    Pros

    Good health benefits; nice office with a great view, some free refreshments and snacks.

    Cons

    Frat house atmoshpere. Middle management is a joke who create a hostile environment.

    Advice to Management

    Try and pretend as if it's a real corporation and not a sandbox with playground etiquette and h.s. girl catiness. Very cut throat. No opportunities for growth nor is it promoted.

    Pros

    They provide very good training before you really start to work. They give good basic salary to satisfy their workers

    Cons

    You need to work for very very long time in tradition financial services. They have relatively small clients's base so hard to gain the bonus.

    Advice to Management

    They should orgranize the working process with more efficient schedule, and to provide more information for the workers. To give higher salary

    You must have a thick skin to work in the Commodities and Energy Brokerage world. You can not be faint at heart.
