Do not bother getting caught up in their pitch, hype, or hyperbole. None of it is real.

Former Employee - Assistant Vice President in Great Neck, NY

I worked at FlexTrade Systems Inc. full-time for more than a year

Pros

Indian cultural awareness. You'll meet some very bright programmers.

Cons

Family run nepotism. Flat corporate structure. Anyone that is there more than 5 years knows how to game the system, which means, do not try to change anything that requires fixing. Anyone there past 10 years maybe just a handful have already lost their integrity and dream. Enslaves intelligent minds. Pay is usually lower than the street. Poor year end bonus system and compensation. Huge turnover rate. No culture. In-house competition even among sales team members. Bait and switch demos. Chop shop. Very poor reputation. Customers are leaving in droves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell it while you still can.

    Pros

    Small company with lots of hats to wear at any given time.
    A huge presence in the industry, and their name on a resume will open doors.

    Cons

    Management is based on nepotism and whims.
    There is not really a structure that supports employee growth.
    Bonuses are based on CEO's feelings rather than reviews.
    Management tends to like docile employees and cannot be challenged in any way.
    They equate presence at your desk as productivity, not actual work.
    Regardless of how much you do, if you are not popular with management, you will not go anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage people and let them grow. It is better to admit you are wrong and create a great working environment, than insist you are right and bad one. Also, people in management roles should learn how to manage. Just look at your turn around rates...they are rather high.
