Pros

Great place to learn the trading industry and ability to focus on what you want to learn.

Cons

There is a high rate of turnover in the IT department, for support personal they rarely stay more than 2 years before moving on to a higher paying job within or outside of the trading industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value the support employees more and you will not have to constantly be hiring and training high school and college graduates. It doesnt take much to keep an employee around for more than 2 years, just a semi-competative salary compared to the rest of the marketplace.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, great Cafe! open atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sr. Managment does not communicate at all. No promotion possible ever. Rare raise and if so, very small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please encourage more communication, staff are people too. We support our familes from working and are nervous and uptight when we can tell things are going on that we do not hear about.
