Pros – Working at i-Trade FX was an interesting place. Back in the day, it was a place with a future and a lot of new ideas going forward. Then they had a bunch of layoffs, and it slid downhill. Company management didn't go out of their way to try to change things up.
Overall though, it was a pleasant experience while it lasted
Company management cared a lot about their employees while I was there. They tried to learn everyone's name and interests, and holidays were the best.
Cons – Management didn't listen to ideas as much as a small company probably should.
A lot of people didn't know anything about the forex business, but acted like kings.
Advice to Senior Management – Learn to listen to employees and not just push a management style for the sake of itself.
Pros – It was a new company so ideas were welcomed from all employees and in most cases implemented. Any person had the freedom to walk down the hall and speak with the CEO, a luxury that most do not have at their jobs.
Cons – Its pro is also a con, because it was a new company the budget was small until the company starting doing well. Once the firm starting doing well it was almost impossible to get a raise past the senior managing members of the firm.
Advice to Senior Management – Take care of the employees that truly give all of their effort to help you succeed, instead of taking care of the people you like and have known.
