    Pros

    Good health insurance and life insurance

    Cons

    pay interns 10.00 an hr
     Nepotism is unbelievable.
    Management is very out of touch..
    Jobs are bait and switch
    HR Department is only for company - beware...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do monthly reviews of VPs and HR from employees . The VPs are inexperienced and should be reviewed and sent to CEO. Things would be different if CEO would quit turning their head . Look at all the good people, they are gone!

    Pros

    good benefits
    learn a ton about FX/CFD's
    exposure to very knowledgeable and motivated people (just not management)

    Cons

    nonexistent upward movement
    no bonus structure
    unclear goals
    lack of corporate structure
    inability to provide feedback for improvement
    disconnect between management and the front-line
    zero management experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make sure you know what is going on, understand what you are suppose to do and let your teams do what they are supposed to do. provide clear guidelines for hitting goals and pay bonus when goals are hit. setup systems for feedback to easily get from the front-lines upward. avoid promoting incompetent people.
