good learning opportunity

Trading Assistant (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Chopper Trading full-time for less than a year

ProsTremendous amount of freedom, can learn to trade almost anything. Great benefits, good guaranteed bonus, low hierarchy - perform and rise. Kitchen with food and goodies. Expanding out and is a growing company. It's not a start up phase, but still in an exciting stage.

Consliquidity is low, things can get frustrating. but that is the life of trading.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's good you are focusing on the expansion of the company to different countries and states, but also focus on your current investments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
