    Pros

    Questrade pays much better than other banks and offer exceptional benefit. Senior Management have tremendous talent and treat employee as asset.

    Cons

    Food court is bad in North American Centre. They should have moved to other office for expanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On the right track and periodically review salary to avoid losing good employees to big banks.

    Pros

    Collaborative 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.

    Cons

    Was 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.

    I worked at Questrade full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They 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.

    Cons

    Way 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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat your clients and employees better.
