    Pros

    Agora Financial provides a unique environment where hard work, creativity, and innovation are the norm. The entrepreneurial atmosphere and ability to create your own path make for a refreshing corporate culture. There's a reason Agora Inc is always rated by the Sun as one of the Best Place to Work in Baltimore. Great people + great culture = Agora.

    Cons

    The culture at Agora Financial is fast paced and innovative ideas are the norm. If you require excessive hand holding or if you aren’t open to challenging yourself, this might not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing.

    I worked at Agora Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Open management style with a clear desire for you to present ideas and solutions to business problems.
    Above average salary
    Excellent incentives,
    Those whose contribute and work to provide solutions will do very well.

    Cons

    It's a tough business, so bring your A game
    You'll need to be switched on and work in your own time to learn and develop
    You'll never be promoted, you'll need to go prove you can do the job first and then they will give you the credit you deserve.
    Founder is still involved and accessible. Very flat structure.

    I have been working at Agora Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When I interviewed for my current position I simply said "I want a job where I will not be doing the same thing everyday as I do not wish to be bored, I want a challenge and variety!". My then interviewer and my current Manager laughed and assured me that I would never be bored in this Company and she was right! It is a fun, creative, ambitious, hardworking and highly supportive environment to work in.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind at present
