    I have been working at Assent LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Assent has great rates and I work closely with programmers to create trading programs that my trading group uses each day. My group leader answers all questions and addresses all problems promptly.

    Cons

    Help desk is pretty much worthless as they are at most prop firms. Sometimes I feel like I am doing them a favor by pointing out a problem that affect all of us. The software is a little dated, but that is what I am use to having traded this platform off and on for the last 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the help desk and have a squawk box system to alert traders of problems through audio to prevent additional unnecessary mistakes by the trader.

    I worked at Assent LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company has great co workers, good software, and a nice office environment. They have a very laid back office lifestyle. Also the software is pretty good.

    Cons

    You don't get any health benefits when working here. Also top management is only looking out for themselves. The only time you ever interact with them is when getting paid.
