things for people to complain about.

High testosterone frat house.

Always feels like you haven't done enough, like you should stay longer so you could finish more work.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to hire seasoned professionals, an HR person, and a committed operations team.

When you give someone a title, make sure it correlates to their responsibilities and stays stable.

Recognize when people burn out, and give them a break instead of more responsibilities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
