    True trade shop

    Market Risk Analyst (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    Pros- excellent bonuses
    - fast pace environment forces you to learn quickly
    - ability to move around within the company to different roles

    Cons- very cut-throat environment where you see firings and resignings happen often
    - training is not necessarily their forte
    - hours worked are ridiculous... a lot of these positions should be geared towards young professionals w/o families

    Advice to Senior Management- emphasize better training schedule
    - stop cutting costs and hire more help if needed...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Used to be a great company. Now Terrible

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsFree health insurance for entire family
    Company is financially stable
    Good if you are looking to grow in the oil/metals business
    Use this company to gain knowledge and knowhow of the business, then MOVE ON.

    ConsPOOR personal life/family life balance
    POOR salary structure. (They say due to bonus but lately bonuses are terrible.
    POOR Management
    SHADY business practices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagment is horribly setup. Main office wants control of everything but you report to local managers that arent proper managers, so they will do what it takes to keep you looking bad to corporate office. No formal training is done to these managers. Company policies are terrible. "travel on your own time" then if you travel this afternoon you must work until your flight on that day. I am giving up my weekend or evenigns with my kids, the least they can do is allow you some time in lieu.

    The company doesnt care about its employees. All they care about is more money more money.
    No raises in two years, they said it was becasue shares went up. This is irrelevent. Bonuses continute to go down. I left the company and am making $25K elsewhere.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
