I have been working at Agora Financial full-time (More than 5 years)
Agora Financial has a casual working environment. There is flexibility in being able to work remotely if you need to. All of my co-workers work just as hard as I do to reach our company's quarterly and yearly goals. Hard work is compensated and recognized. You have the ability to carve out your own path. I have never felt micromanaged. There is independence to do what you have to do to get your job done. It has been fun to watch the company grow from where it was almost six years ago when I started. I have also been able to grow with the company.
Work load is not always balanced. One day can be crazy and the next there isn't a lot going on. Management is sometimes not as organized as they could be, but it is a work in progress. Communication between departments could also be improved.
I applied online. I interviewed at Agora Financial (Miami, FL) in January 2015.
On phone and then in person, clear and straight forward and they gave good over view of what the job involved and what you are accountable for. In person was pleasant and no pressure, very relaxed.
