    It was a great learning experience with Futures First with every day brings new challenges to the table.

    Analyst (Former Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    ProsThe best and only reason to work with Futures First is MONEY. If yo have the potential, there is no limit to it. If trading is your passion, get into it to live it.

    ConsThey fire more than they hire so be prepared. If you want to build a stable career, this is not the company for you as you never know when company call it a day for you and you will have nowhere to go as the experience gained is not of much use to other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement can consider shifting traders to various departments if he/she is not performing well in current department as you have already invested so much money . Firing him/her is not the best option.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Market Analyst

    Trainee Market Analyst (Former Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    ProsA faint chance to earn tons of Money

    Cons1- Managers there are descendants of Satan. Treat employees as expendables.
    2- Excruciating working hours.
    3- Whole work-life balance goes tumbling.
    4- U will get increasingly frustated day by day.
    5- No cab facility provided by comapny even when working hours are like 12-11.
    6- No real skill learnt. It would be hard to find job in future as skill sets learnt are not used anywhere else. Most people have to do MBA or MS after there are very few career opportunities.
    7- Office culture is non existent. You cannot even listen to music in office without raising manager's eyebrows.
    8- You might get fired without you having a clue. Happened with guys of 2013 batch.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart treating people as Assets. U need them more than they need you. Remove those managers who are not capable of managing and treating people

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
