    Great place to get started!

    Interaction Designer (Former Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsCollaborative environment, good benefits, understanding managers, flexible schedule.

    There were lots of room for personal growth and they have a lot of trading seminars for everyone to keep up to date on how their software works.. and in general, useful for the staff in other areas so they can get acquainted with the industry.

    ConsWas rather unorganized as I didn't have a project manager. My training was kind of shallow so I had to figure a lot of things out for myself.

    A lot of unsatisfied clients

    Client Service Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsThey paid better then the big bank I previously worked at in the same position. Office located off of the TTC subway line. They have some innovative products, like USD in a registered account.

    ConsWay too many trades not being executed because of technical issues. Clients often had to wait 30 minutes or more to speak with a client service rep. Supervisor did nothing but talk to his girlfriend on the phone all day. Management wold make promises and not keep them. Low employee moral.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your clients and employees better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
