    I have been working at Austen Morris Associates full-time

    Pros

    AMA has quite the multi-cultural team environment and it is definitely a great starting point if you want a financial career. Intro training is very good and the Senior Management makes sure you feel welcome since day one.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work for a commission based job. Talking to Chinese secretaries can be stressful and frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on motivating the team as you have been doing until today. Keep throwing those off-work activities that you are so good at!

    I have been working at Austen Morris Associates full-time

    Pros

    A fun and rewarding work environment. Financial rewards are directly proportional to the amount of work you put in. The industry is growing and more and more people need the platforms and services that the company provides.

    Cons

    The work itself could be challenging and requires a certain mindset which not everybody has. Skill sets gained will be very valuable in the broader job market.

    Advice to Management

    Platforms and services should continue to adapt with changing market needs. Opportunities to cross-sell and network should be explored and integrated with current processes. Keep up the good work.
