    Pros

    Great experience for financial markets beginners.
    Try to learn as much as you can from your mentors (third month mentor) and from the head trader.

    Cons

    Not enough one-on-one mentoring. Try to teach trainees to see the big picture, because most of them trade charts on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Get Piers more involved with he's thought around Global Macro, specially with the second and third mind trainees.

    I have been working at Amplify Trading full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An excellent course for those interested in trading financial markets. The team are very honest about the highs and lows of the job and offer comprehensive advice about the fundamental and technical aspects of trading.

    Cons

    I'm still in the middle of the course so can't comment fully, but would like more one-on-one sessions. This is a small issue though - mostly the Amplify staff are ready and willing to answer any questions.

    Pros

    Great introduction to the financial markets reflected in the fact the company has numerous institutional level clients and some of the most prestigious Universities in the UK and Europe - this is reflected in the content of the courses delivered. Management and staff are all very approachable and the practical front office experience is the prefect spring board to a career in finance or to further develop experience in trading.

    Cons

    Need a better coffee machine! ... new internal platform is great and a much welcomed improvement from the previous system.

    Advice to Management

    Bigger offices so that we can further the continued expansion of the business. Further targeting of the Amplify brand abroad.

    Pros

    Awesome management, very very helpful. Nice open door attitude to all trainees. Very comprehensive programme.

    Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to get into prop trading

    Cons

    Not as much time in the office as i would have liked. A lot of the scheme was attended remotely therefore there is a bit of confusion about certain things.

    Expensive, but they are a highly reputable firm.

    Advice to Management

    Give trainees more time in the office, maybe have a session every week where trainees can ask some of teh traders different questions about the development to become a trader.

    Pros

    Invaluable experience overall: the learning curve is steep and traders are very helpful

    Cons

    Really no cons, however, would be better if the course was longer. 3 months just isn't enough to feel confident trading
