    I worked at Group One Trading full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun group of guys who know how to have fun at work while still giving it their all. Nice change from a corporate environment.

    Cons

    Very competitive and somewhat territorial.

    Advice to Management

    Management isn't very transparent with their decisions, and they don't communicate enough with their employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, casual dress code and low hours.

    Cons

    Management team is clueless. They change the pay package every 2 months. Traders are underpaid so the partners can make big profits.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell them to go back and finish college and maybe get an MBA. They need to learn how to manage and motivate talent.

    Pros

    Good hours and good training for a college grad.

    Cons

    Company is lead by the wrong people. Evidence is their change in plans every 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about yourselves and instead worry about your people.
