    I worked at Market Traders Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at MTI was very rewarding. The culture was very fun and fast-paced. One of the only constants at MTI was change, which may be off-putting to some, but it helps you to grow immensely.

    We often spoke about different levels of comfort. There are three levels; comfortable, uncomfortable and overwhelmed. When you're comfortable or overwhelmed, you learn nothing. But, when you're uncomfortable, that's where the magic happens.

    Early in my career at MTI I was uncomfortable all the time; doing things I'd never done, saying things I'd never said and being a bit overwhelmed with the changes which came so often. When I learned to embrace these as positive influences is when my career with MTI took off.

    I achieved so much in such a short space of time and I regret having to leave the company when I did. I think the question you need to ask yourself if you're considering working at MTI is: "Am I willing to put in the time and effort to make myself better?" -- No one comes into MTI the finished article and everyone who leaves MTI will come out with new skills they didn't have before.

    In addition to that, they pay extremely well and have amazing benefits to boot. I'm not just talking about a ping-pong table, which yes, they do have one -- I'm talking about free healthcare, free snacks and drinks every day, free breakfast on Friday mornings and company sponsored events where you're rewarded for your success.

    This company definitely knows how to spread the wealth and enjoy the victories that it accomplishes.

    During my time at MTI, we grew exponentially. Thus, I have only experienced a handful of months where a team underperformed. When this happened, we didn't get someone shouting at us, we ramped up training and tried to focus in on the problems and challenges we faced. I appreciated not being blamed for the problem.

    Cons

    It really depends on your attitude and your emotion level. MTI's had some negative reviews written about them in the past and some of it may have had merit, others are sensationalized by a scorned former employee, for whatever reason. Time is a wonderful thing however. It's been more than a year and a half since I worked at MTI and having the hindsight of working in other organizations helps you to realize all the good that MTI had to offer.

    Over my three plus years working at MTI, I did experience "cons" but to the company's credit, they always made efforts to improve on those and move past them. I think that is a mark of a good company, one that sees a mistake and does their best to make it right. MTI has made plenty of mistakes along the way, but so has each of us in our own lives. The difference is, we don't have people writing reviews about us every day to air out our dirty laundry. And if people could write a review about their experience with you personally, for the world to see, what would it say?

    I guarantee we wouldn't have a perfect five stars either, would we?

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the culture you have in place. Continue to work hard to overcome some of the challenges internally, which you're aware of. Diversify senior leadership a bit more to encourage new thoughts and ideas from top-down, which would also stimulate the talent in the company and the trader's consuming the product.

    Interview

    Recruiter based phone interview, then the trainer calls to screen for personal interviews. Then in the personal interview an extraordinary amount of people walk in and out for about an hour or so.
