    I have been working at HFP Capital Markets

    Pros

    nothing it is horrible place to work and the people that work there are the worst in the business. They got in trouble with IRS and now are under a different name.

    Cons

    Anything you can think of as unethical behavior and horrible to your clients revolves around these people. They know nothing about finance and half of them don't even have college "if not highschool" degrees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go away

    I worked at HFP Capital Markets

    Pros

    Used them to get my series 7 and left.

    Cons

    terrible place, zero respect for anyone, they will use you, they will try and make you drink the coolaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just google the guys that work there and you will see all of their scams. A new one just came in Novemeber the CEO is in alot of trouble with IRS and FINRA. Im surprised they made it this long with all of their scams but it seems like its catching up to them. I think FINRA is investigating them now dont even waste your time.
