Pros

High payout. Access to capital. Good support. Good benefits. I liked working there was profitable every month I worked there.

Cons

Management wanted to change my deal as soon as financial crisis hit. Was profitable every month, never took drawdowns, they didnt care. Raised commisions, lowered payout. So I left

Advice to Management

Dont change employees deals for no reason. Asses each person on their own merits and dont force profitable traders to subsidize unprofitable ones.

    Pros

    Very large, successful organization. Canadian division is a great place to work and Canadian colleagues are talented and upbeat. NY offices are in Manhattan. Pay is ok, on par with other financial institutions, better than other industries.

    Cons

    Note - this applies to NY office only!
    Poor senior management style and poor hiring of junior management. Very negative attitude and fear trickles down to staff. No promotions & no rewards for good performance. Over-hiring then firing demonstrates poor planning. Revolving door environment - good people leave.

    Advice to Management

    Note - this applies to NY office only!
    Treat staff with more respect. Nurture talents and allow people to use them. Maintain a more positive attitude and reward good performance and share in company achievements.
