Exciting but lack of proper supervision

Financial Trader (Former Employee)
Dhaka (Bangladesh)

I worked at Interactive Brokers

Pros- Opportunity to trade in foreign financial market and learn about the market practically.
- Opportunity to learn technical analysis by applying it in real situation.
- Management gave ample opportunity to prepare for real trading by trading simulation

Cons- Only two person in the firm have real trading experience.
- Do not have a knowledgeable and experienced supervisor for new traders.
- Failed to give a proper guideline to the new trader for example: what is expected to them after the end of a day or month.

Advice to Senior Management- Should appoint a supervisor who have real trading experience.
- Should have more trading style in the firm to accommodate different people with different qualification. For example: A person who have proper training and motivation to trade by proper analysis should have the independence to trade coming out of the limitation of "day trading style"

Otherwise IB will be forever stuck with a 'low-cost' brainless muscle executor… More

don't work here if you want to be a real developer

Developer (Current Employee)

Pros: pay is not bad. working hours is OK. … Cons: 1, You don't feel like a developer working there, just a typist. Micro management detailed to the level that you don't have to have… Advice to Senior Management: In addition to money, try to be nice to you… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
