    I have been working at FlexTrade Systems Inc. full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work is decent if you land in a good team though it quickly gets saturated as the scope of your work is limited

    Cons

    This company is a family owned business, the family will not hesitate to squeeze off the employees until the last penny.Proof is that you have to negotiate with the CEO for all year end compensation revisions.
    Compensation is way less than the market.Negligible perks.Bonus is too low.
    Employment is offered only to those desperate ones who will join at the lowest salary possible.
    Promotion is hard to come by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop just collecting money,start caring for employees.

    I worked at FlexTrade Systems Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
