Pros

Challenging environment, see results of your efforts quickly, and good people with low attitudes. Love the free food and overall good benefit package. Co-workers are the best part.

Cons

Hours can be demanding at times, but none of this stuff about not being able to take vacation is true, I have never had a problem. I would say if you want to work at a trading firm the hours here are actually good compared to others.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to learn and develop your skills at a firm that returns 80 percent or more every year. If you work hard your role will grow even though your compensation will stagnate.

    Cons

    Ownership is greedy. They will mislead you with promises of bigger bonuses but you will always be left waiting until "next year."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some character and reward those who are making you rich.
